INTERVIEW with Abby Ryder Fortson
Abby came in and introduced herself and told us she is happy to be back for this film.

She said she got to pour popcorn on Paul’s head, and then the popcorn flew back and it landed all over the scene.
Question 3: What do your friends back home think of you being in Ant-Man? Is it, like, cool, or how do you approach things?
“It’s cool, but some people, I feel like just are my friend because I’m an actor.”

Question 6: So what’s it like coming back to the set and being reunited with them? How does that feel? Like, what are your favorite parts of that?

Question 15: What’s your favorite thing about filming movies?
“Meeting everybody, meeting new people, going new places. I don’t really have a favorite.”
Question 16: How many times do you have to, like, read the lines before you get it, like?
She said twice. She practices it with her dad.
Her dad made the following remarks: “My wife and I are actors, so she kinda grew up in the zone, and I’ve said she’s a really, really quick studier, so she will read it a couple of times, and she’s pretty much got it memorized. And then we just kind of talk about it, and talk about what’s happening, and would you say that’s pretty much, that pretty much puts it together? Abby said yes.
Question 17: Do you have any funny stories from on set? Any pranks; anything?
“Yes. There was a time in the maze where we were going through lasers made out of yarn, and then I got through them so easily, and Paul kept doing it and doing it, and I kept getting zapped, and we were pretending. And then also after the fifth shot of doing it, he was tired of doing it, he was, like, oh my god, we’re doing this again?”
