Olivia Cooke had no formal training and claims to have no real process. Is she just a natural? A freak of nature? How else to explain the incredible range and astounding talent of this rising star? I first took note of her work in the black comedy “Thoroughbreds,” and then Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” and the British mini-series “Vanity Fair.” She is on fire now with three new films, “Little Fish,” “Pixie,” and last year’s “Sound of Metal.” I ask her to break down one amazing scene in the latter, and she talks about the advantages of its immersive filming process. She explains the importance of not taking herself or the job too seriously, and why she once needed to punch a wall to make herself cry.
