Meet Emily Humble
A few weeks ago, we cast Atlanta actress Emily Humble as Amber, the leading lady of Special. To introduce her, we decided to ask her a couple of quick questions about the film and her character.
“When did you first hear about Special?”
I actually first heard about Special through my roommate, Travis Grant. He was was the lead in Wesley’s last film, Rearview. Wesley apparently had called Travis letting him know he was getting ready to have auditions for Amber’s role in Savannah and Travis recommended me for the project.
“Can you tell us about your character, Amber?”
Amber is a shy young woman who is a little awkward in social situations. She’s a smart girl who has a little bit of nerdy side to her too which will be evident throughout some of the film. Amber doesn’t really ever get attention from guys and doesn’t know how to react to it when it happens. So when Sam initially starts showing interest in Amber at this party the are both at, it makes her very uncomfortable at first and this is where the relationship between the two of them starts to form.
“Do you identify with Amber and her situation?”
I do. That’s one of the things that I really love about this story. I feel like her character and situation is very easy to relate to for everyone. We have all known an Amber at some point. And we have all been in Amber’s situation, had a friend, or sister or someone we care about go through what we see her go through in this film.
“What do you think will be the biggest challenge for you as an actress working on the film?”
Well, I feel like because of the fact the we have all known someone like Amber who goes through her situation the most important thing for me and also the biggest challenge for me is making that character believable. Being as honest and true to the story as possible. I want people to feel for Amber. She’s an incredibly likeable character and I want the audience emotionally invested in her story.
“Anything else you’d like to add?”
Just that I am thrilled to be able to be a part of this project. I know Wesley is a very talented director and I know the rest of the cast and crew are amazing as well. I can’t wait to get started with filming and even more so, I can’t wait to see the final project once its completed and to be able to show it as a film that I was so proud to be a part of.
