You said something a while ago that I can't stop thinking about. You made a post about how ET and adc’s chemistry is unmatched. The more I watch Ftwd the more I realize how right you were. While ADC is brillant, he scenes with other ppl don't hit me emotionally like hers did with ET. Why do you think that is?
Alycia Debnam-Carey is a very, very talented actor. I have a certainly wondered myself the why behind her intense chemistry as a performer with Eliza Taylor. At first I thought it was because they were such good friends. But that can’t be it because their chemistry was FIRE as soon as they shared the same space, and they obviously didn’t know one another then. Also, I thought it can’t be the friend thing because she’s good friends with Frank, Colman, and Mercedes and while her scenes with Colman and Mercedes are good, her scenes with Frank fall flat for me. So it’s not that. She and Frank hang and watch movies together and she met him before she met any other cast member so they’re tight. Maybe even tighter the she and Eliza, but their scenes…. the emotional connection is not there for me. Even when I can tell the directors and writers are trying so damn hard to make it so. And don’t get me started on her scenes with Kim. I would call two of them down right bad which is not something I thought I would ever say about someone as talented as ADC, but they were pretty tragic and not in the emotional way the writers meant them to be. I doubt she and Kim hang out on the weekends but it’s also clear that being friends with someone isn’t want makes or breaks their chemistry as actors.
Neither Eliza nor Alycia has had shared chemistry with a scene partner better than each other in my opinion. I think their scenes together are some of the most emotionally startlingly scenes I have ever watched between two actors. They spent 7 and a half episodes together before they kissed. So I’m not even talking about romantically. I’m talking about any twotwo actors sharing a screen at any given time.
I have no idea. What I do know is that it would be a travesty for them to never work together again.
