Rebel in the Rye wasn’t the only major project Boynton took on in 2017. She also starred in the film Let Me Go, the Netflix series Gypsy with Naomi Watts, and topped it off with the star-studded Murder on the Orient Express. Talk about a jam-packed schedule. When does she sleep?
Working on Murder on the Orient Express was a particularly memorable experience, according to Boynton. “To look across the room at people whose work I’ve grown up watching and admiring was a very surreal, and intimidating, experience,” she shared in an interview with Crash magazine. You know everyone brought their A-game to that set!
Additionally, for Boynton, working with director Kenneth Branagh, who she calls “a master of his art,” was deeply satisfying. “I love that he has ensured the film honors everything one cherishes about Agatha Christie’s work, while also exploring the characters in more depth,” she continued. “Christie’s work is rather dark and I believe he’s really embraced and explored that to a new and greater extent.”
