Every time you get the call to come back to the “Fast” family, do you come prepared with some ideas of your own about what you’d like to see Mia do?
I definitely do now. I didn’t before, because before they were so spread out and sort of sporadic that it was very difficult for me to have a sense of continuity between all of them. But now, for example, and especially with the added dynamic of Jakob, it’s much easier to come up with ideas spontaneously.
Mia was in touch with Jakob behind Dom’s back, let’s explore that a little bit more. Letty and Mia have never really had scenes together, let’s actually get them in a scene together. That was something that Michelle brought up, and then I was like, “Yeah, actually, how could I not have thought about that? That’s really important. Let’s flesh out our relationship.” Now I think we should do the same thing with Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel), where we all go on a mission together. I think that would be really fun. So yes, I often try to.
I feel bad for Justin [Lin, director] because I feel like Justin’s getting hit on all ends with all of us going, “Well, I’d like to do this” and “I’d like to do this,” but absolutely, I think we all put our two cents in.
