Transcript for Jennifer Connelly talks about her new series, ‘Snowpiercer’
Back now on "Gma" our next guest is an Oscar winning actor and now Jennifer Connelly is starring in the post 0 pock lippic TV thriller "Snowpiercer." It takes place on a per pet whamly moving train. Let's take a look at a clip. Strawberries, they're suss sentable to soil fungi. So are we actually, you, me, everyone on the train so don't let these proliferate either. Everything here survives at the mercy of his balance. And the truth is you need strawberries more than he needs you. Ooh, Jennifer Connelly joins us now. Thanks for being with us. Before we get to the series, I want to talk a little about what you're dealing with in quarantine. I know your youngest is in third grade and so you like so many parents are helping out with the classroom, the home classroom. How is it going? That's right. Well, we have -- we have an 11th grader and we have a third grader here at home, you know, they miss their friends, but I have to say the school has done an amazing job, so thank you to their teachers and thank you to all the teachers out there who are providing these programs for our kids. And you know there have been many days when I thought, you know, dropping my daughter off at school, god, I wish I could spend my day in third grade and I'm getting a little taste of that now. And honestly cherishing the time I have sitting by her side and working on fractions, you know. They grow up fast. They do. They do. I know. I've got three at home too and thinking this is a little clearished us time which is kind of cool and some time to watch your new movie. Let's talk about "Snowpiercer." It's based actually on a movie of the same name from the director bon June hoe, winner director of "Parasite." Had you seen this movie before taking on the role? I had seen the movie. It's a fantastic movie. He's a very director, the cast is phenomenal. I enjoyed it a lot and I thought that the material could lend itself really well to a TV show. That there was more to explore there, so I was excited to get on board as it were. Yeah, it is a little eerie in these times because it's sort of art imitating life these days. A lot of people confined in relatively close quarters because of the pandemic. Did this show prepare you at all for that? Just curious. Wow, well, I don't think any of us saw this coming -- I didn't see this coming for sure. Well, I'll say I'm grateful not to be on a train, you know. We can go outside. We can take walks, get some fresh air. The passengers of snowpiercer aren't able to do that. Gives you perspective and your co-star, what was it like working with him. Were you a big fan of "Hamilton" before. He's phenomenal. He is so talented. He's such a great collaborator. So much fun to spend time with. Super srt so it was lovely. It was really the whole process was great, you know, the experience of doing it was really wonderful. Great community. We cannot wait to watch. Thank you, Jennifer Connelly, so much, for being with us today. Wish you the best and "Snowpiercer" premieres Sunday night
