Actor Cara Jade Myers on Martin, Lily, Leo…

Behind-the-Scenes of the Oscar-nominated Killers of the Flower Moon 
Actor Cara Jade Myers on Martin, Lily, Leo, and her Breakout Performance 

Los Angeles, CA (March 19, 2024): This week on Hollywood at Home with The Creative Coalition, listeners are treated to an intimate and powerful discussion with actor Cara Jade Myers who shares her emotional and rewarding journey on Killers of the Flower Moon. 

With the same vulnerability, heart, and compassion that she brought to the role of ‘Anna’ in the Oscar-nominated film, Myers shares details of this life-changing experience – from her nerve-wracking audition for Martin Scorsese to the deeply moving premiere of the film. 

Myers opens up about personal experiences that inspired her scene-stealing performance in Killers of the Flower Moon, working with legends Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, and collaborating with a crew of Indigenous storytellers. In this exclusive interview, she also shares dynamic commentary on the need to change societal perceptions and the importance of Native representation on and off screen.

Highlights from this interview with Myers include open and honest anecdotes about pitching scene changes to DiCaprio and Scorsese, connecting with Indigenous audiences, and the emotional challenges of telling a story focused on the violent efforts to eradicate Native Americans.

Highlights from Hollywood at Home featuring Cara Jade Myers: 

On auditioning for Martin Scorsese: “I had a Zoom, so I had my phone down here and I was taking pictures, and I’m like, ‘If I don’t get this role, I want proof that I Zoomed with him; I met him.’”

Acting alongside legends De Niro and DiCaprio: “[De Niro] is amazing…He’s just super chill. He has the dad vibes, wearing the dad sneakers, just chilling there…And then Leo, he was such a goofball…”

Finding the character of Anna: “She’s…the crazy sister who drinks and parties and doesn’t really care about stuff…And my family, on my father’s side, are alcoholics. We’ve gone through alcoholism – some of my family has died from alcoholism. I knew…she was doing this to numb the pain of something…that really came from the death of her family and the death of her culture, and the identity, and her trying to find her way in this new world.”

What happens after your character dies?: “When I came on set after [Anna was murdered], I had people…look at me like they saw a ghost…I had a couple of people just come up and touch me and then walk away. And I definitely had the feeling [that it was] almost like a grave site.”

On working with a Native cast: “I love working with Indigenous actors, so having Tantoo [Cardinal] there, having [actors] Jill [Dion]…and Janae [Collins], and then there are so many Osage in front of the camera, behind the camera, that it was amazing being surrounded by Native people, especially the Osage, because it’s their story. They know it better than anyone, and being on the Osage land, and actually filming there, it just adds another layer of realness and texture to it.”
