Door, originally uploaded by foolscircle.

Meaghan Falvey, who plays the character of Door in “Neverwhere” over at the Actors Gymnasium, has a number of sequences where she manages to look simply enchanting. One of my favorite touches is the way in which there’s a keyhole is incorporated into the design of her costume and how she manages to pull off the strange steampunk/street urchin look. Anyway, after the dress rehearsal finished, Meaghan was sitting in the… you know, I have no idea what the hell those things are called. You know those silk sheets used by aerial performers? Well, she was sitting in a swing made from two of them tied together at the base.

Anyway, Meaghan looked simply lovely in the light, and so I made her sit still while I snapped off a couple of shots. Seriously, she was trying not to crack up during this sequence, but she put up with my insane demands (“turn away… good, now look over your shoulder at me… stop smiling, dammit!”) and the end result is one of my favorite photos from the set.
