Jessica Chastain Talks Broadway Debut During TimesTalk

Posted Monday September 10, 2012 9:08 PM GMT

Opening up about her career and recent work, Jessica Chastain was the guest of honor at Monday night's (September 10) TimesTalk at The TimesCenter in New York City.

While donning a gorgeous red dress, the “Lawless” actress talked to host Charles McGrath about her Broadway debut this fall in a new production of the Tony Award-winning play “The Heiress.”

In a recent interview with the New York Times, the 35-year-old talked about her career saying, "“I’ve always made really strange choices, maybe because no one told me otherwise."

Miss Chastain also dished on her first audition using a near-pornographic version of Juliet’s “Gallop apace” soliloquy, explaining, “I thought the language was very sexual, so I was like ‘Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-brow’d night, give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die, take him.’ And it ended with me rolling around on the ground. I think it was probably pretty shocking.” She recalled that Michael Kahn — one of Juilliard’s renowned teachers — turned to her and said, “Jessica, did you have fun?”
