The Hollywood Reporter: Rian Johnson on Ozymandias
The Baby Holly moment with Walt in the restroom was a standout moment. How did that work out so well?
We got really lucky, actually. You can’t really direct a baby. We were playing at the scene, and originally as written it was just going to be a beat where Bryan lifts Baby Holly up to eye level, and just looking at her Walt has this change of heart and realizes he can’t do it. He lifted up the baby, and the baby’s mom was three feet away behind the camera, and the baby had eye contact with the mom, and she started saying the word “mama” over and over. Bryan used it and played it perfectly. Obviously the baby was brilliant, but the credit goes to Bryan for using that and playing off of it so well. That’s the sort of thing you can never plan, and you have to go with it when it happens.
That must have been amazing to watch.
It was pretty electric on the day. We were all gathered around the monitor just off set and we all just looked at each other. Our eyes went wide. “Oh my God! Tell me we’re rolling.”
