The Film That Lit My Fuse is a Deadline video series that aims to provide an antidote to headlines about industry uncertainty by swinging the conversation back to the creative ambitions, formative influences and inspirations of some of today’s great screen artists.
Every installment asks the same five questions. Today’s subject is Sienna Miller, the British-American actress who is currently starring in Tara Miele’s Wander Darkly. Miller’s screen career got going in the noughties, when she featured in movies including Alfie, Layer Cake, and Factory Girl. She earned a Golden Globe and BAFTA nomination for her role in the BBC and HBO’s Alfred Hitchcock TV drama The Girl, in which she played Tippi Hedren. Since then, memorable performances have included her turn in American Sniper, while she also appeared next to Chadwick Boseman in 21 Bridges. Miller is currently filming Anatomy of a Scandal for Netflix.
In The Film That Lit My Fuse, Miller reflects on the impact films including E.T. and Braveheart had on her when she was young, as well as her love of Magnolia and subsequent friendship with Thomas Anderson. Miller also talks about her passion for stage work.
