In her monthly column, Olivia Williams reflects on autumn bike rides and newly discovered connections

Aaaand "I just got off the phone with her and she told me how she recently got a job because the director had read the book and picked up on some advice I offered, about accessing the vast talent pool of female actors we have by rethinking the lead of your film as a female character (assuming the story began life with a male lead). The director did just that, rewrote the script with a female lead and Olivia ended up getting cast. Awesome!" | Olivia Williams to speak at the London Screenwriters’ Festival… Everything she ever learned form working with Wes Anderson, M.Night Shyamalan, Roman Polanski and many more…

As she prepares to star in Bergman's 'Scenes from A Marriage', Olivia Williams talks to Tim Robey about spouses, sexism and filming with Arnie.

Olivia Williams bounds in for our interview with short, chic hair and dark blue dungarees. She might have been doing a spot of DIY; in fact, she’s just been screaming bloody murder at her husband in rehearsals. Her real one’s the actor Rhashan Stone; her stage one’s Mark Bazeley, in 'Scenes from a Marriage', the forthcoming Trevor Nunn revival of Ingmar Bergman’s squabble-fest.

I'm going to put up all sorts of epilepsy warnings for this Q&A. How bad is the shaky-camera effect of this video? Very.

It's twenty minutes long. I think OW answers a question around 11 minutes in (she answers after Aaron Taylor Johnson and before Matthew MacFadyen)

Random Roles: Olivia Williams
by Scott Tobias February 16, 2010

To me, that’s the challenge of acting. We had an ancient Prussian acting coach at my drama school who said the worst offense you could commit was to let your subtext show. He would say, [Prussian accent.] “Your subtext is showing.” )

Olivia Williams
• Stay open. Acting is specific, because it requires co-operation and social interaction – both to observe, experience and empathise with other human behaviours in order to reproduce them believably on stage or screen, or just to work with other actors to create a scene.

•Relax. That doesn't mean the work itself or the preparation is relaxed, but the beginning of the process – the reading of the script and the vision of how it can be realised – is not forced. Then, when inspiration has struck, comes the messy process of practicalities.
