Actress Rebecca Hall on why she was drawn to 'Christine'

Hosted by ,  • 

Actress Rebecca Hall's agents were initially less than enthusiastic about her desire to play Christine Chubbuck, a troubled TV news reporter who in 1974 committed suicide on live television. But Hall was unwavering in her decision. She tells us why she was so determined to star in Christine, a film with a small budget and without a big name director. And she talks about having most of her role in a much bigger film -- Marvel's Iron Man 3 -- cut from the script in the middle of production.
