Even Earth is Heavenly in Lovely Bones
Star Saoirse Ronan talks about her initial experiences on set.
"We did the stuff leading up to her murder and we haven't done any of the underground stuff yet with Mr. Harvey and stuff," said Ronan. "We've actually done some stuff in the house and it was great to do stuff on earth and do some bits in heaven, like in the house we did some stuff which is in heaven. It's hard to explain but you'll know what I mean when it comes out."
This won't be the average ghost story where Ronan stands on the set and the other actors ignore her. Jackson did full on special effects to make her appear in the earth scenes. "They did their scenes and then another day I did my scene and it's like I can hear voices but I can't see anyone. There's nobody there. So it's kind of like I'm in this different realm but yet there's still a small connection. I can still hear them but I can't see them or touch them."
Plus, there's still heaven itself to look forward to. "I'm actually going next week. I'm so excited, it's unbelievable. Peter's going to do it in such a way that it's really beautiful. It's seen through a child's eye, kind of like Atonement I suppose, and kind of Susie's imagination makes heaven. It's really beautiful. I don't want to give too much away but it's really gorgeous."
