00:00
I like to think about the ghost of Patrick Swayze
00:04
behind me guiding my hands.
00:06
(laughing)
00:08
Hey, I'm Laura Harrier.
00:09
I'm gonna be in the new Spiderman that comes out this July.
00:13
I'm playing Liz Allan, the love interest of Peter Parker.
00:16
We are here at my ceramics studio in Brooklyn today
00:20
and I'm making you some pots!
00:23
So, let's see if we can make a bowl,
00:25
like one and a half pounds would be good.
00:27
You need to start kneading the clay.
00:30
It's kinda making me outta breath.
00:31
Like I've been doing this forever.
00:35
First thing we do is center the clay.
00:41
Staring down it's a little hypnotizing.
00:43
You kinda just like are completely out of it.
00:47
So, now that it kind of is there,
00:49
I'm gonna start to make the hole.
00:51
I'm gonna widen it.
00:52
I'm gonna open up the center.
00:54
I think an actor's a weird job
00:55
because you are, sort of, an artist or whatever
00:57
but you don't have this tangible thing that you make.
01:00
It was actually right after I tested for Spiderman,
01:03
they made me wait like 6 weeks before I heard anything
01:06
and I was going crazy.
01:07
So I took a ceramics class
01:09
and I just kind of got back into it.
01:11
You start with this lump of nothing
01:13
and then you can create all these things.
01:15
And it's just nice to make things with your hands.
01:17
And now, we're gonna bring up the walls.
01:21
And it'll keep getting taller, like that.
01:24
And then we'll, sort of, start to shape it into our bowl.
01:28
So, I think this guy is done.
01:31
Ta-da!
01:33
It was like a ghost,
01:35
but then was in a flashback, too.
01:37
I think they were, like, having ghosty clay sex.
