Interview: Jessica Chastain and Jay Ryan Discuss Most Difficult Scenes to Film, Favorite Karaoke Songs & More

It’s been almost two years since director Andy Muschietti’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, “IT” hit theaters and took the world by storm. Now, the sequel, IT Chapter Two is upon us.

Last week, Geeks of Color had the opportunity to sit down with the cast of the film at a Carnival themed press event. The first interview was with Jessica Chastain and Jay Ryan who play the adult versions of Beverly Marsh and Ben Hanscom.

During the interview the pair discussed their hardest scenes to film. For Chastain, it was the stall of blood scene and for Ryan, it was a sequence that is also tied to Chastain’s scene. They also gave me their fake extended title for IT Chapter Two. We ended the chat on a light note, with the duo revealing their go-to karaoke songs, and which loser they would switch with.

Watch the full interview below:

Be on the lookout for more interviews and our review of the film later this week!
