Da’Vine Joy Randolph focused on portraying ‘complexities of average woman’ in ‘The Holdovers’

OHMYGOSSIP — Da’Vine Joy Randolph became fixated on portraying the “complexities” of an “average woman” in ‘The Holdovers’.
The 37-year-old actress – nominated for best supporting actress at Sunday’s (18.02.24) BAFTA awards in London’s Royal Festival Hall for her role as Mary in Alexander Payne’s comedy drama about a bunch of schoolboys marooned in school over Christmas.
She said on the red carpet about her character, who is devastated over the death of her child in the movie: “It was extremely important to show an average woman and to show all the nuances and all the complexities of what it is to be a woman, and a woman in the working class and a woman in a male dominated world.
“(The designers) did a great job of making it all authentic and I knew reading the script it was special.
“The design was above and beyond. They did a phenomenal job. It aids your performance – it bolsters you.
She added about being at the BAFTAs: “I feel excited, so blessed to be here, to meet new people – it feels so special.”
Dominic Sessa, who also landed a best supporting actor nomination for his breakout role in ‘The Holdovers’, echoed Da’Vine by saying the film’s “little details” contributed to its success.
The film centres around a professor at a prestigious boarding school in the early 1970s played by Paul Giamatti, 56, who reluctantly has to take care of those children whose parents can’t have them home for the Christmas holidays.
Dominic, 21, added he “couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to work with” and said director Alexander, 63, “took care” of him.
