INTERVIEW: Julie Nathanson on making Gilda Dent her own person in BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN

Julie Nathanson is one of the most prolific voice masters in the industry lending her knacks to high-profile activities such as the Far Cry and Final Fantasy video game franchises. And somehow in between her presentation design, Nathanson has attained the time not only to pursue her interests in psychology earning a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology but likewise raise a family. In Batman: The Long Halloween, she singer Gilda Dent, the long-suffering and forgot bride of Gotham City District Attorney Harvey Dent before his tragic transformation into the villainous Two-Face. It’s a character with mental degree tailor-made for Nathanson.

Julie NathansonTaimur Dar: While the average person on the street who isn’t into comics likely hasn’t speak the original Long Halloween comic, I feel nearly everybody has seen Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight movies which of course were influenced by Long Halloween. Before you became involved with this project were you a comic book reader or very well known Long Halloween?

Julie Nathanson: I had visualized the[ Nolan] movie. I have a smattering of comic books but I do not think it would be fair to categorize myself as a “comic book reader.” That tell me anything, I certainly affection comics and I have been lucky enough to play in this world of DC Comics. I certainly had understanding with this universe.

I did not grant myself to purchase and speak The Long Halloween until I had finished the principal recording. I did not want to be influenced because for me only organizing Gilda as her own party with her own inner live was so important to me and I wanted to be as consistent as what was on the page as possible. Tim Sheridan did such a beautiful place writing this script and the part unit has really made something magnificent.

This cast has been sitting on this secret for three years. We all know we have something special here and we all know we were invited to a very special party. Butch’s theories about how this world would be visually depicted and how Tim brought out the script from the source material, all of these things have felt so clearly special along the way.

Dar: That’s interesting to hear you say you read the comic exclusively after recording. After investigating the cinema myself, I definitely are of the view that screenwriter Tim Sheridan and the filmmakers didn’t change Gilda per se but they brought out nuances that enhanced her character while remaining true to her feeling. In hindsight, is there anything you think would have changed your execution if you read Long Halloween first?

Nathanson: Yes but I don’t know solely what would have changed. I’m going to sound like a hippy-dippy actor but to me, Gilda is now Gilda having colonized her in these two cinemas. There are certainly nuanced gaps, nonetheless. I can’t speak for how it would have altered my performance but I certainly agree with you that Tim did a sumptuou job of inducing insidiou alters particularly in her attribute that give her be singer so perfectly. It felt like a perfect transition so she could come alive on the screen and feel real. I’m always informed by the source material and it’s certainly rare for me to choose to hold learning more. Extremely because I knew the art would be different in some way, I really just wanted to work with what was in front of me. For the process I had as a performer, this is the world in which Gilda is living and there are not many depictions of her that I had found in comics. If it’s looking at her in The Long Halloween, I demand her to live in The Long Halloween “that were” creating. I was pleased to realize how perfectly it blended with the source material itself.

Julie NathansonDar: In addition to being able to Gilda Dent, you likewise voice a small uncredited persona as a young Babs Gordon pre-Batgirl. I was telling screenwriter Tim Sheridan that it’s my favorite situation in the movie and he mentioned it was to illustrate the price of service for people in Gotham City like Gordon. I foresee anyone who grew up with a parent whose job interfered with their family life can associate. Working in the entertainment industry can definitely affect how present you are in a child’s life, so being a parent yourself did this scene have any resonance for you?

Nathanson: That is a phenomenally deep question and I am going to answer it frankly! Yes, it actually did have resonance for me. I have a son and he is eleven. I’m working all the time. I’m going to knock on wood because I adore my work and I relish my job. But I am acutely well understood when to make sure I am spending time with this person that I cherish so profoundly. I know there are responsibilities as a working parent to be able to continue to work as a support to my family.

That scene and that know of a parent not being able to be present for something special are more in line with what I don’t want my son to feel and that I be maintained in knowledge as I prop perspective. My connection with him needs to come first so that I don’t have a scene in “peoples lives” where he feels that I have chosen to be called to work over something that was deeply important to him. That one was right in my heart.

Batman: The Long Halloween is available tomorrow on Digital and on Blu-ray.
