Naomie Harris' Oscar nomination required three days work
Naomie Harris received an Oscar nomination on the back of three days work.
The 40-year-old beauty is up for a Best Supporting Actress gong at the annual awards bash for her starring role in 'Moonlight', but Naomie has admitted she spent barely any time making the movie.
She shared: "I only had three days to shoot the movie. We shot the whole thing completely out of sequence, so I was going from older to younger middle age, all over the place. It was never meant to be like that.
"I was supposed to shoot, I think, over three weeks. But they couldn't get my visa sorted, so it ended up being condensed into just three days."
Naomie - who plays a crack addict in the critically acclaimed movie - revealed director Barry Jenkins played a crucial part in her on-screen performance.
She told W magazine: "Barry was so calming and reassuring and he just made me feel like it was perfectly possible to do this.
"Also, I had done my research beforehand, so I knew the character. I felt like I knew her inside out. I felt like I knew her more than any other character that I've played because I knew I had such little time on set."
Naomie previously admitted to having reservations about playing a crack addict in the movie, admitting she didn't want to perpetuate any negative stereotypes about black women.
She explained: "I didn't want to play a crack addict. I feel that there are enough negative portrayals of women in general and black women in particular.
"I grew up with this really strong mother - really intelligent, powerful, independent, and I've always admired her.
"She was part of a group of strong, powerful women, as well. I very rarely saw those women represented on screen. When I started my career, I set out to represent them."
