Danny Morgan Mentions Kristen with London Evening Standard
But within two weeks of being cast, he flew to Canada to join Sam Riley, in the Kerouac role, and Tom Sturridge, as the Beat poet Allen Ginsberg, in the star-studded cast, with Kristen Stewart as the wife of one of the gang.
Director Walter Salles got the cast together early. “So by the time we started filming we really had been hanging out together and it felt like a parallel between us making a film and the life they were leading in the book,” Morgan said.
“We were just on this adventure together. We had lots of fun – although I don’t think we were as decadent as they were.”
And Morgan admits it took a little while to get to know Stewart and Mortensen. “They weren’t being distant, I was a bit starstruck. But we went out quite a bit to bars and Kristen would come along. She might have security but most of the time people were cool.”
It was only when they were travelling between locations that also included Mexico, Argentina and the United States that the hysteria surrounding the Twilight star became apparent.
“At airports, there would be thousands of people screaming ‘Kristen’ and going mental. It must be tough. I don’t envy it. I was very impressed by how well she handles it at such a young age.”
