Chris has posted in our forum a quote from Natalie Portman talking about how was to work with Winona. Check it:
LfF: What was it like to work with Winona Ryder (who plays the ballet companyâ€™s previous Swan Queen, who usurped by Ninaâ€™s casting, spirals into self destruction)? Was she someone you looked up to, growing up as an actress?
Absolutely. I think Iâ€™ve probably watched her more than any other actress. If you think about how many great movies in which she had the lead roleâ€¦ I donâ€™t think thereâ€™s any actress that can compare. Between, you knowâ€¦ Mermaids and Heathers and Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands and Reality Bites and ummm Dracula, Age of Innocence, Little Womenâ€¦ Itâ€™s crazy when you think about it. Most actresses have one of those movies. Sheâ€™s really iconic and I was really excited to get to work with her and she was amazing. She was kind and professional and patient, because you know there were days when sheâ€™d have to wait around for a long time. She just was completely humble and wonderful, and to watch her turn on such extreme emotions so quickly â€“ it was just an honour to watch her work and I hope I get another chance.
