Kim Bubbs Divulges Spoiler-Free Secrets From ‘On the Road’Kim Bubbs Divulges Spoiler-Free Secrets From ‘On the Road’How did you get involved with ‘On the Road’? That sounds like a cool project.
Yes! It’s a really cool project, and it’s a total departure from ‘The Thing.’ It’s based on Jack Kerouac’s famous book, and shot in seven locations throughout the world. In that film I play Sal Paradise’s — played by Sam Riley — real, true gal. At the end of his adventures he decides to change his life and settle down with Laura, who is my character. Great cast. The director is Walter Salles, who directed ‘The Motorcycle Diaries.’ I think it’s going to be a really exciting project coming out next year.
There are a lot of big names in the movie, like Kristen Stewart and Garrett Hedlund. What was the dynamic like on set?
Most of my scenes were with Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley, who are fantastic. They’re amazing. This is a film that really toured around, just like the book. The funny part is that shooting ‘The Thing,’ we were wearing snowpants in May, June, and we were boiling. Then shooting ‘On the Road’ it was December and I was in a strapless ball gown. It was quite funny.
