Blanchett praised Cincinnati’s architecture and city officials when talking about the process of filming ‘Carol’ downtown.
“When I first found out we were shooting here, I didn’t – I was like how can we shoot New York in the 50’s in Cincinnati,” stated Mara in the interview. “It made no sense to me, but I can’t imagine we’d be able to find locations anywhere else – it’s really been incredible.”
Numerous actors that were seen in the film will be in attendance at the watch party Sunday held at the Trancept beginning at 7 p.m. through the end of the award ceremony.
