Plus, her love of ‘Sing Street’, why she’d like to guest star on ‘Killing Eve’, and future projects.
With the Russo brothers new movie Cherry now streaming on Apple TV+, I recently had the chance to speak with Ciara Bravo about making the film that’s based on the 2018 Nico Walker novel of the same name, with a script penned by Angela Russo-Otsot and Jessica Goldberg. The movie is told in six chapters and starts with Cherry (Tom Holland) meeting the love of his life (Bravo) at college, and through a series of events he ends up serving in the Iraq War as an Army medic. Once home, he battles the demons of undiagnosed PTSD and spirals into drug addiction, which leads him to robbing banks to fund his habit. Cherry also stars Kelli Berglund, Thomas Lennon, Jack Reynor, Michael Gandolfini, and Jeff Wahlberg.
During the interview, Bravo talked about the very unusual way she landed the role, the significance of the white ribbon that her character wears in the film, how she got ready to play someone who is high on camera, her reaction to the finished film, whys she loved Henry Jackman’s score, and more.

“It was so epic that, for a long time, I wasn’t really aware of it being that epic.”
