Elizabeth Wood on Her Shockingly Graphic, Controversial New Film White Girl | Vogue
Welcome to Girl Rising , our new recurring interview series featuring our favorite newcomers on the verge of stardom. This week, actress Morgan Saylor on starring in White Girl and why sex on film is still so polarizing. After watching her snort massive amounts of cocaine, sell massive amounts of cocaine and lose all the money she made selling said cocaine in White Girl , I'm shocked when Morgan Saylor answers the phone for our interview with a modest whisper of a voice. The year-old actress, who got her start playing Brody's daughter Dana on Homeland , confirms she's vastly different from Leah, the bleach-blonde, hard-partying Midwestern transplant she plays in White Girl , director Elizabeth Wood's first feature and Saylor's first starring role.
Morgan Saylor Talks Sex, Drugs and her Scandalizing New 'White Girl' Role
Summer, New York City. A college girl falls hard for a guy she just met. After a night of partying goes wrong, she goes to wild extremes to get him back. Leah Morgan Saylor , the doll-faced blond protagonist of this movie, written and directed by Elizabeth Wood, is an ebullient New York City college student with an appetite for marijuana, cocaine and casual sex.
Leah, a reckless hedonist with no impulse control, eagerly accepts his offer. He begins to kiss her, and she initially reciprocates. Then he flips her roughly against the wall and pulls up her skirt. We see her expression change; she struggles and makes sounds indicating discomfort before freeing herself from his grip.
