Carla Gugino On Girls On The Bus, Mike Flanagan, Spy Kids


And finally, THEN: Have you ever taken a prop from a set after filming wrapped? If so, what have you taken?

Wow, that is a good question. I have over the years, grabbed a few things. Recently, in The Fall of the House of Usher, Mike Flanagan gave me the most exquisite antique book of The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe. That was really extraordinary. I have the handcuffs from Gerald’s Game

It’s funny, it wasn’t until later that I thought, Oh, it would be kind of cool to collect stuff. I’ve worked with Robert De Niro a couple of times in my career, which is such an awesome experience on both counts, but he’s really great at collecting stuff, and I wish I had learned that earlier. 

I always take a piece of clothing. I always have at least one outfit. I still have, from The Buccaneers, one of the exquisite corsests, which was made by CosProp in England. I do have an outfit, at least, from every character. Oh, and by the way, wigs. Like, from Elektra Luxx and Women In Trouble. So, I do have some blonde wigs, too.

Also, one thing I do really have fun with is whenever I play a character where there’s been a doll of some sort made, I always make sure to grab it. Like, I have an Ingrid Cortes from Spy Kids, and I do have my character from Bly Manor. I have Sally Jupiter [from Watchmen], too. Those are fun and those have become a little collection.
