Supercell It is an important movie for both of them Daniel Diemer And Jordan Christine Simon in their own way. As for Diemer, who you may know from Netflix’s Half of itThe upcoming disaster film marks his first leading role in a movie (no small feat when you think about it SupercellThe stacked cast includes Alec Baldwin, Skeet Ulrich, and Anne Heche). “I was in second place [The Half of It]but [for Supercell]I’ve been in every day,” he said in our Zoom interview ahead of the movie’s release. Of course, Dymer doesn’t matter where he falls on the call sheet; doing a good job is the priority. [just] Try to stay focused. The days were really rough – we were just racing. There were some takes where we had one to do it and then we have to move on.”
Meanwhile, for Seamón—whose now-underrated HBO series is his only other acting source at the moment— We are who we are – Not only Supercell her feature film debut, but her time in the movie — specifically, the relationship she had with Heche — assured her that it was the right path for her to be on the right track. “It’s a tough field to be in,” she said of acting, and Anne explained that it was something she really wanted me to pursue. I am really glad I got the chance to work with her […] She was very, very happy and very healthy.”
Directed by Herbert James Winterstern (who also co-wrote the screenplay with Anne Elizabeth James), Supercell Follows William Brody as he embarks on a personal quest to chase down one of the most powerful storms on record. It’s been a decade since his father, a famous storm chaser, lost his life while in the field. In fact, his father’s unfinished business is one of the few things William has left of him, so, against the wishes of his retired mother (Heche), he tracks down his father’s former field partner (Ulrich) to hunt down a “cage bear,” one of the most dangerous storms that can Nature creates it.

When discussing the responsibility he felt as a leader, Diemer said Supercell. “You get into somebody’s project, and you don’t know how they want to handle things, and you don’t know how it works.” That’s why, even though he only had a week and a half between landing the role and starting production, it was important for him to establish a real relationship with his co-stars as best he could. For example, he and Ulrich were able to rent a car a few days before filming began and explore the area where they were staying/shooting. With Seamón, who plays Harper, William’s best friend (and love interest), Diemer initiates a one-on-one Zoom meeting.
“A big part of that, for me, is: How do we make everyone feel comfortable? And then: How do I serve the project and the actors that I’m working with so that we can really collaborate in a really beautiful way?” More than just an indication of the kind of lead Dymer aspired to be SupercellHowever, this modus operandi—by making the effort to foster a relationship with fellow actors—is essentially how he thrives as an actor. “I love getting into those personal relationships, and [think about] How do we function as humans? And then, create the characters on top of that.”
You only need to watch Supercell To see what organic chemistry looks like between Deamer and his cohorts, effectively establishing the larger natural disaster narrative in a story about family. It’s “Speilberg-ian energy,” as Flickering Myth described it in their review. In fact, Winterstern’s goal, according to his director’s note, was to bring back the ’90s family/adventure movie, along the lines of Jurassic Park – which means an enjoyable and comprehensive experience. Between the rain machines and the 10-foot fans and leaf blowers that simulate storm conditions, “It was a blast. I was having the time of my life,” Demmer said.

Simon, too, has an unforgettable experience working on it Supercell. Having grown up on Steven Spielberg’s adventure films, Winterstern’s screenplay checked all the boxes for her. “When I first said I wanted to be an actor, those were the types [projects] Which I was thinking about,’ she said. And when Jimmy gave me this opportunity, I was like, yeah, 100 percent, sure. “Furthermore , Supercell The character shared a connection with the person you played We are who we are, which eventually piqued her interest. Caitlin [from We Are Who We Are]while they moved in, Harper was too, so I guess it was meant to be in a way.”
After William temporarily runs away from home, Harper and his mom Quinn embark on a road trip together to hunt him down. As the only two people in William’s life, Harper and Quinn have one of the most exciting relationships in history Supercell, a subtle dynamic made even more noticeable and engaging thanks to Seamón and Heche’s onscreen chemistry (as seen in our exclusive clip here). In the movie, Harper lost her drive which was, in fact, close to Winterstern’s house. Jimmy said a lot [his own experience and grief] In the conversations we had when we were building the character.” She added, “It was a lot of fun navigating it. It’s something I’ve never had to navigate as an actor before, and I’m really grateful I asked Jamie to help me through that, and explain it in such an amazing way.”
With Heche, who tragically passed away in August 2022, Seamón recalled how instant their relationship became — “within seconds, to be exact — so much so that they ended up getting matching tattoos on each other.” for Quinn, who fell in love with Seamón as an idea to get a real tattoo.” It was an unforgettable experience and strengthened my friendship with Anne. She was one of the people I developed a close friendship with.” Echoing Demer’s sentiments regarding camaraderie on set being one of the best parts of acting, Simon said, “Being able to see Supercell And you have these amazing experiences and you have new staff that’s part of my contact list, it gives you strength to want to continue [acting]. “
