Finding Hera

When Hera Hilmar was cast in Mortal Engines through a Skype call
Finding Hera

For the success of a film, it is of utmost importance to find right actors. For the upcoming movie, Mortal Engines, too, it was very crucial to find an actress for the role of the protagonist, Hester Shaw. The search for Hester was extensive, global and critical. Then one fine day, the makers received an audition tape from Icelandic actor Hera Hilmar. That tape was so flawless that it only took them a Skype call with Hilmar to bring her on-board without ever meeting her in person. Hilmar will be seen in Mortal Engines which releases in India on December 7. Speaking about Hilmar’s audition, writer Philippa Boyens said, “Hera reminds me of Ingrid Bergman.”
