Anne said that ‘the sheer act of making it, of doing something so collaborative and audacious made us all very focused and open – and strangely free.’

Adding: ‘Like the odds were so against us anyway that is made me want to lean into the exhilaration and take risks with my performance.’

While she felt safe at work, the star did say she felt nervous taking off her mask amid the alarming number of cases of COVID-19 around the world. 

The Oscar winner said: ‘It was scary taking my mask off every day, and so I really appreciated how committed the crew was to keeping their masks on – even when we were shooting in hot rooms and they were carrying heavy camera and lighting equipment they were always, always masked. Their professionalism helped keep me safe, and I was incredibly grateful to them.’

The movie star talked about her character Linda as she and her partner Paxton, played by Chiwetel, navigate lockdown amid a pandemic while on the brink of a separation.

The characters live together during the pandemic and make it through with wine and a shared love of poetry, the outlet reported. 

‘Linda has been carrying around so much tension for so long. This film is partially about how the chaos of lockdown allows her to release that tension, let go of whatever BS was getting her through the day and how she gets all the way honest about what authenticity and freedom mean to her. She is messy and a little nuts and I liked that.’

The film, which is a heist/romantic comedy according to Deadline, was shot in London during the pandemic by director Doug Liman. 

Lockdown, previously called Locked Down, debuts on HBO Max on January 14, 2021.
