How Blake got into acting
She had fun growing up in a show-business family. Her mom taught acting classes after her modeling career ended and took Blake along with her so she would not have to stay with a babysitter. Her brother had a big part in getting her into acting because that was the last thing she wanted to do because her family was full of actors/actresses. He talked her into going to an audition.She thought she should do it because he was always nice to her. She ended up going to a couple more and that is how she received her first job in the movie The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
Blake’s movie with Ben Affleck
Now she is in a movie with Ben Affleck called The Town. The movie is about a crew of men from a neighborhood in Charlestown who rob a bank. Which Affleck heads up and has strong ties to the neighborhood. Thank goodness there is a code of silence within these neighbors. Things get hairy when Affleck starts having feelings for the woman he held up at the bank. Blake plays Affleck’s ex-girlfriend that has a lot of trouble being a single mother and selling drugs just to barely get by. Blake also had to struggle with still having strong feelings for Affleck.
Getting in touch with her character
Blake ventured out of her comfort zone with this movie. She had to go in the projects of Boston to get her accent down just right and to get the feel of her character. She also had one of her friends from Gossip Girl that was from Boston have some of her family come down to New York to help with the accent. She enjoyed spending time in the projects to help get in touch with her character.
The girls that she met and spent time with were really nice to her and it seemed that it did not matter that she was a movie star. They just thought of her as another one of them. One of the girls that she would ride around town with would say “I got Hollywood in my car” just to be playing around. A lot of the girls that helped her with improving her character came to the set to help her with the syllables, but they were also extras in the movie. It meant a lot to her that they approved of her character.
