Ryan Gosling Talks Childhood Impressions Of ‘Blade Runner’ And Harrison Ford Collaboration

Ryan Gosling, director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) and Harrison Ford team up for Blade Runner 2049, a movie that has already garnered heaps of praise. In this post Gosling talks about the first day Ford came to set and also reminisces about another first – his initial impression of Blade Runner at the tender age of 12.

**When asked about working with Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling gave a rather film noir-ish answer (which was fitting since the Blade Runner features are a sci-fi/film noir hybrid):

“Well he arrived in a very cinematic way. We heard it was very darkly lit. You could only distinguish people by their silhouette. Suddenly this very distinctive silhouette appears. He steps into the light and he looks at meĀ  . . . like I was an eight year old kid who had just broke his window. And then (he) immediately put us at ease because he’s the best collaborator you could ever ask for. (He) brings the experience and intent of making something great.”


Ryan Gosling on how Blade Runner impacted him as a child, and the audio version is an expansion of that answer:

“What’s interesting about the film is not just the experience of watching it but how it stays with you. I wasn’t asking myself at 12 what it meant to be a human being but I was after it or maybe not consciously but subconsciously those seeds were planted.”


Blade Runner 2049, co-starring Sylvia Hoeks and Jared Leto, opens nationwide October 6. Anderson Cowan and I discuss the film on the latest episode of CinemAddicts, which you can hear below:
