ASOS MAGAZINE CHATS WITH RACHELLE VINBERG
By Sam Higgins, December 4, 2018
"She would ask us questions, take us to hang out and we got to know each other. She knew everything, she definitely inspired me with how she does realism [in her directing]."
On changing perceptions about skateboarding
"[It’s important] just showing girls skating more in the media as a normal thing. I never saw pictures of girls skateboarding on billboards growing up, however, after visiting London earlier this year, there were so many young girls skating at South Bank."
On speaking up about what she believes in
"It’s important [tackling issues in movements] because if one person was skating on the street, no one’s going to look, but when there’s a group, it makes this huge noise that everyone has to just stare."
On her new-found fame
"The day the film premiered, I was skating to the movie theater because we were doing a Q&A and this guy on the street saw me — he had just seen the film — and he was so confused. He thought it was a fake movie, he was trippin’ out like, 'You’re real?' and I’m like, 'Yeah,' and just skated away. It was funny."
On playing herself in the film and fulfilling her childhood dreams
"I always wanted to act when I was little and then it kind of went away because I thought it was just like theater. I also want to do directing and just make stuff."
On what the future holds
"Gosh, I guess I need to figure out what I want to do, I feel like I need to start or nothing’s going to happen."
"It was a weird moment. We were like, 'Wow! We’re just [kids] from the city and now Diplo is DJing for us and Usher is singing with us.'"
On who she’d like to work with in the future
"Timothée Chalamet. Oh my God, That would be crazy. He’s like on another level though, he’s crazy good. He went to the same school as the other girls!"
