Annie Hägg where passion meets talent Photographer + Glam David Goddard Written by Justine Duclaux

The talented Annie Hägg is from New York and a former student of the renowned Yale School of Drama. Passionate about foreign languages, she has a gift for roles that require an accent or a fluency in a foreign language. The actress is the most electric talent to storm into Hollywood on Amazon’s original series, “Hunters.” She worked hard to get into character. In this intimate interview, Annie Hägg offers anecdotes about her life, the “Hunters” series and her future projects in other films to push herself out of her comfort zone.

I was constantly creating characters and taking them out into I probably conducted about two dozen inthe world.

Finally, on the day we gave our presentations, I invited Jeanette up to New Haven to watch the performance. After I finished, I looked up and there she was in the front row, with tears in her eyes. Which of course, made me cry too! But the best part was afterward watching everyone go up to her and thank her for sharing her amazing life with us. I can’t express how meaningful it was for me to be the conduit bringing Jeanette’s story to the world. As actors we are tasked to bring our whole selves–all our experiences, all our joys and sufferings, all the people we’ve loved and who’ve loved us–to every role. So what happens when the person you’re playing is already part of you? During the performance, I was not only speaking her words and using her gestures but in some sort of cosmic way channeling her essence through years of interactions from some very deep place inside me. It was one of the most rewarding performances of my life.

Natasha in a very experimental production of The Three Sisters helmed by the great Russian director Dmitry Krymov. Natasha is this sort of harsh and vulgar provincial girl who marries into this highly-educated, refined and sensitive family and eventually takes over the entire household. She is vicious and manipulative and everyone hates her so what was interesting for me was figuring out how to not just play her as a villain. I really loved exploring her fragility and vulnerability, and she’s also very funny! I guess I loved playing her because I had to advocate for the parts of her that no one can see or understand, but are there beneath the surface, like a secret. Tell us what you love about your role in the “Hunters” series.

What I love most about Ruth is how she never loses sight of who she is and what she stands for, no matter the circumstances. Her entire family has been killed, she is imprisoned, dehumanized and starved, and Of all the roles you have played in the yet, she somehow maintains hope. Can you past, which one is your favorite? And imagine having hope in Auschwitz? I love why is that? her because she is a beacon of light in unimaginable darkness. Right after I got out of drama school I played

What are some challenges you faced Where does your passion for foreign lanwhile on set? guages come from? I would say the biggest challenge was figuring out how to let go of being Ruth once the cameras were off. It’s not something you just snap out of. On the day we shot the scene where I had all my hair cut off, I came home and broke out in hives. Even though your brain knows it’s pretend, your body doesn’t. Now, what was your favorite moment and why? Something that really sticks out is the day we shot the chess scene in the pilot. In the scene, I see my little sister Chava (played by Cassidy Layton) about to get killed in front of me, and Young Meyer (played by Zack Schor) has to restrain me from intervening to save her. I went to some very dark places in my imagination that day and in between takes, my scene partner Zack held my hand in a death grip – almost like a lifeline tethering me to something safe even though internally I was in a real place of horror. I found Zack’s generosity and support for his fellow actor so moving. We shot practically every scene together and I’m so grateful to him. We really had each other’s backs.

Language allows you to connect to people who are different from you. I think I understood this intuitively at a very young age. When I was in elementary school in New York in the ‘90s, I happened to be in class with large numbers of children whose families had fled the Balkan region because of the war in Kosovo. So every day I was constantly hearing Albanian, Bosnian Serbian, Bulgarian, and Macedonian. I was always very drawn to the way these languages sounded, and would try to repeat what I heard my classmates saying, and because I have always been a good mimic, I was generally successful. I asked them to teach me how to say things (and of course I especially wanted to know the curse words because I was that kind of girl) and the result was that these kids accepted me into their group in a way that the other American kids weren’t. That’s purely because of language. And even though I was a kid just trying to make friends, I understand now that I’ve been using language my whole life to connect to people who are different from me.
