Tawny Newsome
On Her Amazing
Friendship With
John Malkovich
Tawny Newsome has been on an incredible hot streak, but during her two-season stint on Netflix's "Space Force," she had the opportunity of working with some of the most iconic actors of our era, including the incomparable John Malkovich. In an exclusive interview with Looper, she spoke about her time on the series and what it was like working with Malkovich.
Newsome said, "John Malkovich is a wonderfully strange but kind man ... I like the fact that if I text John Malkovich, he suggests we get on the phone and have a phone call." Newsome admits it may go against her millennial image of never wanting to answer the phone, but when John Malkovich calls, you better believe you pick up the phone.
She went on to say, "You've never had a phone call until you have one with John Malkovich, especially one where you weren't expecting it. You thought you were sending a quick text, and then he responds, 'Why don't I call you?' And you're, 'Whoa, what am I in for here?' Because the answer is: some wildness for sure."
