Mireille Enos Talks Working With Sam Shepard on His Final Movie

The actress calls her 'Never Here' co-star "wildly intelligent" and a "really easy guy."

Never Here, the new psychological thriller from writer-director Camille Thoman, stars Mireille Enos (The Killing) as an installation artist who discovers some disturbing events through her photography that sends her down a spiral of suspicion. The pic is also the final film of acclaimed actor Sam Shepard, who died in July. 

Stopping by The Hollywood Reporter's offices for a candid conversation about the movie, Enos recalled what it was like working with Shepard. "He's just like a really easy guy," the actress said. "He was wildly intelligent."

She also mentioned that Shepard signed on to do Never Here because of the use of language in the script, something that he was always fascinated with during his tenure as a writer.

"I think one of the things that marks his career is how present he was in his life and he drew on the people around him," explained Enos. "He liked to look people square in the face — there was no kind of facade. There was no remove between his work and his self. It all came from his love of being alive."
