Q & A with Grace Dove of The Revenant 3:26


The B.C. First Nations actor who plays Leonardo DiCaprio's wife in The Revenant says she had nothing but great experiences working opposite the acclaimed movie star. 

"It's crazy, obviously everyone's in love with Dicaprio, who wouldn't be?" Grace Dove said, laughing.

"I went in there not having too many expectations and I walked out the movie just like, 'Oh! he's really a wonderful guy, inside and out.'"

The film, recently released in theatres in Canada, is set in Montana and South Dakota but was filmed in parts of B.C.

Dove said she was on Commercial Drive in East Vancouver when she got the call from her agent confirming she had the part. 

"If people saw me they probably would have laughed because I'm sure I would have been dancing," she said.
