5 songs that Anne with an E star Amybeth McNulty plays to make her cry on set
Need a good cry (whether or not you're getting ready to shoot an emotional TV scene)? Look no further
Admit it...you've made a playlist of sad songs for those days when you need a good cry. Whether it's power ballads, soulful country tunes, breakup songs, opera arias, sad metal or a mixed bag of the aforementioned tear-jerkers, we all have one.
Actor Amybeth McNulty was brave enough to share her sad playlist with us. But as the star of Anne with an E (she plays the spirited Anne Shirley-Cuthbert), she has a good reason for her playlist. The award-nominated actor uses music to help her bring emotion to her more poignant scenes.
Watch the video:
She explains: "The mentality to get into more emotional scenes can be very difficult to hit correctly. I have a particular sad song playlist for Anne in particular to get in into her headspace."
In this video, McNulty — a talented singer herself whose stage performances include roles in The Sound of Music, Annie and Les Misérables — takes us through her sad playlist, a.k.a. "Tractors."
I feel like I've just let you have a piece of my soul!- Amybeth McNulty
