With the release of Clifford the Big Red Dog, LRM Online’s Emmanuel Gomez spoke with both Darby Camp and Jack Whitehall. Camp tells us about her experience with working with a puppet on set and how their great job helped her imagine Clifford. Whitehall tells us a funny story about how he made the mistake of wanting to eat something whenever possible on onscreen. Something that came back to bite him when in certain scenes many takes were necessary. It was a fun conversation that you can check out down below!
Here is the synopsis for Clifford the Big Red Dog
When middle-schooler Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) meets a magical animal rescuer (John Cleese) who gifts her a little, red puppy, she never anticipated waking up to find a giant ten-foot hound in her small New York City apartment. While her single mom (Sienna Guillory) is away for business, Emily and her fun but impulsive uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) set out on an adventure that will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat as our heroes take a bite out of the Big Apple. Based on the beloved Scholastic book character, Clifford will teach the world how to love big!
