Alba took violin lessons and followed blind musician for new roleJanuary 29th, 2008 - 4:02 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Jan 29 (ANI): Jessica Alba left no stone unturned to play a blind violinist in new horror movie The Eye, as the actress took music lessons and followed a blind woman around New York for days.
The pregnant star confessed that playing blind was easier than picking up an instrument because she’s far from musically inclined.
“I started taking violin lessons pretty consistently, starting with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - which I don’t think I could even play that well, still, Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
“And then I hung out with a girl who is a musician for a living. She’s lived all over the world by herself and she’s been blind since she was three.
“I had different notions of what it would be like to be blind and how people conduct themselves and she kind of threw all that out the window.
I picked up with how she interacts with people and how she gets around the world; how she walks down the street counting steps and how she opens doors. She moved around her landscape with such ease, she’s very graceful, she added. (ANI)
