How did this dream collaboration come together? “Honestly, I heard of BANNERS from the soundtrack for ‘The Royals.’ ‘The Royals’ is kind of my guilty pleasure,” Greene laughed. She continued, “One of my girlfriends ended up meeting him. Somehow or another, I had a barbecue and he was there. He was talking about all of his songs and we kind of got into a conversation about music videos.”
Greene said that the sound BANNERS creates reminds her of a very specific William Shakespeare play. “I felt this connection to his music. It was deep and romantic. His music, it sounds weird to say—kind of reminds me of ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ There was this push and pull,” she elaborated.
It was a no-brainer for Greene to sign on to this special project. “When BANNERS asked me if I was interested in being in a video, I said, ‘I’m so down.’ We got into concepts. At the time I was filming ‘Antiquities.’ It was about the loss of someone and the denial that my character Ellie was in. Andrew West was my co-star in both the music video and the film,” Greene said. The actress explained, “The music video and the song captures the essence of this beautiful and holy place where these two people find themselves. What we were trying to achieve throughout the video was this person, who essentially loses her other half, not wanting to let go. She had to go through the hard crash of reality that the person she loved is gone. She had to let him go to move on.”Read More
