Flora & Ulysses: Ben Schwartz & Matilda Lawler

.

“It’s easier to draw a superhero, than to be one.” — George Buckman

Just one of the many lines that stands out in the Newbery Award-Winning book turned Disney+ movie FLORA & ULYSSES. Ben Schwartz stars as the comic book writer with creative block alongside Matilda Lawler who plays his daughter, Flora.

We talked about failures, pushing through writer’s block, the father-daughter relationship and of course, acting opposite a superhero squirrel.
