-- FLORENCE, S.C. (November 24, 2006) — Actress Liv Tyler says when she first saw the title of the script for her new film, “The Strangers,” she thought it was a comedy.
Turns out it was a thriller about a couple trying to survive when three masked strangers invade their home.
“I had stacks of scripts on the plane,” she told the Morning News for Thursday’s editions. “I liked the title of this one because it sounded like a comedy. After reading the first three pages, I was stuck on the script and called my agent and said ?Please get it for me. I want to be in this movie.’ “
She has been in Florence making “The Strangers,” costarring Scott Speedman, since Oct. 10. Filming is expected to be finished Dec. 4 and the film is scheduled for release next October.
Tyler took last year off after the birth of her first child, Milo, with husband, Royston Langdon. She said she returned to acting because her time off made her realize how much she liked her work.
Calling it a “reflective period,” Tyler said, “That year off helped me realize I love what I do.”
Tyler, daughter of Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler, played the elf princess Arwen in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. Her screen credits also include “Jersey Girl” and “Armageddon.”
