In these two edited segments from 24 Action News broadcasts for Austin’s KVUE-TV, Roy Faires interviews the cast of A Cry in the Dark (1988). The first segment is Faires’ interview with actress Meryl Streep about her role in the film, for which she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Streep discusses the challenges in portraying an actual person, as opposed to a fictional character, and what drew her to the story. In the second segment, Faires sits down with actor Sam Neill to talk about his role in the film. Neill discusses his feelings about how the movie influenced him personally. Faires worked as a special project director and entertainment critic/reporter at KVUE-TV, Austin’s ABC affiliate, from 1976-1989.
