Kyle MacLachlan had this to say on what it was like to play such a compassionate and understanding father in Giant Little Ones:
“I think all parents strive for some version of that with their children. I’m old and maybe a little naïve, but it’s something that I think is essential. You’ve been entrusted with the lives of your children, so parenting is not something you should take lightly.”
“It’s a full-time job, and we’re here to guide and to help. That’s the way I look at it and my opinion, but you’re supposed to guide and help and encourage. It’s not discipline so much as it’s just trying to understand, and help them understand, why one choice may be better than the other.”
“It’s more of a nudging, as opposed to a pushing and shoving into something. I’m taking my lessons from my father. He was a little more gentle in his approach. When it looked like I was heading into the acting profession, he was like, “Okay.” He recognized that it was something I loved and that I was actually good at.”
“You always want the best for your kids. You want them to be able to support themselves and be in situations where they can thrive. He felt like that was happening with me, so I took that as my lesson. Then, along comes a role where that’s also part of the dad’s makeup, so it worked.”
