“I think about Lindsay [Edward Snowden’s Girlfriend] every day, and we wrapped this movie over a year ago. She’s a real person, living through this story now. She’s been in love with someone for over a decade, accepting he’s part of the Nsa and not able to tell her things. Then he says he’s going on a business trip for a few days, and she finds out that the love of her life is plastered all over TV. She had to deal with the fallout. The fine balance between being so proud of him – and these are my words, not hers – but also feeling so much confusion and hurt. He’s not allowed back in the States; she now has to choose [whether] to live in her country, or live in Russia [with him]. Her life has changed dramatically because of a decision he made for the country. Her boyfriend is a wanted man, and now newscasters are knocking on her door every day. Lindsay was a yoga and pole-dance instructor, and [the press] tore her apart [saying]: ‘Edward Snowden’s girlfriend is a stripper’. She was a fitness coach, At least when you’re an actor, you expect that kind of reporting, but she never signed up for it.” – Shailene about Edward Snowden’s girlfriend, whom she plays in the Snowden biographical political movie, in cinemas now.
