Favorite Leo from Titanic shares memories of filming with DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio's hero Jack Dawson called little Bark his best girl, although he preferred dancing with Rose. Now the actress who played the baby is already over 20 - Alexandra Owens-Sarno has continued her acting career.

The girl said that Leo was very nice to her and behind the scenes, shared sandwiches and entertained between shots.

Do all your friends know that you were in such a famous film as a child?

Yes, almost everything. There are some with whom I have been friends since elementary school, and they directly remember how I went to the shooting. Since then, they have made fun of me all my life and called me at school “the girl from Titanic”.

What was it like? Did the students sing to you in the track “My Heart Will Go On”?

No, they usually just said they saw me on TV or called me Cora. Sometimes I was asked to bring a DVD with the film to school, so that everyone could watch scenes with me together.Once I was even asked to stand next to the screen, so that they could compare what I was then and what now.

Are you still recognized as a girl from the Titanic?

This was only after the release of the film. I was constantly recognized on the street, and it was very hard. People asked for my autograph, but when you are 8-9 years old, your reaction is something like this: “Who are you? I don’t talk to strangers! ”Then I was completely turned away from acting, but now I'm back in the saddle.

In recent years, only a couple of people have recognized me. Once we went with friends to a cafe, the waitress accepted the order, and then came back and said: “I have a very strange question for you,” and asked if I had starred in Titanic. Then she admitted: "Actually, I was going to come up and just tell you a phrase from the movie:" You're still my best girl, Cora, "but I was afraid to make a mistake and feel like an idiot." But I would like her to say just that.

Has anyone already tried to meet you like that?

No, I'm still waiting for that one.

How did you even get to the Titanic?

This was my first role. I lived in San Diego, and the film crew opened up additional casting in Mexico.My mother knew that I had dreamed of becoming an actress from the age of 4, so she took me and my 3-year-old sister there. At the casting, my mother began explaining the story of the Titanic to us, as everyone was drowning, and my sister began to cry! Just sob! She was so sad that so many people died. And at this very moment, the casting director of the film Mali Finn passed by. And so it turned out the character of the "crying girl", which the hero Billy Zane (fiance Rose) takes with him into the lifeboat. Mali simply said: “Put this costume on this girl and put her in the boat!” And my mother took her and went to try the role.

And Mali asked me if I would like to audition. I wanted and got in line for 10 blond girls - because they wanted to take the blonde - and I wanted to be the last, because I was very worried. But there I had to say just a couple of lines and dance a little, that's all. As a result, my sister did not pass - she was crying too much, and my mother was called about in a few weeks. I remember how I screamed, ran through the house from happiness like a little maniac.

How was the shooting?

It was awesome. At first it was strange, because I was little and did not fully understand what was happening. But everyone was very nice with me, and I just did what I was told.

One of my first scenes was to sit on a bench with Leonardo DiCaprio and draw in his album. Then, according to the script, he sees Rose, my “father” comes up and says: “Well, okay, tell Uncle Jack“ goodbye ”- but this scene was then cut out, although we shot it for 3 hours - we just sat and painted with Leo peace and rain God cried - very strange memories.

Do you have those pictures left?

The fact is that there was another picture when Leo drew me with my father as we looked at the ocean. But then someone stole this drawing from our trailer on the set.

What is Leo himself behind the camera lenses?

It really was a lot from his hero Jack Dawson. He was very sweet and charming, always smiling. I did not notice anything stellar in him. I just thought it was my new friend. Kate also often approached us, played with my sister - and Leo ran and tickled her.

After the film, when Leo began to appear on the covers of all magazines, I began to understand his fame. I was like a little snob and said: “I know him!”. And all: “We know that you know! Shut up! ”Once I even invited Leo to come with me to Halloween to play“ life or the wallet ”. He replied nicely that he would talk with his manager and see if it would work out. Did not work out.

Do we keep in touch with him now? Maybe repeat the invitation?

I do not support. And this is such a bummer. It is a pity that it happened.

Maybe Leo will read this interview and respond to your invitation 20 years later.
