Lupita Nyong’o and Joseph Quinn Open Up About Their Instant Connection on A Quiet Place: Day One Set


Lupita Nyong’o and Joseph Quinn step into the chilling world of the A Quiet Place franchise, known for its gripping suspense and cathartic horror experiences. As the franchise continues to terrify audiences with its sound-sensitive aliens, the latest instalment, A Quiet Place: Day One, takes us back in time to explore the origins of this otherworldly threat.

With Lupita and Joseph leading the charge, both actors are no strangers to the monster and horror genre. Lupita, hailed as our scream queen, wowed us in Jordan Peele’s Us (2019), while Joseph battled monsters in Stranger Things season four. So, when two talented actors share the screen, their chemistry can either make or break the story. However, in A Quiet Place: Day One, Lupita and Joseph exemplify this synergy.

In a recent chat with POPSUGAR Australia, they opened up about their initial impressions of each other, revealing a mutual respect and admiration that set the stage for their collaboration.


Lupita Nyong’o and Joseph Quinn’s First Impressions of Each Other

“My first impression of Joe was he had this intensity about the way in which he approached his work was full-bodied,” Lupita shared. “He was focused, he had a great work ethic, he showed up to show out and he was also extremely generous and present and courteous in the process, as well. I knew instantly that we were gonna be just fine.”

For Joseph, the experience was equally profound but tinged with a hint of nerves.

“I was very nervous to meet Lupita, obviously, ‘cause I’ve been an admirer of her work for many years and was very excited about the prospect of collaborating with her,” he explained. “When I first met her, I met a very kind, powerful, focused person.”


Reflecting on his admiration for Lupita’s career, Joseph noted, “It’s very weird when you get to work with someone you admire like that because you have so many preconceived ideas and almost a mythology around them, if I’m honest.”

He continued, “I remember watching her in 12 Years A Slave and just being dumbfounded at that level of talent. So being confronted with it and having to keep up with it was daunting. But, she’s a very disarming, wonderful woman, so she was able to make me feel at ease very quickly. From there, it’s just been snowballing.”

Their Chemistry Is Undeniable On and Off Screen

In the gripping world of A Quiet Place: Day One, Lupita and Joseph elevate the franchise’s chilling narrative. As the prequel reveals the alien threat’s origins, their chemistry as Samira and Eric adds raw authenticity to their roles.
