In the tradition of Amblin classics where fantastical events occur in the most unexpected places, Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, and Kyle MacLachlan star in The House with a Clock in Its Walls, from Amblin Entertainment. The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart.  But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead. Learn more about Kyle MacLachlan and his journey to acting. 

Where did you go to school and what was your major?

I attended the University of Washington in Seattle from 1977-1982. I received a BFA in Acting.

How did your experience in college guide your career?

I found my career at college. The University offered a Professional Actors Training Program for both MFA/BFA degrees. I stumbled into it and once there, I never let go.

Did your education prepare you for your career as an actor?

I was trained to work as an actor for repertory theater at college. Three years of intensive acting training, so yes, the training was specifically geared to get us working professionally in the theater.

What was your favorite movie when you were in college?

Movies for me were an escape from the intensity of the training. I enjoyed The Three and Four Musketeers (Richard Lesters version from 1973), Das Boot, Mad Max and The Road Warrior, Apocalypse Now.

What were the most magical parts of your college experience?

I loved every minute of my training. It was a completely immersive experience. There was only 13 members of my class and we were like a family.

If you could have any magical power what would it be?

If I had a magical power, I would time travel.

Would you rather play a villain or a hero?

I like the idea of playing an heroic villain or a dark hero.

If you could give advice to any student pursuing acting what would it be?

Find a teacher you can trust. Hone your instincts as an actor because that is your most valuable tool. Process criticism without judgement (this is not easy). What you feel is important, but not as important as what your audience experiences.

See Kyle MacLachlan in The House with a Clock in Its Walls September 21st in theaters!
