Toni Collette is pre-occupied. Grinning, head down, she’s scrawling a letter on the table between us. It’s a “Remember me?” note to her green-card spouse, David Van Arkle, no less. Or rather, fellow Australian actor Daniel Lapaine, who starred opposite her as the South African pro-swimmer in beloved ’90s comedy Muriel’s Wedding. Through a bit of detective work (studying The EDIT’s call sheet the night before the shoot and peeking at photos dotted around today), Collette has deduced that, by incredible coincidence, we are shooting in Lapaine’s London home.
