'The Book Thief' stars Geoffrey Rush, Sophie NÃ©lisse come to 'GMA'
"The Book Thief" hit theaters in limited release on Nov. 8, and stars Geoffrey Rush and Sophie NÃ©lisse took to "Good Morning America" to discuss the World War II era film.
According to Rush, the movie was his chance to reconnect with his grandfather. "When I read the novel and I read the screenplay, I just remember him telling me this stories when I was 20 about when he was 20," he explains.
NÃ©lisse similarly like the opportunity to connect to the time of Nazi Germany. "I really wanted to do the movie also to learn a bit about what happened," she explains.
Still a relative unknown, NÃ©lisse admits to being a bit intimidated by working with Rush. But considering how well they got along on "GMA," it seems like they managed to get rid of that nervousness fairly quickly.
"It's a bit stressful to begin with because I'm scared he's going to think I'm bad," NÃ©lisse says with a laugh. "He was like my dad on the first day."
