The ‘Color out of Space’ film appears to have it all in the actress’s experiences. Richardson had been feeling sick as she read through the script. Fevers were all she felt and, in some way, did not get it. However, she thought what a fascinating actor Nick was and decided to reach out to the director. The ‘Island of Dr. Moreau’ in which he was involved was what stirred her up. After watching the documentary, Richardson only reaffirmed what a great guy he was. She had listened to numerous voices, and his voice nailed it about his integrity.
