America Ferrera & Husband Ryan Piers Williams Talk Working Together at 'Meet The Actors' Session in NYC!

America Ferrera is all smiles before attending her Meet The Actors session for her new film X/Y during the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival at the Apple Store Soho on Wednesday evening (April 23) in New York City.

The 30-year-old actress was joined at the event by her co-star Jon Paul Phillips, producer Kwesi Collisson, and director Ryan Piers Williams, who is also her husband.

America and Ryan, 32, opened up about working together in X/Y.

“It’s a very unique experience. It really is amazing to be able to work with somebody who knows your strengths, knows your weaknesses and is there, ultimately, to support you,” Ryan expressed (via The Huffington Post). “To be able to be that for each other in life and then to be able to carry that into work is incredible.”

“And for me, it makes the space feel even safer. Our characters are a bit at odds in the film and its a dark, kind of scary place to go,” America added. “But I think, as partners, we had to band together even stronger to really get through the day-to-day hustle of guerrilla filmmaking! So even though on camera we were facing a lot of conflict, in real-life, we really needed each other’s support. And so it was great and strengthening and we have a shared love for what we do, so it’s great to do it together.”

FYI: America is wearing a Narciso Rodriguez dress, Jimmy Choo shoes and clutch, and Margiela for Swarovski earrings and ring.
