Effectively, rather a lot. It was an fascinating prep interval, for Luke. Once they provided it to me, I watched a bunch of documentaries. Then I assumed, "No, no, no, this is not the correct manner. I do not need to play an addict, as a result of these are individuals." Enjoying Luke was not about taking part in a heroin addict. It was about taking part in somebody that had been so deeply traumatized that he had no alternative however to finish up on this place, and that it wasn't his fault. Nobody fucking wakes up one morning and goes, "I do know what I need to do.”

Let’s keep within the horror realm with The Invisible Man. It’s superb how a lot I felt not simply that there is a presence within the room with [Elisabeth Moss’s] Cecilia, however that it's particularly Adrian — it nonetheless appeared like you even once you're not on display. As a result of it’s not all the time simply particular results or a stand-in: you had been there!

In that horny inexperienced go well with, yep. Lizzie is such an unbelievable expertise and I simply needed to help that as a lot as I may. I imply, she's greater than able to doing it with out me, nevertheless it simply felt like the correct factor to do all of the stuff that I may do. I imply, among the stuff had been [stunt performers] doing it. I am glad that you just say that: we did need this fixed looming menace, so I am glad that it is achieved.

However that horny inexperienced go well with was horrific. By no means ever say sure to inexperienced spandex. Ever.

You probably did the same factor on The Haunting Of Bly Manor, within the scenes the place Miles [Benjamin Evan Ainsworth] is possessed by your character, Peter. Do you ever get stressed working with kids, significantly on one thing that scary?

I believe there's all the time a priority when you find yourself working with children: you don't need them uncovered to something. Ben and Amelie [Bea Smith, who plays Miles’s sister Flora] had been simply so unbelievable, and their mothers had been with them the entire time. We tried to make their expertise as uplifting and as enjoyable as potential. However with Ben, I'd sit on set with him, and I'd do the scene, after which he would copy what I did. Then I'd simply sit by the monitor, in his eye line. I imply, children at that age, they're such good mimics, what I imply?

Apparently I like to do stuff like that offscreen. Possibly I should not be an actor. It felt very, crucial for the story, as with Invisible Man. Whether or not or not individuals will discover that, I do not care, however I really feel like all this trivialities hopefully provides as much as one thing in the long run.

Once I was going again by means of your older press, it was not possible to not discover the dates on all these items about The Invisible Man: it actually was the final massive film to come back out pre-COVID, and your first massive splashy Hollywood film. What was it like so that you can have the film and lockdown occur proper on high of one another?
