So to have been invited to do so is a privilege. A lot of things, as an actor, you have to be asked to do. … [The Northman] is Robert eggershistory and vision. I hope to bring something to the equation, but I’m here to participate and contribute.
Of course, the Oscar-winning actress was also drawn to the role because of SkarsgÃ¥rd, who she was able to work with in season 1 of Big little lies. In the HBO series, he played the very abusive husband of Kidman’s Celeste, which means the two have had many intense physical and emotional scenes together.
“Alex was so fantastic working with him because he was so comfortable and open and available. It’s a roller coaster, their relationship. It’s a very, very difficult relationship to map out over seven hours,” red Mill star said Vulture in 2017, noting that she pushed for him to be chosen. âI wanted it! I wanted it badly. I was like, ‘Come on, please. Come on, HBO, we gotta have it. â¦ It’s a big role for him. It’s not what it seems, so he followed the spirit and he really captured it, I think. He’s obviously got this ability to pull you in and hold you back, and he’s breaking down, you know? He also has all this fragility for him – so this kind of domination and then this fragility; it’s a strange mixture.
Although the scenes were difficult to leave, the Emmy winner was delighted that Kidman would be his stage partner for the drama based on Liane Moriartythe novel of.
âIt was very important to reconnect after filming these scenes,â he said. Vanity Fair in 2017. âWe made a point of checking in with each other, giving each other a hug. Nicole is an amazing partner because she is so generous and so open and that makes it easier as an actress when you have a partner like that.
