SCARY SKARSGÅRD ‘I’ll do kids’ parties’
BILL SKARSGÅRD’S TAKING HIS CREEPY ROLE WAY TOO SERIOUSLY
Swedish actor Bill Skarsgård is scaring moviegoers senseless in the reimagining of Stephen King’s 1986 novel It. And the 27-year-old is loving it!
How do you feel about being the source of people’s nightmares? It’s very different from who I am, so it’s something I’ve loved doing. Will scaredy-cats be able to watch? It’s more than just a scary movie. People are going to be surprised by how emotionally invested they’ll get. What flick freaked you out as a kid? Jurassic Park. I was five or six [and watched it with] my brother Gustaf. Any concerns about making life extra hard for working clowns? Maybe they should just start doing seasonal work for Halloween. Reinvent the industry. Would you consider birthday parties if the acting career didn’t work out? Maybe that will be my go-to gig. [Laughs]
Talk about a makeover! Bill’s Pennywise transformation took over two hours each day
