The Weekend Australian - Review
FROM THE EDITOR
You probably recognise Bill Skarsgard from the gutter. And I mean that in the nicest possible way. The Swedish actor made his name as Pennywise, the creepy balloon-wielding clown who terrorises children (famously from a drain during a rainstorm) in the recent Netflix remake of Stephen King’s thriller It. But as Philippa Hawker reports in this issue, Skarsgard is coming out from behind the make-up. The actor is starring in a new film on Netflix called The Devil All the Time, a sinister movie that features some of the biggest names in the business. As Hawker writes on pages 8-9, Skarsgard is making big waves in Hollywood.
Also in this issue, on pages 6-7, music writer Andrew McMillen speaks to INXS legend Andrew Farriss, who has turned to a most unlikely musical genre: country. As John Feder’s pictures illustrate, the rock star singer-songwriter certainly has the right hat for it.
