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.
