Hardy’s chal­lenge of play­ing Kray twins

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Ac­tor Tom Hardy, who has in the movie Leg­end es­sayed the in­fa­mous Kray twins—a no­to­ri­ous crim­i­nal duo in Lon­don ac­tive in the 1950s and 1960s—has spo­ken about the twin chal­lenge he faced while film­ing the scenes. “What­ever I laid down in the morn­ing, I had to lit­er­ally fol­low in the af­ter­noon with the other char­ac­ter,” Hardy told ew.com. He spoke about the chal­lenges of chang­ing into the roles of both the twins Ron­ald “Ron­nie” Kray and Regi­nald “Reg­gie” Kray. “You re­alise that, if I’m play­ing Reg­gie at the top of the day, and I’m slap­ping Ron, Reg­gie’s got rings on, I’m go­ing to have to go back in, and shoot the Ron side of it. If I’ve thrown a hard slap as Reg­gie, then I’m go­ing to re­ceive as Ron, a hard slap from Reg­gie. I’m get­ting twice the beat­ing,” he said.
