‘IT HURTS WHEN I’M CAST IN OLDER ROLES’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - HT City | Time Out -

English ac­tor Do­minic West (right) was taken aback when he found out that the cre­ators of the sci­ence-fic­tion film Tomb Raider wanted to cast him as the pro­tag­o­nist, Lara Croft’s fa­ther. In fact, this isn’t the first time that the ac­tor has es­sayed older roles, and not the lead role— Money Mon­ster (2016) and The Awak­en­ing, to name a few. The ac­tor ad­mits that he feels up­set when he isn’t cast in lead roles.

“It does hurt and any­one who says it doesn’t is ly­ing,” he says. West says he was unim­pressed about his char­ac­ter arc in Tomb Raider at first, but he is now happy the way di­rec­tor Roar Uthaug has re­shaped the film.
