Playing a wound-up lighthouse keeper left Pattinson feeling on edge
Working on Robert Eggers’ slow-boiling horror film “The Lighthouse” left Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson in two very different states of mind. The actors recently told TheWrap that while Dafoe was able to easily slip in and out of the role, Pattinson soon found himself as pent-up as his character.
“I was charged up at the end of every day, to be honest,” Pattinson told TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven at the Toronto Film Festival last month. “By the end of the day you’re keeping yourself…so wound up the whole time that by the end I wanted to go out clubbing. But there’s nowhere to go!”
