Will Poulter suits up for the premiere of his new film, The Revenant, held at Empire Leicester Square on Thursday night (January 14) in London.
“It’s always a real honor when you get to portray someone who really existed, and obviously Jim went on to become such a noteworthy frontiersmen, so that added a little additional pressure for me,” Will told Hunger magazine about taking on the role of a real person.
He added, “There was definitely an additional sense of responsibility to get the basics right. But beyond basic facts about Jim – his age at the time, how he fitted into the story – for me and it was just about identifying with the human aspects of the character, just being a person on that environment. With Jim it was about zoning in on that transitional period between being a boy and becoming a man, and it just so happens to coincide with the most horrendous and difficult ordeal of his life.”
FYI: Maisie wore Jimmy Choo shoes and a Kate Spade New York bag.
