Will Poulter Felt The Pressure In Playing A Real Person For 'The Revenant'

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.

The 22-year-old actor was joined by Game of Thrones stars Maisie Williams and Isaac Hempstead-Wright.

“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.
