The actor wasn’t supposed to be on set that day but came to help the actress film a small scene
Willem Dafoe has always stood out for being a very committed actor, in this case he attended the shoots without having a call just to help his co-star, Emma Stone to film a scene from AND in which he received more than 20 slaps, the curious thing is that in this scene the actor does not come into view.
Dafoe felt this would be a good way to break the ice and get in person with Stone, no matter what it entailed, which was applauded by Yorgos Lanthimos who said «This is what you want from actors. who want to be part of your project in any way”.
poor things is the new production by Yorgos Lanthimos, a film based on a 1992 novel of the same name by Alasdair Gray. It tells the story of a pregnant woman who commits suicide at the 8th month and is kept alive by substituting her brain for the baby’s.
On the other hand, no further details have yet been revealed about AND and its plot, but it is known that it stars Dafoe and Stone alongside Jesse Plemons (the power of the dog), Joe Alwyn (Harriet), Margaret Qualley (The assistant) and Hong Chau (The whale).
