metallica through the never


“There have been things that have ended that have torn through me like a death. If it’s something I have grown so close to, when it’s over it hurts, you know. I did a play once and I couldn’t talk about it for about three years without crying because it was like a death to me when it ended. That’s kind of what it’s like with these characters. It’s almost like getting a best friend and you learn everything about them and you learn how they work and you live with them and then this part of you dies and they go away.” - Dane DeHaan


“Silence is one of my favorite things in the world. I would prefer not to talk most of the time, and when I’m acting I think it’s really all about the silences anyway. It’s never really about what you’re saying. So the fact that I was given a job where I didn’t have to talk at all was really great.” — Dane DeHaan on his role as Trip in Metallica: Through The Never (2013)


Dane DeHaan + film sets

Dane had trained extensively. And with Dane, what he does is create a bible for the character and does tons of research before production. And then he burns it and starts really becoming the character on set.” - John Krokidas, Kill Your Darlings director
