There’s something to say about actors who lose an extreme amount of weight to play a role in a film. To become so thin that they look emaciated and close to dying, to be weak and irritable from the lack of food, and loosing whatever previous muscle tone they once had indicates an unflaggible dedication to their craft. To put their bodies on the line for the sake of realism so that we filmgoers can watch their deteroration happen before our eyes on the big screen and know that it’s quite possibly the only non artificial thing in the entire film shows a true passion for their art.
Just wanted to say that I was super happy that in the movie, they finally made Jubilee Asian, kept Storm Black and had actors that actually looked Egyptian and Arab play Egyptians! It’s sad that we are still having to congratulate casting directors for casting ethnically correct actors to non-white characters.
