NYGossipGirl recently caught up with David Thewlis at the World Premiere of his new film War Horse. The film follows a young man named Albert, who enlists to service in WWI after his beloved horse, Joey, is sold to cavalry.
Thewlis, who’s known for his role as Lupin in Harry Potter talked about his character in War Horse and his upcoming projects.
NYGG: So can you tell me about your character and what attracted you to the role?
Thewlis: I’m the landlord [laughs]. The villain. I like playing the villain and really it all began with Steven Spielberg. It was an honor.
NYGG: How is this film different then past ones you have done before?
Thewlis: Well it’s enormously different than anything I have done before. Every film is totally different. Everything I do is totally different.
NYGG: Are you currently working on any new projects?
Thewlis: I have a film with Luc Besson called The Lady about the democratic pioneer of Burma.
NYGG: And you’ve worked with so many actors and directors in the past. Is there someone that you haven’t worked with that you want to?
Thewlis: I would love to work with Scorsese, The Coen brothers again in a bigger part. There’s loads. Yeah, loads.
