During an online roundtable interview with actor Henry Golding, the man playing the titular character of Snake Eyes shared his experience working alongside such a talented cast, sharing the screen with action stars, and bringing his character to life.
For Golding, the biggest challenge in filming the intense fight scenes was the physical demand.
“You really need to know that choreography down to a tee for the safety, not only for yourself, but also the other stunt crew,” he explained.
Making the characters of this film as complex as humanly possible was important in bringing the personality and characteristics of the mysterious ninja.
“In the beginning of the movie, you see him pretty much at his lowest. And you understand why he is in that position and what motivates him to do what he does. Is it the right thing? Who knows?” Golding elaborated. “But for him it is his North Star, and perhaps that North Star isn’t the right thing to aim for and so through his journey with Storm Shadow and the Arashikage, he learns the way of being the person that he should be.”
The film opens in theaters and arrives on July 23, 2021. Check out the new trailer for the film below.
