The 53-300 and sixty five days-outdated actor starred in Christopher Nolan’s 2000 neo-noir psychological thriller as a particular person with anterograde amnesia (the incapacity to do novel recollections) and Guy wonders if he would possess given a honest better efficiency if he didn’t receive the elephantine script sooner than capturing.
He instructed The Hollywood Reporter: “It will in fact be advantageous. When I did that movie, I spent two weeks with Chris Nolan doing a bit of rehearsal. A selection of actors would are available in and we’d discuss by scenes and merely are attempting to realize what every scene was about and get a device of it. And then I needed to neglect all of that. I needed to position all that down and merely be conscious that, in the shatter, Leonard in actuality easiest exists in a 10-minute bubble and then forgets what took region sooner than and doesn’t in actuality know what’s coming next. So as to possess performed the movie in the formulation that you suggest could well want in fact been advantageous attributable to it in actuality felt to me, in a formulation, that I could well furthermore merely let all that stuff lunge and kind out every scene adore its possess little comedy sketch. After I study the script the first time, attributable to Chris’ writing is so swish, I in actuality felt a connection to the inner emotionality of Leonard that I presumably could well furthermore’ve began capturing the next day.”
Then all once more, he admitted that he is now not particular if that would possess worked for him 21 years in the past as he was much less steady about his acting talents.
Guy explained: “Having talked about that, I’d be more in a position to doing that now, as a 53-300 and sixty five days-outdated, than I would’ve been motivate then when I was 30 or nonetheless outdated I was when I made the movie. I was more afraid as an actor motivate then, and I presumably would’ve been device more anxious about doing it each day — without keen what the relaxation of the script was about — than I would in 2021.”
