Taylor Kitsch Reveals He Was 'Scared' To Do THE NORMAL HEART Movie
Big screen star Taylor Kitsch physically transformed and lost thirty pounds to play a central role in the eagerly awaited HBO film adaptation of Larry Kramer's seminal AIDS-era drama THE NORMAL HEART and he discusses his reticence to take on the project as part of a revealing new interview.
Playing the role of a closeted gay man in the '80s period-set, Ryan Murphy-directed film, Kitsch reveals, "It scared me to do it."
Furthermore, he adds, "It was a big challenge."
In preparing for the difficult part, Kitsch reportedly studied with acting teacher Sheila Gray, as well.
Discussing his dedication to acting in general - and also newfound interest, directing - Kitsch opines, "I just want to be a part of storytelling - whether it's behind or in front of the camera. I love putting the weird sh*t in my head out there, and seeing if it works."
As for what's next, Kitsch says he plans to "ride the wave of LONE Survivor and THE NORMAL HEART."
