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."

Earlier this week, Kitsch commented on his commitment to his part even further, as previously reported by BroadwayWorld here.
