While working with Emma on the sidelines, he was willing and open to let her slap him as many times as she wanted to get into character, which is something she appreciated. “There’s this instinct to perform that many actors have — the ‘look at me, look at me!’ kind of performer,” Emma shared in the profile. “He’s the opposite of that.” Emma also thought that Willem‘s willingness to be slapped for a scene he wasn’t even part of, was a sign of times gone by. “Maybe it’s changed through the years,” she shared. “A lot of actors I bond with have been doing this for a long time, and you know they’ve gone from ‘I’ to ‘We.’” Director Yorgos Lanthimos added that his commitment to the role was exactly what he wants and looks for in his stars: “That’s what you want from actors.
