Luke Evans has been making the rounds promoting his new film High Rise where he co-stars with Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) and Sienna Miller (American Sniper).
The Ben Wheatley movie was premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and the stars have been meeting fans and talking to the press about the anti-capitalist indie film.
During an interview published in El Mundo, the Welsh actor confessed sex scenes are not his favorite.
“Doing sex scenes in front of the camera is very uncomfortable for me. Also, these sequences are hard on the technical staff. When I saw the movie for the first time, there were scenes I didn’t remember filming. I don’t know what Ben put in my coffee, but it worked.”
Sienna Miller (American Sniper) said she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work for Wheatley whom she called “one of the most stimulant directors with a unique, original script.”
Luke Evans adds his role was completely different than other offers he has received and Wheatley had enough faith in him to cast him as Richard Wilder, and he let the director exploit his limits.
High Rise, which has been well received by critics and is based on the 1975 novel of the same name by J.G. Ballard, tells the story of the residents of a skyscraper who face social injustices depending on where they live.
Luke Evans also spoke of spending a large portion of filming covered in blood for his scenes and how he finally gets to sing in a movie, a dream he’s had for many years.
I spent 20 days covered in blood, but I’m not complaining because I’m a professional.”
“I’ve been singing all my live. I’m from Wales, where you’re born singing. I spent 10-years doing musicals in London and I’ve waited a long time for a movie in which to display my musical talents.”
You can watch Luke Evans, Tom Hiddleston, and Sienna Miller in High Rise which his scheduled to come to the U.S. on September 26.
