We had heard multiple times from the cast of ‘IT‘ that Bill Skarsgard was scaring the kids on set for the film and that trend seems to be continuing over on the set of ‘IT Chapter 2.’ This time, it isn’t just the younger actors which he is terrifying but the adults as well! This fun detail came directly from James McAvoy who plays the adult version of Bill Denbrough in the movie.
McAvoy felt that he wasn’t the only one uncomfortable working with Pennywise and that the other cast felt the same way! When it comes to Skarsgard’s performance, McAvoy said:
“He’s amazing. The guy who plays the clown is terrifying. He’s a lovely guy, and yet he really freaked me out. I remember standing there with the rest of the cast, all these adults, and we’d all done weird freaky stuff. And we are all looking at each other going, ‘I don’t like being here. I don’t like being an actor today.’ He really did, he really freaked me out. I never liked clowns as a kid.”
While not enjoying clowns as a kid could have been a factor as to why McAvoy was freaked out, it looks like the other adults seemed to feel the same way.
