Castle Rock star Bill Skarsgård is featured in the July 2018 issue of GQ Magazine.
From the digital issue:
Not long after playing the child-eating psycho clown Pennywise in last year’s remake of It, Bill Skarsgård found himself in a nightmare of his own: fame. “I think it’s easy for people to think of celebrity as something attractive. That aspect of it scares the shit out of me,” says the 27-year-old.
The Swedish actor appeared in Deadpool 2, stars in Hulu’s Stephen King-inspired Castle Rock and has a small role in September’s feminist revenge fantasy Assassination Nation. In terms of acting, he finds a quiet confidence in acknowledging that he is only, in his words, “pretty good.”
He has an idea to being some anonymity back into his life. The plan? To run away from it all. “I’m going to Japan.” He’s joking. We hope.
Castle Rock airs Wednesdays on Hulu.
