Tenet’s Kenneth Branagh Reveals What Christopher Nolan Expects From His Terrifying Villain Role

Tenet’s Kenneth Branagh Reveals What Christopher Nolan Expects From His Terrifying Villain Role

Fans were getting very impatient after the official release date of Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated movie Tenet. As fans try to learn more about the player’s characters, Kenneth Branagh sheds light on his extremely villain role.

Following the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Warner Bros. delayed the official opening of Tenet. But due to Christopher Nolan’s request for a traditional opening, the film will be released overseas firstly.

During a recent interview with ‘The Irish Times,’ Kenneth Branagh showed that he cared about this movie by saying that he read the script of the film than any other project in his career.

Talking about the details of the movie, he explains what Christopher Nolan expects from him for the ultra-cool villain. Nolan told him that the character has to be unremittingly evil.

Here’s what Branagh stated:

“It was darker than anything I’ve ever played. Chris does his homework, so he knew what I had done before and what he didn’t want from me. He kept saying: ‘You know this character has to be unremittingly evil?’ Until finally, on the last day he said, regarding your character and the darkness? You really understood the memo.”

The 59-year-old actor said that he had seen himself thinking on set twice when he started his career; these two happened on Nolan’s Tenet set. He continued:

“The sense of scale here, even on the page, is something else. It plays as a bang-up entertainment, but there’s a tonne more to it. Even with Dunkirk, and the scale of that, I was aware of my character’s relatively contained storyline.

This the fabric of the script weaves in so many characters across so many countries and layers of plot and meaning. The conceit is really bold. It’s one of those things that’s almost unique to Chris Nolan. It’s a massive, action-packed blockbuster that reads like a really personal movie with intellectual dazzle.”
