Daniel Sharman Shares How He Bulked Up for 'Immortals'
Here’s what the 25-year-old Immortals actor had to share with the mag, which named him one of the Breakout Stars of Winter:
On transitioning from stage acting to the big screen: “I found acting on film very difficult. I found it really kinda odd and unnatural. Then I became obsessed with trying to get it right. I am hugely competitive.”
On his Immortals audition: “I had just finished a stage show in London playing a herion addict. I’d lost a lot of weight and when I arrived in L.A. for a few meetings my managers were like ‘What the f—’s happened to you?’ [Director] Tarsem Singh said, ‘You are probably too skinny for it but I love what you did with it, come back and do it again.’ For a week I ate protein bars, stuffed my face, went to the gym all seven days and I even took weights with me to the next audition and pumped up right before I went in. They showed me the tape and it’s a remarkable change. It’s amazing what 700 protein bars can do in a week, I’ll tell you that.”
