Clive Owen Has Never Played a Character Like His Role in 'Knick'
The 49-year-old actor promoted his new Cinemax show The Knick, which premieres tonight!
“A brilliant but very volatile character, a drug addict who’s struggling,” Clive told the Huffington Post about his character. “I don’t think I’ve played a character like him because he’s so unpredictable. He is a bit of a wild man. But he and his fellow surgeons were on a cusp of groundbreaking change in a number of areas. There’s a slight element throughout, that the characters are shooting from the hip a bit, testing things out. They were beginning travel to Europe to study and share discoveries. It was a very exciting time. On the other hand, it’s said one in four patients died after surgery at the time. And your eyes will open wide when you see the first open theater surgery scene.”
