Luke Baines Is the Boy In The Photographs for 'Bello' Mag
The English actor stars in the new horror film The Girl in the Photographs, which was just put in limited release. Here is what he had to share with the mag:
On what makes his movie special: “Well, I think the reason why it’s different and worth watching and special is because it’s not your average horror film. There is a large portion of this movie that is a hilarious comedy, because the writing is so brilliant and we’ve got some really great actors. That’s one of my favorite things about it. You’re in this world where you’re laughing and it’s fun and it’s got really great jokes, and before you even realize it someone’s getting stabbed in the back of the head. Even though I was a part of the film, watching it for the first time, I was shocked. It goes back to what I said earlier about crafting an atmosphere and then shaking things up. I think people will be surprised at how funny it is in a way that it’s not satire, rather comedic writing that allows that to happen. During the table read, Wes said, this script is the best that I’ve read since Scream, and the most like it in the sense that you’re laughing and you’re crying and you don’t know what’s going on. Then it’s over and you need to shower.”
On the opportunity to be in the film and work with producer Wes Craven: “I’d been such a fan of Wes’ work for so long. Even when the appointment came through my agent saying that I had an audition for this, I was like – there’s no way. I’m not even going to give it any thought, there’s just no f–king way. This is my ideal role. I’m always fascinated by these kind of people. I got it, and still didn’t quite believe it. Then we had the table read with Wes and that was the first point where it became real. You could feel it around the cast. ‘Okay, this just got real.’ You know?”
FYI: Luke is wearing an AllSaints cardigan, shirt, jeans and coat in the shoot.
