Gary Oldman Says Playing Winston Churchill in 'Darkest Hour' was his 'Hardest Job' Yet!

Gary Oldman Says Playing Winston Churchill in 'Darkest Hour' was his 'Hardest Job' Yet!

Gary Oldman happily poses alongside director Joe Wright while attending the Talking Pictures screening of The Darkest Hour held as part of the 2018 Palm Springs International Film Festival on Monday (January 3) in Palm Springs, Calif.

“This was the hardest job I’ve ever been on as an actor,” the 59-year-old actor recently expressed (via Straitstimes). “Initially, my concern was stamina because Churchill is in almost very scene and is the engine of every scene.”

“I was working every day, coming in four hours before everyone else and going through that process. My day was about 18 hours by the time I’d got home and had dinner,” Gary continued. “There are worse things than that in life, of course – I am not complaining – but all that was a concern for me. I wondered if my skin would hold up (under the prosthetics). Yet it was also a very freeing role.”

That same evening, Sam Rockwell attended a Talking Pictures screening of his latest film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
