Kenneth Branagh Gives Insight Into 'Tenet' & His Character

Kenneth Branagh is one of the stars of the upcoming Christopher Nolan movie Tenet and it seems he was just as confused by the film’s plot as his co-stars.

Robert has said that he had no idea what was happening in the movie while they were filming it.

Kenneth said that he had to read the script more times than he’s read any other script before.

“I kid you not, I read this screenplay more times than I have ever read any other thing I have ever worked on,” he told Total Film (via Syfy). “It was like doing the Times crossword puzzle every day, I would imagine. Except the film and the screenplay didn’t expect you, or need you, to be an expert.”

Kenneth was asked if he plays the antagonist in the movie and he said, “Given the nature of it, as Chris to some extent sort of reinvents the wheel here, a lot of people start engaging with John David Washington‘s character in both expected ways…so you might expect me to be an antagonist…but then [the story] doesn’t quite follow what you might expect as the story plays out.”

The movie is going to keep fans guessing about the character throughout the film.

“In the playing of it, and in the scenes, he keeps upturning, or playing forward and backward, our expectations of what the character should be,” he said. “So my conversations with [Nolan] about my character were constant, because the character’s evolution was not set. It was a series of constant surprises.”
