Oscar stars in the upcoming movie X-Men: Apocalypse as the title villain. He recently opened up to Buzzfeed about playing the role.
“For me, I’m a huge fan. I was a huge fan, particularly of Apocalypse, since I was a kid. So I feel like since I’m getting the shot to do it, then I can just follow my own discretion because of that,” Oscar said. “And sometimes, what’s fun to do is play against what people would expect, or what people would want you to do, because it is a different medium. To a certain extent, we are embodying certain things that are kind of mythical. If you look at Apocalypse, if you actually were to do or speak in the way that it seems like he should, it would probably be laughable. It doesn’t work, I don’t think, in this medium.”
