During his appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Chris teased his next film and said that he was actually “scared” about taking it on.

“Often I get a script and I know from the first read, the second read, I know who the character is and I get an instant, sort of, visceral feeling attached to it, like, ‘Alright, I’ve got it.’” he said. “This I had read two years before I started shooting and was in awe of the script. It was the most beautiful thing I’ve read. I love George Miller — but I didn’t know who this character was.”

Chris added that him finally getting who the character was didn’t happen until about two weeks before they started shooting.

“We did about four weeks of rehearsals, and we started digging in and diving into it, and things started coming to me. And then, about two weeks prior to shooting, something clicked,” he shared. “I went, ‘Ooh! Ooh. I think that’s who it is. I think that’s how he moves.’ But, in the buildup, and I’m talking a couple years, I was scared out of my mind. I’m like, ‘I’m gonna derail one of the most iconic franchises.’ I’m gonna bring down Mad Max. It’s gonna be my fault.”

Chris then said that he was exicted about the movie, saying that filming was “the best experience of my career” to date and “something I’m the most proud of, too.”
