Fans of Nat Wolff were surprised when he joined the cast of ‘The Dance of Death’ as Lloyd Henreid, a mind-blowing criminal who becomes the right-hand man of villainous Randall Flag (Alexander Skarsgård).
Used to playing romantic and laid-back characters, Wolff told Comic Book he’s been fascinated with Henreid’s play ever since he read the novel that spawned the series.
“For me it’s fascinating to play someone who’s not just an evil henchman, but a lost soul whose weakness has been dominated by Randall Flagg. Lloyd reminds me of those people you see in a documentary, you know? This follower of a cult leader … He looks like a normal person on the outside, but his inside is completely damaged. I think he’s not bad, but he did so many bad things with him that he ended up like this [maluco]. I feel lucky to play him because he’s always been my favorite character in the book.
“I am a huge Stephen King fan. I first read this book when I was in high school.[O diretor] Josh Boone called me when I was about 18 and told me his idea… As these projects take a long time to start, we got a lot older, but now I got the chance to play my character. prefer.
