TDKR Weekend Interview Round-up

The Dark Knight Rises


Two different interview posted over the weekend related to the actors in The Dark Knight Rises. We will round up the the two interviews and pick out the best info.


First up, is an interview with Joey King. The young child actor's role is unknown in The Dark Knight Rises, but that doesn't mean people will not try to pry out information about the film. TeenSpot.com posted an interview with King about a variety of things related to The Dark Knight Rises.


Joey KingTeenSpot: What was the experience like working on The Dark Knight Rises?


Joey King: Working on The Dark Knight Rises was so cool. I got to travel to different places that I have never been to before. I got to go to India, I got to go to London. Christopher Nolan is awesome, so is Christian Bale.


TeenSpot: How does Christopher Nolan compare and differ from other directors?


Joey King: Christopher Nolan is so cool because he can take the smallest thing in a scene and change it and it makes the world of difference. He just knows what to do. He’s so experienced and so amazing. The same thing with Sam Rami, he’s also amazing. He asks our input to see what we feel and what is real with our lines and our characters. It just adds something. If you have a director like that you know the film is going to be good because he cares about your opinion and you’re not just saying lines – you’re speaking your voice and saying things that feel real. The same with Christopher Nolan, they’re both brilliant, amazing directors! It’s just a pleasure to work with both of them.


Tom HardyThe other interview was conducted with Tom Hardy over at The Daily Mirror. A couple of quotes were of interest that Hardy mentioned.


Batman is such an amazing ­franchise that I honestly feel ­overwhelmingly privileged to be a part of it.

It’s such an amazing cast to work alongside, they are all so ­talented. I loved being able to play a baddie and, coming from East Sheen in South-West London, that doesn’t come easily to me. I actually had to work on not being very nice. I’m genuinely a nice guy.

I’m not even thinking about how it’s ­going to blow up for me after Batman. I’m just going to ­enjoy it and I’m still going to be buying a pint of milk by ­myself at the corner shop.


The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20, 2012.
