During Comic Con Seoul, Mads Mikkelsen, who is set to play a major role in Death Stranding, talked a bit about his experiences working on a game. He also confirmed that they aren’t done shooting yet, and he has to come back to do more scenes.
He was asked about his experiences regarding the difference between acting for film and for a video game.
“It’s very different. It’s enormously different. I mean, the scenes are very small, it’s a very physical approach, you have a lot of wires and cameras. You are in a green screen room and you do a lot of… It’s not dynamic in that sense, but he makes it dynamic, because we have to go through all kinds of facial expressions, all kinds of movements, so later on he can mold it to whatever he wants. So basically we give him all the tools, and then he can create whatever he wants later on.”
The host then asked him if he would want to do it again. Mads answered, laughing: ‘Yeah, I have to, because we’re not finished yet.’ He also added that he finds the super interesting, and that he thinks Hideo is a ‘fantastically inspiring man’. ‘His brain is working on a different level than anybody else, so I can’t wait to see what he’s doing with it.’
