British actor of Indian descent Dev Patel identified with “Gawain,” his character in “The Green Knight,” because he believed the story of King Arthur’s nephew was similar to his own journey as an actor, including many moments of self-doubt.
Dev said, “Although it’s a medieval film, for me there are a lot of parallels with the career of a young actor. The idea of being known and having ambition, but at what price?
“And the idea that Gawain is surrounded by all these legends at the round table and doesn’t feel worthy of himself. I have found myself in a situation where I have this impostor syndrome, just like him, ”said Dev Patel
Dev Patel identified with his character, the former “Skins” actor enjoying playing someone different from many of his other roles, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
He said, “For this movie, all the big-eyed and open vulnerability stuff that I normally lean on has been taken from me. I have to play someone who gets cold and numb and broken and numb along the way. “
Dev Patel also reflected on the “crazy” time in his life when he became known worldwide thanks to his role in “Slumdog Millionaire”.
“It was really like throwing a lobster into a boiling pot. It was ridiculous in every way. I was taken from my storeroom on Rayners Lane (North West London), ”he told The Times Saturday Review.
Dev added, “I’ve been on the train everywhere and all of a sudden I’m on the front page of the newspaper and there’s that moment in the carriage where everyone’s head, one at a time, like meerkats starts to turn and shut stare. It was a crazy experience. And in a way, I still feel that way today. You can’t take the Rayners Lane kid away from me. “
