The upcoming serial killer movie “The Good Nurse” actor Eddie Redmayne was open about his experience going to nursing school.
The actor spent two weeks at a nursing school learning about what nurses do in order to impersonate real-life serial killer Charles Cullen, an ICU nurse who confessed to killing 29 of his patients.
Redmayne teased British GQ by saying, “You never want me in a crisis, I was utterly s—- at it.” I’m just winging it; I don’t have a big plan.
The plot of the film, which is based on Charles Graeber’s 2013 book “The Good Nurse: A True Story of Medicine, Madness, and Murder,” centers on Jessica Chastain’s character Amy Loughren, a colleague nurse and friend of Cullen’s who exposes his misdeeds.
After Michelle Williams’ exit, JESSICA Chastain will join “Scenes of a Marriage,” according to a report.
Redmayne watched videos of the real-life Cullen from his court hearings and his 2013 “60 Minutes” interview in addition to going to nursing school.
According to Redmayne, “There was something in his body that was interesting to me.” He is an extremely calm dude. But if you really pay attention, you’ll notice that he’s always calming himself. I’m not sure if caressing materials can be described as comforting, though. Something is constantly in motion. The man was a horribly damaged human being, so the idea that he may seek solace intrigued me.
