Colin Farrell was left depressed after filming disturbing scenes for his latest film
Hollywood star Colin Farrell has revealed that he suffered from depression after filming harrowing scenes for his latest film.
The Killing Of A Sacred Deer is a psychological thriller which sees Farrell star opposite Nicole Kidman, as surgeon Steven Murphy.
Murphy is forced to make a terrible decision about the future of his children, and the Dublin born star said that he found the film difficult to make.
He said: “I was depressed by the end of it.
“We shot in continuity so the sense of dread you may have experienced in watching was, in a different way, experienced in doing it.”
The star denied that being a father himself made the scenes anymore difficult to filmi.
He said: “Some have suggested it must have been harder being a father but I was kind of going, ‘Not really, if I wasn’t a dad I’d like to think that I’d be just as disturbed’.”
He added that the marriage that Steven and Anna (Kidman) is so bad that he couldn’t relate to his character.
He said: “The marriage they have is so far from anything I could ever conceive of having ever, if I could conceive of myself marrying.”
The Killing Of A Sacred Deer also stars Irish actor Barry Keoghan, who completes a great year having already appeared in the critically acclaimed Dunkirk. The film is tipped for Oscar glory and has already scooped the Best Screenplay award at Cannes.
