The Kid Actors from the new IT have been crying and scared on set

Well, I guess it’s working.  Wonder if the studio is paying for therapy? The kids who are actors in IT, the remake of Stephen King’s creepy clown story, apparently have left the set crying and scared.  While speaking to his brother Alexander Skarsgard for Interview Magazine, Bill Skarsgard couldn’t avoid talking about being Pennywise in IT,

“It’s a really weird thing to go, ‘If I succeed at doing what I’m trying to do with this character, I’ll traumatize kids.’ On set, I wasn’t very friendly or goofy. I tried to maintain some sort of weirdness about the character, at least when I was in all the makeup. At one point, they set up this entire scene, and these kids come in, and none of them have seen me yet. Their parents have brought them in, these little extras, right? And then I come out as Pennywise, and these kids, young, normal kids, I saw the reaction that they had. Some of them were really intrigued, but some couldn’t look at me, and some were shaking. This one kid started crying. He started to cry and the director yelled, ‘Action!’ And when they say ‘action,’ I am completely in character. So some of these kids got terrified and started to cry in the middle of the take, and then I realized, ‘Holy shit. What am I doing? What is this? This is horrible.'”

If you haven’t seen the IT TRAILER, prepare to be scared.  Remember, they all float down here.
