Nicolas Cage is a man of many talents. The actor recently spoke about his disturbing behavior on the set of his movie Renfield. Cage revealed the reason behind Chris McKay’s remark as he told Hollywood Reporter about his experience working on the film and how he evolved into his character.

The actor revealed,

“I just don’t have that recollection, I don’t know why Chris said that. I had a lot of laughs in between takes with both Chris McKay and Nick Hoult, so maybe that was his experience, maybe because I still had the fangs in my mouth that made me speak a certain way, but that wasn’t my experience.”

He continued,

“With this Dracula, I was trying to fuse that which is scary and humorous even at the same time in the line delivery. It was just how can you be creepy and funny at the same time, that was the challenge.”

According to the movie director, Cage was so much into his character and having fun playing Dracula in Renfield that he couldn’t let go of his role even after they wrapped up the shooting. Chris McKay told Insider,

“Whatever scene we did he would still be 100% living in that attitude after we stopped shooting. So if he’s a little frosty in the scene he’s going to have a little bit of that between takes. But still up for whatever we were doing. But you also have to remember, he’s covered head to toe in Dracula makeup and costume, so it’s a different thing.” 

Renfield is an upcoming movie it will be released on April 14, 2023, which stars Nicolas Cage, Nicholas Hoult, Ben Schwartz, and Awkwafina.

The Rock movie star revealed his father, August Coppola, was the biggest influence on his portrayal of Dracula. He said,

“Dracula is a character that’s been done many times, it’s been done well a few times. He always spoke with distinction, he was very elegant and eloquent, he was always the smartest man in every room he walked in and he knew, and he made sure we knew. I think Dracula, being around for so many years, would have some of that aura.”

“I think getting to work with him again as an adult gave me a true appreciation of what a master he is of the craft, how much he’s given to the cinematic world over the years, all of the iconic performances he’s given, and I think this is another one. I was like, oh, this feels very different. It’s a swing, but if it works then I think we have a fun movie.”
