I didn’t need to get into bad place for Bane, says Hardy

January 31st, 2012 by bash 1 Comment

We’ve seen and read much about the character of Bane in the forthcoming The Dark Knight Rises, but we haven’t heard much from the man who will bring this character to life.

English actor Tom Hardy spoke to the UKPA about portraying one of the darkest men in Gotham City.

He said: “I didn’t get into a dark place at all. A lot of dark characters are easy to have distance from, it’s something I feel comfortable with, I suppose.”

While he felt comfortable balancing the darker side of his character, the Warrior star said it took him a while to get used to wearing the infamous Bane mask.

“Bane’s mask is tight, actually,” he admitted. “I got used to it, but you get used to anything really, in time.”

The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Christopher Nolan, will be released in July.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
