Sir Ben Kingsley has revealed that he is a huge fan of Steven Spielberg, insisting that the legendary filmmaker has left lasting impact on his acting style.
The 69-year-old actor, who worked with Spielberg in Schindler’s List, 20 years ago, recollected how the veteran’s unique directing style gave him creative freedom on the set, the Daily Express reported. The Oscar winner told Femalefirst that Spielberg is a remarkable man and they had gotten pretty close.
He insisted that working with the 66-year-old movie director was organised chaos and terror because he felt like he was at the centre of Dante’s Inferno and that’s exactly what Spielberg intended as he would shout, Don’t act, improvise!
“We had to re-create, to re-enact the epicentre of the world’s evil. You can’t help but be affected by that,” Kingsley added.
