Through various rumors and reports we have learned a great deal about The Force Awakens, but many of the new characters that are set to be introduced are still shrouded in secrecy. One of those characters is General Hux, played by Domhnall Gleeson, whom we know is one of the leaders of the First Order, and that's about it. Recently Gleeson spoke with Total Film magazine where he talked about his character and why he was drawn to the character. Games Radar reports:
"Yeah, I mean you look at him and you realise he’s not a good guy! He’s got an English accent so he can’t be good.” He said. Gleeson went on to add that Abrams described Hux as “merciless”, before getting worried he was giving too much away, “Is that what he said?”.
Gleeson also reportedly said that, aside from the obvious, what drew him to the role was his desire to "play something different". He also discussed the breathtaking experience of stepping on set:
"That’s one of those ‘pinch me’ moments. I experienced it in a major way on Harry Potter and it’s a similar thing with Star Wars, except you look down and you’re in the gear and you have stuff to say and you’re like, ‘Holy God.’ And yes, it’s very difficult to remain cool about stuff like that. There’s no two ways about it, it’s totally brilliant."
Of course you can read the full interview by picking up the latest issue of Total Film magazine!
