Dune 2 Actor Stellan Skarsgaard Refused CG For Pirates Films, Preferred Practical Effects Instead - GameSpot

Story Highlights:

Skarsgaard is almost unrecognizable beneath the mountain of prosthetics used to give him an intimidating presence in the film, and it's not the first time the actor has sat for hours in a make-up chair as special effects artists work their craft on him, as back in the late 2000s, he portrayed the barnacle-infested Bootstrap Bill Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and At World's End.

In an interview for the Dune sequel, Skarsgaard explained how even then, he preferred wearing prosthetics to help him with his performance as opposed to other actors who wore motion-capture suits and had tracking dots on their faces for post-production special effects work".

Dune: Part Two is now out in cinemas--and scoring big at the box office--thanks in part to actor Stellan Skarsgaard putting in a scene-stealing performance as the villainous Vladimir Harkonnen.
