In an interview with Varietythe iconic popstar Rina Sawayamawho will make his acting debut with the upcoming ‘John Wick 4’revealed some behind-the-scenes details of the sequel and returned to tearing up praise for Keanu Reeveswho returns as the titular protagonist.
“I really love the process of doing something I’ve never done – learning to read scripts and getting into a character. But I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to seeing myself on screen that way, to be honest – it’s a very different vibe from ‘I need to look hot in my music video’. The camera is so close you can basically see your pulse, it’s crazy, crazy up close. I watched a preview and it freaked me out because it was so weird.”she recounted.
The artist continues: “But Keanu was amazing, and exactly how you think he would be, so relax. But he took care of me in a lot of different ways, very behind the scenes – not telling me he was doing something for me, but making sure it was done. Although, because he’s one of the executive producers, it means he had a hand in casting me, so that was pretty crazy to understand.”
‘John Wick: Chapter 4‘ opens in theaters on the day March 24, 2023.
