    After scarring the audience in ‘It’, Skarsgård is now all set to play Count Orlok in Robert Eggers’ ‘Nosferatu’. Bill Skarsgård’s preparation for the role has been tough and it did take a toll on him as well. His hair, makeup, and costume have been tightly kept under wraps. 

    He’s gross. But it is very sexualized. It’s playing with a sexual fetish about the power of the monster and what that appeal has to you,” Skarsgård said while describing his character.
