    Austin Butler and Stellan Skarsgård’s kiss scene was one of the best scenes from the film, something that gained awe-struck fans’ compliments. Butler revealed that the scene was improvised by him.

    Talking about it he said, “[The kiss] with Stellan Skarsgård? Oh yeah!. He’s game for anything. He’s the best…it’s always about how you’re trying to affect somebody else.”

    Also commenting on his experience as the villain, Skarsgård said, “I laughed so much because it was so obvious that he really enjoyed being evil.”

    Commenting on his own approach to the role, and if he used any method acting, Butler said, “I’ve definitely in the past, with ‘Elvis,’ explored living within that world for three years and that being the only thing that I think about day and night. With Feyd, I knew that that would be unhealthy for my family and friends.”

    “I made a conscious decision to have a boundary,” Butler continued. “It allowed for more freedom between action and cut because I knew I was going to protect everybody else outside of the context of what we were doing. That’s not to say that it doesn’t bleed into your life. But I knew that I wasn’t going to do anything dangerous outside of that boundary, and in a way that allowed me to go deeper.”

    Dune 2‘ is now available to watch on theatres.
