Sir Mark Rylance has revealed Dunkirk director Christopher Nolan banned chairs on the film’s set, as he joked he used to sit on younger actors instead.
Sir Mark told the Press Association: “He (Nolan) is very secretive about the script, he likes to be in control of everything but, that said, he wasn’t over-controlling about our acting of scenes, he allowed us to play.
“It was quite low-tech actually, that heavy camera was on the shoulder of the cameraman and he allowed us to roam around, it wasn’t too controlled there.
“He doesn’t like actors having chairs on set, so there is nowhere to sit down on a chair.” He joked: “You can sit down on other actors and as an older actor I’m allowed to sit on the younger actors.
He said: “It is a different task, a different thing to talk about, to make a film about war.
