Skarsgard found it tought to shoot violent scenes with Kidman

Los Angeles, April 4 (IANS) Actor Alexander Skarsgard found it difficult to film domestic violence scenes with actress Nicole Kidman because she is so “warm and generous”.

The 40-year-old actor plays a violent husband to Kidman’s on screen character Celeste in the mini-series “Big Little Lies”. Skarsgard says his co-star’s affable nature made the intense scenes difficult to shoot, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

“It was important every day after shooting a scene like that to check in with each other and make sure that we would reconnect and talk about how we felt about it and what we went through. We both knew that jumping in your car and going home after a scene like that is very tough,” Skarsgard said.

“You need to share that connection with the person you just went through that with. I had the best partner in the world with Nicole in doing that. She’s not only an extraordinary actress, but such a warm and generous person. That made it be even more difficult,” he added.

Skarsgard says it is important to tell domestic violence stories on TV, even though it can make for uncomfortable viewing.

“It’s obviously a huge problem in our society. It’s stigmatised. Wives are protective of their husbands and in certain cases they blame themselves and say, ‘It takes two to tango. I’m partly responsible for this’.”
