The horror film It has already made a smash hit worldwide. The creepy thriller It has already managed to scare millions of moviegoers in a very short amount of time, due in great part to its portrayal of the murderous and nightmarish clown, Pennywise. But as you all know the movie characters are not real and the actors who do such roles don’t look the same either in real life.
You will get surprised to know that the actor behind all that scary clown makeup is actually really very smart in real life. You can’t believe your eyes after watching him. Get to know Bill Skarsgård, a name you’ll likely be hearing about for years to come. Bill’s father is the legendary Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård. As his father is a celebrity in Sweden, Skarsgård said it opened doors for bullies at school to pick on him and accuse him of being privileged.
“When I started working in Sweden, there were people that really wanted to hate me,” he told Out magazine in September 2017. “Kids in the f*****’ schoolyard would be like, ‘You think you’re so cool because your dad is Stellan Skarsgård, huh?’ And I’m like, ‘No? Not at all.’ But I would get into fights over it. [People think] it’s nice to be able to say, ‘This guy didn’t get any of this because he actually deserved it—he just got it for free.'”
Bill Skarsgård is a handsome man
He comes from a family of actors known for their great contribution in the cinema world. Becoming a dreadful dancing clown was the part of his character in the film. However, in real life, he doesn’t look like that anymore! He is smart and handsome. Take a look:
Before the film It, Skarsgård was seen earlier in a popular Netflix series too. He really amazed the audience by his terrible look in the film. The result was the movie proved out to be a blockbuster. Now his film has earned well over $150 million at the box office. After making a name for himself playing such a scary character, it makes total sense that Skarsgård is open to trying new roles in the future.
