As an actor, Anderson needed to, at the very least abstractly, invent a backstory for his character, although his previous was left deliberately obscure by the “John Wick: Chapter 4” filmmakers. His concepts weren’t written into the script, however they had been a helpful solution to inform his character. Anderson took superficial parts of Mr. No one — his costume, his props, and many others. — and reverse-engineered the “whys.” If Mr. No one had a mark on his physique, it was Anderson’s job to invent the story as to how he received it. These sorts of particulars clearly enriched his efficiency. Anderson mentioned:
“I appeared on the Joker and studied a number of what Heath Ledger did, how thrilling that character was; you simply knew that man had a sturdy previous. Like, Why did he get these scars? And, for me, Why do I’ve this canine? Why do I’ve this knapsack? Why am I dressed like this? This man’s transient. He has pockets as a result of he travels a lot; he would not actually change.”
It appears the one direct connection Mr. No one had with the Joker was that he was determined, but additionally mysterious. Audiences might perceive his standpoint and his motivation whereas by no means understanding his path or his backstory. It is an efficient solution to preserve viewers intrigued, whereas nonetheless permitting the character to be mutable and mysterious. The precept is the factor. Even when the precept is said to chaos and/or homicide.
