Jared Leto's efforts for Blade Runner 2049

The actor will be playing a blind and corrupt replicant manufacturer in the film

Published: 03rd October 2017

Jared Leto plays Neander Wallace, a blind and corrupt replicant manufacturer in Blade Runner 2049, another rich character to follow up his appearance as the Joker in Suicide Squad and as a HIV-positive trans woman Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club.

To get into the skin of his character as a vision-impaired villain, Leto decided to once again turn to method acting and spent the entire shoot trying to live without the benefit of sight. The actor wore specially designed contact lenses that made his eyes look opaque while simultaneously prohibiting visibility. It also required the Oscar winner to be guided around the set.

Director Denis Villeneuve said in a recent interview, “I am always moved by the way actors bring their characters to life. They’re all different. They all have different techniques and Jared used to immerse himself into the character and make sure that every little detail is as close as possible to the character”

Jared also concentrated on studying the behaviour of some of his friends who were blind, paying close attention to their gestures. He noticed they have a different way of moving and incorporated that into his performance as well.

Blade Runner 2049, a Sony Pictures Entertainment India release, will be out this Friday.
