The actor posted a three-slide Instagram post regarding the film and wrote in it, “You got it right, Massey. I was aware of all your preparation. The weight loss, sunburn to make your skin look that way, the accent, and the rest of it. Most would have felt that it was enough to crack the role. The truth is, the real preparation happens inside the soul of the character.” He added, "His resolve, his humanity, his belief system, his fiery belly, his fears and his strengths. You can't rehearse for that, can you? You can only live it through a belief that goes way beyond your stupendous external preparation for the role. You don't have to do for the camera, you have to be in front of the camera. That is exactly what happened. More strength to you, Massey; you have inspired a whole bunch of young actors, me included."
