Jamie Bell: I like enjoying ambiguous characters | Leisure

Jamie Bell loves playing an ambiguous character on “Without Remorse”.

The 35-year-old actor plays CIA officer Robert Ritter in the Stefano Sollima-directed film and enjoyed the experience of playing such a complicated character.

He shared, “I feel incredibly blessed and incredibly grateful that I can play someone like Bernie Taupin in ‘Rocketman,’ the biopic of Elton John, and then do something that is so worlds apart, you know.

“Of course in one [Tom] Clancy Film, one of the characters who are part of one of those institutions – these government institutions … their morals are always ambiguous. Whether you can trust them is always questionable. Your intentions are always unclear.

“For me – when I experience these films and grew up with these films – it is always the ones that really come to life and getting the chance to do so was a thrill.”

Jamie, who stars alongside Michael B. Jordan, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Guy Pearce in the film, announced that his director gave him a specific instruction before the cameras started rolling.

Speaking to HeyUGuys, Jamie explained, “I just had one note about this film from my director and it was like, ‘I never really want to know what you think – I never want to know who you are and what you stand for’.”

Meanwhile, Jamie rose to fame in the 2000 dance drama film ‘Billy Elliot’, and he previously admitted that he was completely unprepared for his success.

He said, “The first time I went to New York, I said, ‘What’s the matter?’ I’d never been on a plane before making this film, and then I said, “There’s something really big here.”
