Before Steven Spielberg cast Oscar winner Mark Rylance to play the titular giant in “The BFG,” a convincing performer was already tied to the role: the director himself.
“‘The BFG’ had a nostalgic impact on me because it was one of the first books I read to my kids,” Spielberg about the 1982 Roald Dahl novel.
“I could be the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) to my own children, who looked up to me while I was reading that story. So I would do the BFG voice, I would pretend to be the BFG (acting it out) with my own personality.”
Those who didn’t get to hear Spielberg’s bedtime adaptation in person get the next best thing when “The BFG” opens on 15th July in India.
