Having signed an NDA like hundreds of other people involved in the new series, the 7 feet tall actor —who was once chased by a class of Italian schoolgirls through a museum in Paris— can’t say anything about the plot. Not even if he plays The Giant like in the original series, although the interviewer insinuates it’ll be a “mystical character in a vision.”
SPOILER ALERT: In the following quote, Carel Struycken reveals the number of scenes he filmed as well as his estimated screen time.
I didn’t get to read the script, and hardly any lines were written down for my four scenes. I have less screen time than I had twenty-five years ago, but I’m important for the development of the story.
A David Lynch fan since Blue Velvet, Carel Struycken confirms that the director’s M.O. hasn’t changed since the last time they worked together; he’s a master at creating a special atmosphere on set and always open to adding new elements on the spot. Even Lynch himself doesn’t always know where things are headed. But Carel believes that at the end of the ride, the puzzle pieces will all fit together.
