Kirsten Dunst and Benedict Cumberbatch
Actors ignored each other while shooting the film
On the set of “The Power of the Dog”, the main actors Kirsten Dunst and Benedict Cumberbatch ignored each other. That was the reason.
Kirsten Dunst (39) and Benedict Cumberbatch (45) immersed themselves deeply in their rival roles for their new Netflix thriller “The Power of the Dog”. The two are said to have gone so far that they no longer talked to each other on the set. That betrayed Dunst at a press conference of the industry magazine “Deadline”.
Cumberbatch drives Haze “crazy”
In the film, Cumberbatch plays the malicious ranch owner Phil Burbank, who takes out his hatred on the fiancée (Kirsten Dunst) of his brother (Jesse Plemons, 33). “Benedict’s character is a quick-tempered character who slowly invades Rose’s head and drives her insane,” said Dunst, adding, “She’s strong at first, but he unsettles her so much that she ends up becoming an alcoholic. “
Plemons, who plays Dunst’s fiancé in “The Power of the Dog”, is her life partner in real life as well. The two have been a couple since 2016 and have two sons (born in 2018 and 2020).
“The Power of the Dog” is a western drama set in the southern United States and scheduled for the 1920s. The production is based on the novel of the same name by Thomas Savage (1915-2003), which was published in 1967. The film premiered at the Venice International Film Festival in September. The strip is due to appear on Netflix in the US on November 17th.
