In the film, you see only a shadow just before my character is — spoiler alert — killed. During the sequence in bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, as the actors playing Navy SEALs stormed our eerily realistic set, we had shot some options showing him moving around. Because of how enigmatic he was, I had the freedom to play on what I had decided for myself would be his state of mind and body. I wasn't thinking, "Bin Laden wouldn't stand up or walk like this," because, after so many years of house arrest, who knows how he carried himself?
The controversial movie has been a resounding success. I have returned to my normal life in London. The make-up and fake blood are gone, and my career's been picking up somewhat. But would I be prepared to play a universally despised emblem of evil again? I guess it would depend on how many lines I had.
