Indian origin actor plays Osama in 'Zero Dark Thirty'
Indian origin British actor Ricky Sekhon says he spent sleepless nights after bagging the role of Osama Bin Laden in Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty'.
The 29-year-old 6-foot-4 actor who describes himself as "the least dangerous person I know", said he got the part after being called to audition for a role the casting director was not allowed to name, reported New York Post.
"I think I was asked about my height a few times, and that made me think, 'OK, I'll be playing a tall man or woman'. But I wasn't fooling myself. My span of film castings have consisted of either terrorist, drug dealer, drug addict, heavy, henchman, large man, very tall man. I think it's something to do with how I look," he said.
Ricky Sekhon Sekhon admitted the prospect was worrying.
"There were a few sleepless nights, to say the least. I don't care how much confidence you have, hearing news like that will really put (pressure on) you if you're planning on taking it seriously, which I was."
Sekhon spent eight weeks preparing for the role seriously.
