Actor Whitehead attended for the role of Jehovah’s Witnesses
British actor Fionn Whitehead (“Dunkirk”) met with Jehovah’s Witnesses in preparation for his role in the new feature film “Childhood Welfare.”
Stuttgart. “Not only did I read a lot about this religious community, but I also attended one of their meetings,” the 21-year-old told the “Südkurier” (Wednesday). He participated in a service and talked to many people.
He himself “did not grow up very religiously”. It would be difficult to understand how to grow into such a form of faith. “But you already get a sense that these people in their community have their entire roots, their whole family and all their loved ones – and a break with religion would bring tremendous loneliness.”
“Kindwohl” will be released this Thursday (30th of August). Whitehead plays in the side of Emma Thompson and Stanley Tucci a seriously ill, who threatens to die because he refuses as a Jehovah’s Witness blood transfusion.
