‘That was how seriously he took it’: Gary Oldman ‘slept in a coffin EVERY NIGHT’ as he prepared for iconic role as Count Dracula in Francis Ford Coppola blockbuster










Gary Oldman slept in a coffin every night as he prepared for the role of Dracula in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 vampire film based on the legendary book by Bram Stoker.

The actor, 63, starred as the blood-sucking Count in the film alongside Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder and Cary Elwes, who recently shared the fact with The Hollywood Reporter

Cary, 59, told the publication: ‘Gary was sleeping in a coffin every night, that was how seriously he took it.’

The Princess Bride star, who played one of the vampire hunters in the film, also shared that Francis made the whole cast live together, while Gary lived on his own. 

He said: ‘We all stayed in the guest houses on the property. Francis believes that the more time the cast spends together that will translate onscreen. 

‘So he had all the vampire hunters live on one property and poor Gary had to live by himself.’

It is not the first time that Gary has gone to extreme lengths to get into character. 

He piled on the pounds back in the 2011 film Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and more recently has gained weight for his role as Jackson Lamb in the Apple TV show Slow Horses. 

Gary will play the hapless British intelligence agent exiled to Slough House, an MI5 dumping ground for washed-up spooks.

Oldman recently described the character as having ‘greasy hair and flatulence’ adding: ‘He’s a f**ting, working-class version of George Smiley.’ 

Gary is set to star the series which is an Apple TV adaptation of novelist Mick Herron’s bestselling spy book of the same name. 

Kristen Scott Thomas, Game of Thrones star Sir Jonathan Pryce and English actress Olivia Cooke will also star in the series.
