On ‘Being Bin Laden’ for ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ (New York Times)

The man at the center of the controversial Oscar-nominated film Zero Dark Thirty writes for The New York Times what it was like to play “the global face of evil.” Ricky S. Sekhon, a 29-year-old Londoner, writes of training both at the Royal Holloway, University of London, for his drama degree, and then by running up hills and eating only protein, to become “a waif of Bin Laden’s ilk.” The actor shares stories of the film’s realism and how he attempted to embody the terrorist.
