An Enemy: meet Anthony, Adam’s double
I was curious to see how different Adam and Anthony would look. It’s amazing how, with the help of a mere change of clothes and hair-do, Jake managed to comply the uneasy task to portray two diverse characters. It’s all in his posture, his eyes, his hands even, the result being a totally different man from Adam despite the exact same appearance.
Anthony is a self-confident actor (married, in the film) and judging by the helmet we might even see him driving a bike (good lord)
Even though I’m curious to know why would someone who supposedly owns a bike
get on a bus with the helmet…
Here he is having a break with the director Denis Villeneuve,
whom we should all prostrate before for having chosen Jake for this film
(and look at that policewoman! if looks could kill…)
Can you see the difference?
As you can see in the picture above the lovely Mélanie Laurent joined the cast yesterday, while Sarah Gadon, who plays Anthony’s wife (you sure have noticed his ring finger) was last seen in Cannes two days ago so we might have to wait for her to recover from the festival celebrations.
Last but not least, here’s a nice blog post by Toronto blogger Mr. Will-W with a lovely set of pics, who was on the set yesterday and even got to talk to a very sweet and kind Mélanie:
Exciting day in Toronto as filming for Denis Villeneuve’s An Enemy took to the streets, giving some female Onlookers quite the shock when they saw Jake Gyllenhaal emerge out of a TTC Streetcar!
[…]Today’s filming saw Gyllenhaal and Laurent on a Streetcar, then following her to her Office in hot pursuit. The Film Crew took several precautions to protect their Talent and Gyllenhaal was veiled by not one, but two umbrellas. Fans watched across-the-street in awe as he ran through multiple takes, snapping Photos with their Cell Phones.
Two umbrellas? One for Anthony and one for Adam, I assume.
Laurent was incredibly sweet, stopping to chat with a couple French-speaking Fans on a bench and also snapped a Photo with me too during a quick break from filming. “Parlez-vous Francais?”, she asks. Sheepishly I replied, “Je comprends. But cannot speak v. well”, drawing a smile and a nod from her.
More about An Enemy soon. Stay tuned!
