    Michael Sheen: ‘Tron character based on Frank-N-Furter’

    Michael Sheen used “multiple personalities” on ‘Tron: Legacy’ to create camp nightclub owner Castor.


    Michael Sheen developed “multiple personalities” based on film characters for his role in ‘Tron: Legacy’.

    The British actor – who plays nightclub owner Castor in the follow-up to the classic 80s movie – based the role on a number of camp icons from the past, including Ziggy Stardust and Frank-N-Furter.

    He said: “Castor is a guy who runs a nightclub who is a performer who uses multiple personalities as a smoke screen, so there’s Ziggy Stardust in there, there’s a bit of Joel Grey from Cabaret and a bit of Frank-N-Furter from the Rocky Horror Show.

    “I like the idea of being a popular-culture jukebox of all of these things.”

    The 41-year-old star also reveals he was a huge fan of the original film, which “transported” him for the first time from the cinema seat into the movie.

    He told the Daily Telegraph: “I was 12 when my uncle took me to see it – he was babysitting that day. It was the first time a film had transported me in that way, took me to a different world. And when I came out of the cinema in Neath on a cold rainy day, the world looked different. It gave me a sense of what was possible in cinema.”
