At the LA premier of Will Smith’s latest move Emancipation, the actor shed some light on the major challenges he had to go through during filming.
“Yeah. You know, getting called the N-word 100 times a day by really good actors — it was rough. But, you know, it was really – it was difficult for everybody. It’s like recreating those scenes and, you know, having to — we’re out there in a lot of the actual locations where those things happened and, you know, it was — it was a brutal shoot“, explained the actor.
He continued: “The weather was brutal, the subject matter. And it was like, you know, in order to sustain the energy of the film, it was like everybody was having to tap into real ugliness, you know?”.
As detailed by IMDB, Emancipation follows the story of a slave who risks his life to escape the capture of white slave owners, embarking on a perilous journey.
