Portraying Joe's Character In “YOU” Was A Challenge For Penn

Being a father, he had a hard time portraying the role of Joe. 

He was very curious about how his new fatherhood would influence his experience with acting as Joe.

In reality, he was having a great and joyful time with his child. 

It was not helpful for him because the character Joe on screen was so scary, self-obsessed and morbid. 

Sometimes he found really hard to portray his character. 

He really had to struggle while shooting for some of the scenes.

Penn Talks About His Voiceover In The Show “YOU”

Penn revealed that 80 percent of his line was voice-over. 

Sometimes when he was on set for shooting, he actually did not have any lines to deliver. 

Other actors in the scenes got pages of lines to say where, as he would be just facing the camera. 

When the camera is too near to his face, he would just stare at the camera, and his stand-in would read all the thoughts. 

It’s very technical. He would have all his thoughts in his mind and deliver them through his expression. 

As an actor, he is very happy to get a chance to work with such technicality. 

He admitted that he started liking to do those scenes.
