Bill Skarsgård x Dazed magazine, Autumn 2017.

'It' actor Bill Skarsgård is featured in the Autumn 2017 issue of 'Dazed' magazine, wearing new season looks from Gucci, Balenciaga, Vivienne Westwood, and Saint Laurent - as styled by Robbie Spencer and photographed by Walter Pfeiffer.

On playing Pennywise: "I walked into this scene, in character, where these kids were sitting. They’d never even met me before, let alone seen me as Pennywise. Andy (Muschietti) is behind the camera shouting directions and he’s like, ‘Bill, grab one of the kids! Grab one of the kids and walk out of the frame!’ So I’m running around these kids, laughing maniacally, and I grab one and he just shrieks! And Andy’s like, ‘Oh no, not that guy!’ – I had to change kids to find one that wasn’t so terrified. It was weird because as soon as they said ‘cut’, some kids were very shaken up about it. I tried to be like, ‘Oh, I’m just an actor, this is just pretend,’ and they kind of looked at me very suspiciously. It just hit me that it’s this strange thing: if I do my job right, and I’m as terrifying as I want the character to be, there are gonna be a lot of people that have this kind of reaction to the performance and the film. It’s a strange thing to have to deal with."
