Dave Bautista as per We Got This Covered opened up on the time he had to share screen with Stellan Skarsgård in Dune. He said, “Those days in the steam baths, those were like some of my first days, and I was on set, I’m supposed to be this big, menacing, ominous character, and I’m literally sh*tting myself. I’m like, ‘That’s Stellan Skarsgård!’. And I was next to my buddy thinking this is all so surreal, like, ‘How the hell did I get from a professional wrestling ring to here? This is crazy!’.”
“I was dying on the inside. My heart was beating fast, and I was just so excited, but, at the same time, just trying to be terrifying. So, terrifying on the outside, inside I was like a little fan-boy,” Dave Bautista added.
