Colin Farrell Talks About Working With Tim Burton On Dumbo
by Christine Marie Attardo
There’s only two months left until we get to dive into the magical Tim Burton rendition of Dumbo, and I couldn’t be more excited. While I am expecting to have my emotions tormented, I am looking forward to the twists he is sure to bring. With that said, I’m also really looking forward to the cast of characters, especially Colin Farrell. He will play the character of Holt Farrier who is a single father returning to the circus after war.
Farrell expressed his admiration for the Director in an interview with Oh My Disney:
The idea of [acting in] something as sweet and fantastical and otherworldly, while being grounded in some recognizable world that we can relate to, under the direction of Tim, was a dream … I’ve always been looking for something of that ilk…He’s just really wonderful to work with. He’s deeply kind, he’s so invested. To watch him on the set, and how engaged he is, and how frenetic at times his energy can be, and how he moves. It’s just a joy, and he’s just really kind to everyone.
