Interview with Actor Dan Stevens for "The Guest"

Actor Dan Stevens is busy these days making a name for himself in the world of movies and television. In his ten years onscreen, he's already made an impact on audiences all across the world through commanding performances in British favorites like "Downton Abbey," "Sense and Sensibility," and "The Turn of the Screw." He's also proved to be a force to reckon with in several genre projects such as "Frankenstein," "Dracula," "Vamps," and "The Tomorrow People." Stevens will soon be seen in the upcoming "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.”

In the same weekend, Stevens has two features premiering that couldn't be further apart in the industry of filmmaking. He'll be seen opposite Liam Neeson in the mainstream action vehicle "A Walk Among the Tombstones." In some theaters, he'll be right across the halls in another auditorium terrorizing moviegoers in Director Adam Wingard and Writer Simon Barrett's indie thriller "The Guest."

The very polite and enthusiastic actor visited Dallas, TX on a press tour for “The Guest” a while back. I was fortunate enough to get to sit down with him during a round-table discussion and pick his brain about his role as the off-kilter center of the film, David.

“The Guest” revolves around a military veteran who returns from his tour of duty overseas. David seems to be the genuine article. A soft-spoken and well-mannered young man, he arrives on the doorstep of a fallen comrade’s home to tell his family his dying words and wishes.

With nowhere else to go, the family invites David to be their guest for a few days as he makes plans for the future. It gradually becomes all too apparent that their new visitor might not be who he claims to be as his behavior becomes more and more erratic. What sort of skeletons does David have in his closet and where did he really come from?

Check out the round-table I participated in below.
