Dark Phoenix’s Kodi Smit-McPhee Reveals How He Geared Up For The Role of Nightcrawler

Kodi Smit-McPhee stars as Nightcrawler in the new X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix.

In a recent interview with Interview magazine, the 22-year-old actor opened up about diving into the role and how he got in the mutant’s mindset.

“I went through every popular creation of Nightcrawler and studied the character within every genre,” Kodi admits. “He has a timidity, a vulnerability, and a grounded nature. He’s also very wide-eyed and curious.”

He added, “When it comes to being on a mission, he can be very savage and animalistic. He has the whole spiritual side to him, which I love. There’s the story where he’s kept in the circus, and he’s going through a lot of suffering and frustration and confusion, but he finds God through that.”

Dark Phoenix is in theaters now.
