When pulling up to the set of his latest project, "The Devil All the Time," Robert Pattinson had a trick up his sleeve that surprised his fellow castmates.
As it turns out, Pattinson had been honing in on a high-pitched Southern drawl for days before letting anyone hear the finished product. Even the movie's director, Antonio Campos, was in the dark.
In an interview with Insider, Campos revealed that Pattinson refused to work with a dialect coach, even after hearing how the character was supposed to sound. "Rob was impossible to get dialect coaching," Campos said.
"He just didn't want to do it. He was just adamant about figuring it out on his own," he continued. Luckily, he had faith that Pattinson would show up with something good.
"I don't get worried about those things," he said. "There was no way in my mind that he wasn't going to come on set with something bad. I might not have dug it, but it wasn't going to be bad."
Campos continued on to say that he would rather see something from an actor that was at least thought out well rather than something that didn't have much meaning behind it.
Finally, on Pattinson's first day of shooting, he revealed the voice he had been working so hard to perfect. "That was the first time I heard his voice and saw the character in person," Campos said.
This isn't the first time Pattinson has pulled a sneaky move on set. In August, Pattinson revealed that he had to sneak away from Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" set in order to audition for "The Batman."
"And then I had to be really secretive about Batman stuff. So I had to lie to Chris about having to go for a screen test - I said I had a family emergency," Pattinson explained.
