After – Chapter 1 : Anna Todd reveals to us the real reasons of the departure of Daniel Sharman (itw)
Before Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, Daniel Sharman was asked to interpret the bad boy Hardin Scott in the film After – Chapter 1, except that it was finally decided to abandon the project. But this departure was it really his decision ? PRBK took the opportunity of an interview with Anna Todd, the author of the saga literature, to get some more info on this subject.
Since April 17, 2019, all fans of After (but not that) can finally discover, in the film adaptation of the book with Hero Fiennes-Tiffin and Josephine Langford in the roles of Hardin and Tessa. But did you know that the original Daniel Sharman and Julia Goldani had been chosen to play the main characters ? The actress has finally abandoned the project because one-time-use. The former star of The Originals, has also left the film, but for another reason.
“If we had done the film a few years ago, it would have been able to work”
“I decided that this was not something I wanted to do (…) I would lose by doing that. But the offer of the role was incredibly flattering, “said Daniel Sharman in Daman Magazine in 2017. Except that during our interview with Anna Todd, author of After we gave a different reason : the actor was in fact too old for the role of Hardin.
“It was part of the last 3 actors in the running for the role of Hardin. I adore her as a person and as an actor, he is very talented. But if we had done the film a few years ago, it would have been able to work. Except that here it has not been able to do that because it was twelve years older than Hardin. If we had shot 5 years ago, it would have been different. I was sad to take this decision“, revealed Anna Todd to PRBK. All is explained of the blow !
