Oscar Isaac on Playing Moon Knight, “He’s a Guy Who’s Really Struggling…”

Oscar Isaac, who will play the titular character in the new superhero series ‘Moon Knight,’ said that the key to portraying a character with Dissociative Identity Disorder was staying true to what the illness is about.

Talking about how his experience was to portray a superhero struggling with Dissociative Identity Disorder, Oscar said, “I think it was just about being honest to what Dissociative Identity Disorder is, and honest to what a lot of people have to deal with, which is really intense childhood trauma and how that manifests as an adult. I think for us it was about authenticity, more than even story communication.”

Meanwhile, Oscar’s co-actor in the series, Ethan Hawke feels that having a protagonist under tremendous pain sans any tropes of a classic hero is interesting to have in a piece of audio-visual content.

Elaborating on the same, the actor said, “It’s especially interesting to take your hero and present him with a real source of pain in mental illness. It’s not a joke. He’s a guy who’s really struggling, and it’s very interesting to have a protagonist who’s in a tremendous amount of pain and who is not a classic hero.”
