Sleepwalker (Dr Scott White) – 2017

“Sleepwalker is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university’s sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of her sleep researcher, Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back into the reality she started in, but when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.” (Following Films Podcast:   Christopher Maynard interviews Richard Armitage – Sleepwalker (October 29, 2017))

I really love, I’ve always said, I’m an actor, that I love working in the shadows and just kind of stepping into the light occasionally, and it really suited my, my personal taste. (Following Films Podcast:   Christopher Maynard interviews Richard Armitage – Sleepwalker (October 29, 2017))

… and then at one point I even realized that the character I was playing possibly didn’t even exist, and that’s a really difficult thing to wrap your head around, that you’re playing somebody that doesn’t exist – it’s just a figment of somebody’s imagination or dream – but I liked that challenge. I liked the idea of that. (Following Films Podcast:   Christopher Maynard interviews Richard Armitage – Sleepwalker (October 29, 2017))
