Here's How Nat Wolff Prepared for His Dark Role in Netflix's 'Death Note'
TBH, we still can't believe that Nat Wolff took on a dark role in Netflix's adaptation of Death Note. We always saw him as the awkward poet Rusty in Stuck in Love, Gus' blind best friend in The Fault in Our Stars, or Margo's devoted friend Quentin in Paper Towns. But in Death Note, we see Nat's transformation from an out-of-place high school student to someone who has control over someone's death as Light Turner.
So during a video interview with one of our favorite young actors (ever!), we just had to ask him all about the movie!
"I have heard about it from my cousin and some of my friends," Nat explained. "But once I read the script, I knew that I have to delve deeper into the script. And now, I am just a fan."
The most interesting part? In order to get into Light's character, Nat came up with his own Death Note. OMG!
"Actually before we started filming, I thought you'd have to be a real psychopath to make the Death Note. But I just have to give it a try, so I made my own Death Note and soon I was writing name after name; names just kept flying off my pen. I realized that anybody can get easily influenced by this much power."
For effectively portraying the dark role given to him, he believes that things don't always have to be discussed with the person you're working with—especially in this movie.
"We didn't really go over our scenes together. Sometimes, certain relationships will bring you into character; it's better left unsaid to keep the tension. Sometimes, you have to get in there and work it out," he said. "The scenes with Ryuk were the ones I most freaked out about, but it ended up much smoother than I thought. I [had to be certain] I was talking to a demon god, that I just have to jump in, not be embarrassed, and go for it."
Watch Nat give life to Light's character in Death Note, exclusively streaming on Netflix.

Here's my two cents on the letter, call for help of our medical frontliners. Let’s hear what our healthcare workers have to say and try to understand it from their point of view, they have every right to criticize how this medical crisis is being handled by the government... after all, they're the experts on the topic. Though we see the frontliners as heroes in our eyes, the lack of concrete plans from the government to combat COVID-19 makes them feel otherwise. Healthcare workers are already starting to voice out how they feel as though they are being sacrificed as they follow through their sworn oath. We wouldn’t send our soldiers to war unarmed and without a concrete plan; the same should be expected for our frontliners. How can we send them to battle without proper gear? Why is there still a debate on whether mass testing is needed or not when the experts on that field continuously insist its importance in flattening the curve? Why is this still not the priority when it’s literally our lives on the line? It’s not like the medical experts demanding for mass testing are just stating their opinion about this mindlessly, they studied this laboriously. Make them feel heard so that all the sacrifices that they’re doing and all the deaths of their colleagues are not in vain. More than the words of praises, what our medical professionals truly need right now is TANGIBLE support. Here is to hoping they get that soon. @errren.22

Here is a photograph taken yesterday from the photo shoot I did in our house. ? I really love dressing up and being dolled up, it makes me feel great and confident of who I am ?
I was actually hesitant to post these pictures of mine. My sister eveb asked me to change my Facebook Profile Picture and it took me hours to decide if I should. But, I realized that this is me, the real me. I should be confident of my body and of who I really am.
At the end of the day, I dress up not for other people but for myself ? To all the ladies out there and even gentlemen who are taking a second to think if they should post their pictures, worried about what will others say their body, remember that we just need to be just ourselves. Be confident and let us support each other ? Let us be friends! IG: @romynaaaaaaa_
They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?
I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.
I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.
I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.
No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
