Baron Cohen Recruited Barber For Film Role

Published on February 06, 2008 with No Comments

Sacha Baron Cohen was so determined to give an accurate portrayal of a barber in Sweeny Todd – he recruited his own personal stylist to give him lessons.

The British star – who plays Italian coiffure Adolfo Pirelli in the film – even brought Sicilian-born barber Carmelo Guastella on to the set of the murder musical to ensure his shaving techniques were up to scratch.

Guastella said: “Sacha’s very professional. He takes his roles very seriously and does a lot of preparation, so much so that he commandeered me for four days to make sure he really looked like he was shaving on set. Sacha did it marvellously, singing a complex song in an Italian accent while lifting the lather from his client’s face like a professional.”
