Dakota Johnson is mostly known for her role as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades film franchise. Now that particular movie series has ended, Dakota Johnson is going to be looking to diversify her career in the entertainment industry and nothing could be more different to Fifty Shades of Grey than the remake of horror film Suspiria.
In an interview with Collider, Dakota Johnson was given the chance to speak about this movie that has shocked audiences with its unsettling visual set-pieces.
Dakota Johnson said this on the experience of working on Suspiria:
“It was really isolated and spectacular. Firenze is a very tiny little town in the north of Italy, an hour away from Milan. Where we were filming was up a mountain, like you can’t write this. It was up a windy road and we watched … as we were filming the season … the leaves fall from the tree and snow started to kind of stick more. It got colder and we’re in this abandoned hotel.”
“They had completely … not renovated the hotel but it had evolved. I went to see it when I went for rehearsals. I saw like the guts of the hotel and Luca, me, and Thom Yorke, the three of us went up to see it, and it was just hollow and freaky.”
“There was sort of like an old asylum feeling to it. Then by the time I went back it had been transformed and it was warm. It had been painted. It looked fresh. It was beautiful. Obviously from the production design you can tell that it was very specific, the aesthetic. It was amazing. I loved it.”
“Every day going there and being in this place all day and, you know, we had … on one of the floors, one hallways, one corridor which used to be hotel rooms were our dressing rooms, and Mia and I were both smoking at the time, so we’d be like leaning out of our windows of this abandoned hotel on the top of a mountain in the dead of winter, smoking cigarettes like bundled up.”
