Daniel Day-Lewis – His Extensive Prep For Phantom Thread Revealed

This an interview with Marc Happel, who isn’t an acting teacher but Director of Costumes at the New York City Ballet.

Daniel Day-Lewis spent a year with him, nearly every day, learning how to be a dress maker to prepare for the film Phantom Thread.

It’s a fascinating interview which I highly recommend that you watch, as you will learn a great deal about how far Daniel goes in his prep.
