Familiar to audiences for their roles in Dunkirk and Tomorrowland, respectively, Barry Keoghan and Raffey Cassidy turn in rather different performances in The Killing of a Sacred Deer, a distinctly dark and twisted endeavour from the creative mind of Greek auteur Yorgos Lanthimos.

We had the pleasure of meeting the duo, who spoke about the director’s last project The Lobster, and what he was like to collaborate on this movie. Cassidy speaks about the physical challenges her role posed, and why she had to wear kneepads for much of the shoot – while Keoghan tells us about working with Colin Farrell, and on his own quite remarkable in cinema.

Watch the full interview below…


Dr. Steven Murphy is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon who presides over a spotless household with his wife and two children. Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin, a fatherless teen who insinuates himself into the doctor’s life in gradually unsettling ways. Soon, the full scope of Martin’s intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter his domestic bliss forever.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer is released on November 3rd and you can read our review of the film here.
