LA Times blog: The Making of Fenrir Greyback

In a new The Los Angeles Times blog post, special makeup designer Nick Dudman discusses his work on werewolf Fenrir Greyback. He notes that it was difficult since actor David Legeno was cast late in the process and that 10 people were assigned just to this project.

“For Greyback, Dudman's team spent seven months stockpiling a supply of multi-piece silicone makeup to be applied to the actor's head and chest, with each bit of goat hair individually punched into the makeup.”

It took about 5 1/2 days to apply the hairs for one set of makeup that would be used for only one day of shooting.
