Luke Wilson on family, breaking type and his new film Guest of Honour
In Atom Egoyan's new film Guest of Honour, Luke Wilson stars as a priest helping a grieving daughter plan her father's funeral. While the actor may be best known for his roles in comedies like The Royal Tenenbaums, Bottle Rocket or Old School, he's become very familiar with loss and mourning over the last couple of years. In real life, Wilson is just emerging from the loss of his father, Robert Wilson, who died in 2017.
Wilson sat down with q's Tom Power at the Toronto International Film Festival to talk about how his loss shaped his character in Guest of Honour, and how the fusion of family and film has shaped his life.
Guest of Honour kicks off the Vancouver International Film Festival on Thursday, Sept. 26.
