How Kazuhiro Tsuji transformed Gary Oldman into Winston Churchill for The Darkest Hour
Originally published on December 21, 2017
Kazuhiro Tsuji has had an incredible career in makeup and prosthetics for film. He turned Jim Carrey into the Grinch, Brad Pitt into Benjamin Button and he worked on Planet of the Apes, to name a few.
A few years ago, Tsuji became exhausted by the industry and took a step back to focus on one of his passions: sculpture. But he knew he had to make his return to Hollywood when Gary Oldman called and said he wouldn't accept the role of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour unless Tsuji was the one to transform him.
Tsuji joined q's Tom Power to look back on his career as well as some of the most memorable special effects makeup transformations he's been responsible for.
