Willem Dafoe Visits Boston University

The respected actor gave a free question and answer session to Boston University students Monday night. Those without a BU ID could attend for a fee of $25.

Dafoe answered questions from the dean of Boston University’s College of Fine Arts, Harvey Young, as well as from the audience. Topics ranged from what it was like to take on his most famous roles, to working with inexperienced actors, to his upbringing, and to his connections to Boston.

Dafoe’s papers, donated to the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center (which hosted the event), were on display outside the auditorium at the Tsai Performance Center. They revealed behind the scenes snapshots from his most famous films, including “Shadow of the Vampire”, “Platoon”, and “The Last Temptation of Christ.”
