Gary Oldman Talks About Turning Down Edward Scissorhands

Well done to those of you who got today’s Guess the Movie from the Screenshot correct. It was indeed from Tim Burton’s brilliant Edward Scissorhands (1990).

Sadly (as always) there are no prizes. I can only hope that the satisfaction of getting it right and a thumbs up from me in the comments is enough reward. 😁👍

Anyway, I stumbled on this video recently. It’s a short clip of Gary Oldman talking about the time he said no to starring in Edward Scissorhands (presumably as Edward himself).

It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Johnny Depp in that role but just like JD, Garry Oldman has made a career out of making roles his own.👌

Take a look. ✂️🙌
