Meanwhile, talking about his preparations for his iconic role in The Sandman, Tom Sturridge told Digital Spy it took hard work and dedication before he managed to transform into Morpheus.

He also revealed the importance of his character’s physical aspect in the series.

He said,

"There’s so many aspects of his physicality that were important to me, simply because he doesn’t express himself traditionally, often. And so the way that he moves, I think, could be an enlightening way of how he can articulate himself.”

Tom Sturridge also wanted to build a body similar to the image in the comics. So, how did he do it?

He explained,

"As far as how difficult that was to achieve – it was in the sense that it required discipline and working out and not eating that much. But actually, acting is such an ephemeral job. We’re constantly trying to catch clouds when we go to work. To work out is really easy. Because you just do the six things they tell you to do, and it happens."
