Penn Badgley Has Done 'Nauseating' Things Filming Second Season Of You

Penn Badgley Has Done 'Nauseating' Things Filming Second Season Of You

Certain actors are known to suffer for their art, whether it's Christian Bale's extreme weight loss or the deep method of Marlon Brando. It's not all glitz and glamour.

But Penn Badgley may have gone further than both after he claimed that he had to do horrible things in preparation for season two of Netflix's social media thriller, You.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 32-year-old said filming was much tougher than the first time around.

He said: "There are some things I've done with prosthetic bodies in this (new) season that were kind of nauseating as I did them, I will say that."

But we're sure his sacrifice will be our gain when the new series eventually lands on the streaming service, whenever that may be.

And the show's star assured fans that when it does, they will get an explanation to Joe's decision to kill Beck in the first season but they will need to be prepared to see the 'hard reality' of it.

He continued: "There's a revisitation of that with Joe in the second episode of the second season, where you get to see a bit more of the hard reality of what he did to her. Whereas you're sort of, for better or worse, mercifully saved from seeing that in the first season.

Fans Are Demanding That Penn Badgley Keeps His Beard For You Season 3 Filming

"That always haunts me, thinking of Beck. It's like, 'You really did that in the first season, and we're still going, and people really like this guy?!' That's disturbing. In his mind, she's not even dead."

If you've not seen it yet, the show is about Joe Goldberg (played by Penn Badgley) who meets aspiring writer Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) - for Joe, it's 'love at first sight' and he quickly becomes obsessed with Beck, stalking her online and in real life. He then goes to some pretty extreme measures to make sure that he gets into her life.

When the first season hit screens earlier this year, fans were gripped, with many claiming it was the 'creepiest' show ever.

Taking to Twitter, one distressed viewer wrote: "You on Netflix... creepiest show I've seen in a long while."

A second said: "Started watching You on Netflix last night and it's the creepiest show I've watched in a while. Pretty good so far, has a little bit of a Dexter vibe to it, but has me hooked."

A third person put: "You on Netflix is by far the creepiest and weirdest show on there. Weirdly enough, it makes you want to keep watching til it's over."

"The show You on Netflix is literally the best show and creepiest show all in one," added another.

There is no set release date for You season two as yet.
