McTeer plays Hubert Page, a house painter, in this drama directed by Rodrigo Garcia. Page befriends Albert Nobbs (Glenn Close) after being hired to do some work at the hotel where Nobbs is living as a man in order to make a living as the hotel waiter. Co-starring Mia Wasikowska.
For Albert Nobbs, we prepped for ages, sort of on and off and in our heads, and then had the physical transformation. We rehearsed for a good couple of weeks. Albert Nobbs was more like rehearsing a stage play in the sense that you’re really creating a character and you’re creating something that is very different from yourself that you then bring more or less defined by the time you start doing it.
