What is the latest buzz around Netflix's 'The Good Nurse'?
Recently, director Tobias Lindholm revealed that he recruited real-life nurses, doctors, and paramedic to make things more authentic. He also noted that the decision was taken to make the performances of his lead actors more "naturalistic". While talking to The Guardian, he said, "Instead of hiring actors and training them to do so, we needed to surround our actors with the real McCoys … so that that could rub off on them and make their performances even more naturalistic. ctors are about communicating emotions. These real people … were able to be in the moment and do their job without telling us any other story. That’s quite different for an actor [who’s] always aware of [the] story."
