“It was the make-up challenge that comes along maybe once or twice in a generation: turning one of Hollywood’s best-known actors into a recognizable historical figure. In this case, it was transforming Gary Oldman into Winston Churchill for the biopic Darkest Hour—with that not inconsiderable challenge going to two-time Oscar nominee Kazuhiro Tsuji (Click, Norbit).” –Excerpt from our Darkest Hour coverage in Issue 130.

Want more? Of course you do! And Make-Up Artist magazine has it. Issue 129 discloses an exclusive face-to-face interview with Gary Oldman talking about the make-up process.
