On working with Von Trier, Slater had the following to say:
“Lars is a complete gentleman. It’s great to be on a set with someone who has such a loyal and talented team. The majority of his crew are people he has worked with over the past twenty years. They love him and I understand why. It’s lovely as an actor to get opportunities a few times in your career to work on a truly special project with a director and leader who really understands his material and is able to convey what he wants so concisely.”
