Harry Melling reveals strange inspiration for his Edgar Allan Poe

Harry Melling has revealed he spent a lot of time watching the work of silent cinema legend Buster Keaton before taking on the role of Edgar Allan Poe in Netflix thriller The Pale Blue Eye. The 33-year-old said he's not sure this research had a direct and obvious impact on his performance, but it definitely informed aspects of the character. Melling plays a fictionalised young version of Poe in the movie, teaming up with Christian Bale's veteran detective Landor to investigate a murder at his secluded military academy. The Pale Blue Eye is available to stream on Netflix UK from 6 January.
