I was surprised: “The Shining” star Danny Llyod in the “Doctor Sleep” trailer

By on March 23, 2021 0

Actor Danny Lloyd, who played young Danny Torrance in the 1980 Stanley Kubrick classic “The Shining”, says he’s surprised after watching the trailer for the “Doctor Sleep” sequel.

The original film starred Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance, a writer who agrees to become the caretaker of the Overlook Hotel in Colorado during his off season. Actor Shelley Duvall played his wife Wendy.

“Doctor Sleep,” directed by Mike Flanagan from “The Haunting of the Hill House,” follows adult Danny Torrance (played by Ewan McGregor), who struggles with alcoholism and faces the trauma of what happened to him when he was a child in the Overlook Hotel.

“I was surprised. It looked really good,” Llyod told The Hollywood Reporter of the trailer for the new movie.

“I was curious because there’s a fine line they have to cross with Stephen King and Stanley Kubrick. Looks like they’ve found a way to pay homage to both,” he added.

Llyod was five when he worked in the original and recalling the experience he said Kubrick was very protective of him on set.

“He wanted me to be scared, but he didn’t want me to be scared of anything. There were days when I wasn’t allowed on set because of something they were filming.” , said the actor.

Lloyd also revealed that he was not allowed to watch the film until he was a teenager.

The actor, who now works as a teacher at a community college in Kentucky, said many of his students still don’t know he starred in the film.

“I try to keep it low key. You have students of all ages. The younger ones don’t know and that’s the way it should be. But every now and then a student says something,” Llyod said. .

“Doctor Sleep,” also starring Rebecca Ferguson and Kyliegh Curran, will be released in November this year.
