Bill Skarsgård made a splash when he played Pennywise in 2017’s film adaptation of Stephen King’s IT, and he didn’t stray far in the aftermath. Skarsgård plays a vital—and mysterious—role in Hulu’s CASTLE ROCK, an original drama based on the terrifying town that played a key role in many of King’s stories.

But understandably, Skarsgård was initially a bit hesitant about signing on to another King project so close to IT. “I was a little bit reluctant to [join the show]—everything was very secretive about this project,” Skarsgård told reporters before the show’s Comic-Con panel. “I was reluctant because I was like, I had just done something in that world, and I don’t know how that interferes with that IT narrative. But as soon as they allowed me to read the pilot, that all changed. I fell in love with the show; I thought it was an amazingly strong pilot.
