Kwanten studies Manson for new movie

The Aussie star admits he thought he knew the Manson story but has come to realise most of the information he had on the sick killer was either bogus or a stretch of his own imagination.

He tells WENN, “I’m discovering that the little that I knew about him was amplified by my imagination and I became carried me away to places that weren’t necessarily based in fact.

“I think a lot of people have done that with Manson, so it’s interesting to sort of go in and realise why he had such a collection of followers.”

And one of Kwanten’s big realisations about the real Manson is the serial killer’s height, or rather lack of it: “He’s a lot smaller than me; he was only 5’2” or 5’3”.”
