Day-lewis Puts Historic House Guards On High Alert
Daniel Day-Lewis felt all eyes on him while he was shooting THERE WILL BE BLOOD at California's historic Doheny Mansion - because guards wouldn't let him out of their sight. The Irish actor's character in the film is based on real-life turn-of-the-century oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny, and producers decided to shoot parts of the film at his home. Day-Lewis says, It's overseen by the Doheny trust, and the Doheny trust employs a very large army of people in extremely neat uniforms to watch every God damn move that you make in the place. I don't know what they thought we were doing in there, but they seemed quite disturbed by the whole thing.
