Norton Explains His Uncredited Role In Kingdom Of Heaven
EDWARD NORTON decided his role as a leper monarch in recent blockbuster KINGDOM OF HEAVEN should be uncredited because he wanted to bolster the sense of mystery surrounding the masked character.
The twice-Oscar nominated actor believed his part as KING BALDWIN in the historical epic had to be as low key as possible, because it would benefit the characterisation of ORLANDO BLOOM's lead role.
Norton tells British magazine Empire, "I didn't want to be billed because Orlando Bloom's character keeps hearing about him.
"There's this anticipation, this big mystery about him. It's the whole point.
"And it was a free trip to Morocco!"04/08/2005 10:31
