“Instinct” star Carice van Houten says she had to “dig deep within” herself to play her character in the drama, in which she plays a prison therapist who falls in love with her patient, a serial rapist.
“The role is not, per se, very sympathetic and it’s a challenging role because there is no way you can hide behind anything,” van Houten told TheWrap’s Steve Pond at the Toronto International Film Festival. “It’s so raw, so I had to dig deep within myself and I liked that. It’s a very complex, very layered character. I was very hungry for something like that again.”
