Despite his misgivings, Sturgess said that Bae won him over with her friendly nature. The Hollywood actor also added that language barrier was a concern for him from the get to.
“I was worried because we play lovers in the film and I wasn’t sure how we’d be able to show chemistry when we couldn’t communicate,” Sturgess said.
