Michael K Williams talks Voodoo assassin in ‘Assassin’s Creed’

Collider visited the London set of Assassin’s Creed along with a small group of reporters and published details on Saturday from their visit, speaking with star Michael K. Williams about his experience with the film, beginning with his character.

“His name is Baptiste, and that’s pretty much where we’re at right now with it, just all of us finding each other, learning to trust each other, and getting out of this hell hole that they have us imprisoned in so that we can become who we were destined to be.”

Williams stars alongside Michael Fassbender, who plays Callum Lynch, and he says of Jeremy Irons’ character: “Moussa is what we call the trickster. His whole thing when Cal comes into the prison is he sees him as the missing link to the puzzle and immediately realizes that we need to bring him into the fold, into the family, and to make him feel safe in this room full of crazies of some sort. So that’s Moussa’s relationship with Cal right now, bring him into the family, make him feel comfortable, and to let him know that we all need to get out of here.”

Williams went further: “…you don’t want to mess with Mr. Irons. Even in this place, it’s not a secret that we have powers so they know that Moussa plays with magic and they encourage that we do these things so they can siphon it out of our brains with the thing they stick in the back of our heads. They want our power on some level. So they give us little safe havens where they feel are safe to play with our gifts. It backfires miserably for them.”
