“I think it’s really important to understand from a psychological perspective… the horrific nature of the trauma he experienced as a child,” Zachary expressed about his character’s appearance and transformation (via Variety). “If we as human beings don’t deal with trauma… and emotional wounds don’t get healed, they live in places in our bodies. So the oldest versions of Manx are these incredibly twisted and decrepit, locked-in expressions of what he didn’t face and what he didn’t process in his younger life. And he’s always reaching for something outside of himself because he never was able to cultivate a sense of contentment or a sense of fulfillment from within.”
