Popular Irish actor Barry Keoghan recently revealed that the popular “grave scene” in Saltburn was improvised on the day of filming and didn’t appear in the film’s original script. In an interview with Variety, the actor was asked how he felt shooting some of the scenes in the film. Barry plays the role of an Oxford University Student, Oliver Quick. The film has scenes that will make audiences squirm in their seat. Keoghan revealed, “I’ll do anything once that moves the story forward and if there’s a right reason for it creatively, I’m not going to do something because it’s out there or for the ‘wow’ factor.”

The Grave Scene

The scene that appears towards the movie’s end sees Oliver (Keoghan) visiting Felix’s (Jacob Elordi) grave plot. Oliver lies on top of the grave sobbing before he undresses. Once he strips naked, he begins thrusting into the ground.
Expounding on the cemetery scene, Keoghan said, ” On paper, he wasn’t written to do that. But I wanted to see what happened, and where I would take it. I wanted to be confused and let my body lead the way. “

“…What am I doing? How can I get closer? It’s trying to find that new level of obsession and trying to level up on the obsession. It’s quite sad because he didn’t even know what to do. He’s a lost boy who’s confused and doesn’t know what he’s chasing.”
Emerald Fennell, the film’s director told the Entertainment Weekly last month that Keoghan’s character was just meant to only kiss and use his fingers to penetrate the grave. Emerald said that on the day of shooting the film, she told the actor that he would unzip.
The Saltburn scene has a lasting impact on its star. According to Keoghan,  “I can’t look at graves anymore the same way. Do you know what I mean? They won’t allow me into graveyards actually. They’ll see me coming. They’ll be like, ‘Nah, nah.’ Especially if I arrive with no clothes on.”Saltburn premiered in theatres in November starring Alison Oliver, Richard E. Grant, Rosamund Pike and Carey Mulligan.
