With very little depth in the script, he took inspiration for the character from a Van Gogh painting and the fake teeth and make-up job he gave the character. He talks about working on the TV movie The Hospital, for which he met with doctors to develop the character. He builds his characters from physical characteristics, staying attuned to the ways that fatigue or pain, or wearing certain kinds of glasses or having bad teeth, affect and shape the way a character would experience and interact with the world.
