Meet Javier Botet: The Actor Behind Some of Your Favorite Monsters
You've probably seen him—although you might not know it. The Spanish actor Javier Botet has appeared in Crimson Peak (2015), The Conjuring 2 (2016), It (2017), The Mummy (2017), and more. His long, lean physique (he's 6-foot-6 and 120 pounds) is perfect for his roles, which are usually monsters and other creepy characters. Botet was born with Marfan Syndrome, a genetic disorder that contributes to his physique and makes him double-jointed—all the better to craft some super-creepy movements. Learn more about Botet, and how he's living his lifelong dream of playing monsters, in the video from Great Big Story below.
