David Tall Pine White, in costume for a scene depicting a meeting between King Philip and Rhode Island deputy governor John Easton, explains his role as language consultant. White also acts in the film. Though not a professional actor, he appears in a variety of scenes, including one in which he was wearing full war paint. “I felt like…it was 400 years ago,” he recalls. “I was just engulfed in it. I didn’t even know what I looked like, but I just felt something that was so strong.”
