For his role as Churchill John Lithgow has said that the makeup process was remarkably uncomplicated and only took about 20 minutes to complete for each session. Apart from a wispy wig, a "plumpers" plate had to be attached to his back teeth in order to accentuate his jowls, and tight collars were used to 'force' the characteristic Churchill 'double chin'. This process was overseen by Ivana Primorac. Coincidentally Primorac and her team won the BAFTA for Best Makeup on Gary Oldman as Churchill in Darkest Hour (2017).
John Lithgow as Churchill is 6'4" tall, however Churchill was in reality only 5'8" tall.
