He would then make a weird face, pull a t-shirt over his head and terrify his younger brother. The Bill Skarsgård Pennywise smile was thus not developed when shooting the movie but was something that he had practiced way before he began his acting career. Bill Skarsgård smile is very freaky and scary though in a thrilling way.
