You may know him better as Westley, the swashbuckling man in black from The Princess Bride. Elwes along with other stars from the film wrote the book, “As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the Princess Bride.”
“I always get asked by the fans ‘was it as much fun making this film as it was to watch,?’ and I always tell them it was more fun,” said Elwes. “So I wanted to share with them not only how much fun I had but we all had. It’s really a love letter to the fans”.
Elwes has been overwhelmed with the response the book has gotten from fans, even making the New York Times Best Seller List.
“Whole families come up to me with their 1987 VHS, its an extraordinary, beautiful thing. I call it the gift that keeps on giving,” said Elwes.
