What are some of the film projects that you have been in during your career?

 

I've acted in Próxima, a sci fi feature film directed by Spanish director Carlos Atanes. I've also worked in a documentay with another Spanish director, Karlos Alaustrey, Roca Bon or the Search of the Sublime. I have a acted in many short films and I'm a photograpy model too.

 

Do you have a favorite among these?

 

Working with Carlos Atanes was very special, I loved it. But there is also one short film I adored doing called Teseos. It was directed by another Spanish director, Manuel Nielsen. It can't be seen yet, as it's in post production.

 

A least favorite?

 

Not really... every new project gives me a new perspective on my job and so, every project is positive for me.

 

Anything new in the works?

 

I'm going to start shooting a TV pilot very soon... I'm very excited about it!

 

How do you view the state of Spanish cinema today?

 

Well, there's the bad economy... and Spanish directors rely too much on State funds. I think that it's important to create a film industry, like the ones than can be found in other countries, based on private capital. I think that slowly, directors are being conscious of that.

 

Do you have favorite Spanish actresses or actors from the past that you admire?

 

Nuria Espert is amazing... I think that she might definitely be the one.

 

Where did you study acting?

 

I didn't really study acting, meaning that I don't have a degree or a diploma, but I studied the International Baccalaureate, and IB is very strict about including arts in education, so I started studying drama ever since I was fourteen years old. When I finished high school, I went to the Complutense University of Madrid, where they had a drama group. I entered the group and stayed with them for two years. After finishing my studies (Audiovisual Communication), I did a master's degree on television presenting, which involved a lot of drama. I then got accepted in a theater company and I'm still there. I've been studying Meyerhold and Bertold Brecht techniques for more than five years.

 

You also speak a number of languages ...

 

Yes My father was a diplomat, and my whole family lived in Vienna and Luxembourg during quite a number of years. I learnt French, English and a little bit of German. Languages are extremely important in the acting business.

 

Do you have a web page where people can contact you?

 

Of course!!! http://www.beatrizurzaiz.com

 

Do you ever attend international film fests or fan festivals?

 

In 2006, the whole Próxima team attended Fantasporto, the international sci fi Oporto film festival because Próxima was being shown there. It was a fantastic experience.

 

Do you have any interesting behind the scenes stories to tell concerning your career?

 

When shooting the last scenes of Próxima, we had to do them in a chroma studio. The owners wanted to kick us out because they said that time was over and they had to close the place. It was supposed to be such a serene scene and we had to rush through it... I don't know how it turned out to look so good!

 

Is there any particular director you prefer to work for?

 

I like directors who respect the script writers. Once one has a good script, a very good movie can come out, but no good movies can come out without a good script. I also prefer to work with directors, who, as I said before, rely on private funding rather than on State funding.

 

When it comes to directors do you prefer someone who tells you everything to do you prefer a director who allows you as an actor to improvise on the script?

 

Well, it's a mixture of both ideas. I like a director who directs me closely, but I also like to be able to create my own character. I don't like improvising on the text, though...

 

What sort of roles do you prefer as an actress?

 

Don't ask me why but I like dark intense tormented roles... for example, the woman who hasn't been able to get over the fact that her son died because of her, even though it was an accident and now she is absolutely tormented and obessed about it... I know that it's a bit exaggerated, but that's what I like... I find it easier for me to do drama than comedy!

What are your other interests outside of acting?

 

I love going to the cinema, biking, spending time with my family, petting my cats... I'd rather stay at home and watch a good film than go out clubbing... which of course, doesn't mean that I don't go out once in a while!!!!! But I'm quite shy and reserved, so...

 

Any closing comments?

 

Thank you so much for this wonderful interview! I really hope that I can continue living of my passion and that the projects become bigger and bigger! Thanks again.

 

And thank you for the interview!
