Your movie Beware - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

Beware is about a boy who was chained to a tree in the forest years ago, and left to die by his murderous father, but he survived. Then he wanders in the wilderness with the chains fused to his body. My character is one heck of an antisocial being, who seeks revenge for what his dad did to him.

 

How did you get involved in the project in the first place?

 

I attended the casting for the character of Gabriel; however, a few days later, the director (Jason Daly [Jason Daly interview - click here]) called me to offer the role of Shane. Thank God I booked it. It was very exciting for me, I almost could not believe it.

 


As I'm supposing you have never had any experiences that remotely resemble Shane's in Beware - how do you prepare for such a role, what do you draw from?

 

Once I had the script in my hands, I read it and loved it. To build the character of Shane, I started to analyze the reason why he killed his victims. I started thinking about what his thought-process would be like, how he walked, what were his motives and why would he act the way he does. Also, I pay particular attention to scenes where he puts himself in danger.

 

Quite honestly, how much fun was it to get in touch with your dark side for a while and chase a bunch of kids through the countryside?

 

LOL It was totally new to me. To give life to a murderer I needed to be in the dark side - I guess the opposite of what I am. I mean, I could not imagine what it would be like to live in the dark side for such a long time, but once the camera stopped rolling, we would go back to being ourselves and had a lot fun. I can say we all enjoyed it.

 

With Beware being essentially a slasher movie, is that a genre you can at all relate to?

 

I like that genre because I get the chance to study the psychology of the bad characters to understand why they do the things that they do. Those are very complex characters. Besides, that complexity its what gives adrenaline and suspense to this genre, I believe.

 

What can you tell us about the shoot itself and the on-set atmosphere?

 

The shoot was amazing -; it was done in a very professional way and they knew what they were doing and what they wanted. Besides, the atmosphere working with the crew was very enjoyable, it felt as if we were a big family.

 

A few words about your director Jason Daly [Jason Daly interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

Jason is one of the best directors I've worked for. He knows what you want and know how to get the most of all stakeholders. Working with him was a very nice experience, I learned a lot. We all worked together as the team that we were supposed to be - sometimes, we began shooting scenes late afternoon and often ended up shooting until like 5 in the morning. We didn’t stop ‘till everything was in perfect order.

 

at the Beware-premiere

Let's go back to the beginnings of your career: What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?

 

Well, I have taken many acting workshops in Mexico, Los Angeles and currently Miami where my current coach is the Oscar nominee Adriana Barraza.

 

Do you still remember your first time in front of a moviecamera, and what can you tell us about that experience?

 

That was when I was 16, I was an extra for a movie. They were rolling in my country. I was very impressed to see the camera, lights, a full production and all.

 

La Estafa

What can you tell us about your movie- and TV-work before and since Beware - and are there any future projects you'd like to talk about?

 

I played a role in a movie that was called La Estafa - my character was a lawyer. Also, I have worked on a couple of soap operas playing small characters for Telemundo Network (NBC). Two weeks ago, we started shooting a new movie called La Esfera de Marfil in Miami in which I’m the main antagonist,; a big drug dealer.

 

How would you describe your approach to acting as such?

 

From all the acting lessons and techniques learned, I took the ones that best worked for me. I focused on Shane’s past to understand his present. I understood his way of thinking and how he released all the anger and hatred.

 

Any dreamroles you'd just love to play, no matter how improbable?

 

I would like to play a United States President or any political person.
