Your upcoming movie Deep Shock - in a few words, what is it
going to be about, and what can you tell us about your character?
character is Sarah Taylor, the youngest of three sisters. She still has
not overcome the death of her grandfather and one of her sisters. This
will have consequences I can’t reveal yet. Join us in this wonderful
journey we will go on in Deep Shock!
will you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of Laura
Toledo will we find in Sarah Taylor?
is a very deep and complex character. I think it is very interesting to
work on her. She is different from me, because, fortunately, I didn't have
these kind of experiences.
did you get involved with the project to begin with, and what can you tell
us about your director Davide Melini [Davide
Melini interview - click here]?
Davide contacted me, I read the script and really found it quite
interesting. I have never worked in a horror movie, and I'm really happy to
do it now. I appreciate when a person focuses on a project from scratch
and without help. I have to add that I’m worried a little bit and at the
same time, I'm curious about the possibility to work with Davide. I think
he's a very talented director from whom I can learn so much.
crowdfunding campaign for Deep Shock has just begun. Any
message to the audience?
help us!!! Support this project because there is much love and enthusiasm
in it. We have a great team behind the film. They are professionals who
really want to make this project a big success. You can donate here:
projects beyond Deep Shock you'd like to share?
I’m working on a theatrical project, but I can reveal nothing yet. I’m
very happy about it and I hope I can tell everybody something more very soon.
got you into acting to begin with, and did you receive any formal training
on the subject?
think it is rather a necessity, a need to tell stories and make public
trip with that story. Each of us sometimes needs to dream and relax... to
escape from everyday life. My work and of course my family are the only
things that make me happy. I cannot be without work! I know very well I cannot
stop to study, because I believe that an actor has to train and keep on
training. I study and I learn every day.
Can you still remember your first time
in front of a movie or TV camera, and what was that experience like?
remember very well the first time I worked in a TV series. Although it was
not the first time that I was in front of a camera, because my career
started when I was a kid, I remember I was on set at 6 am, without knowing
anyone. It was the scene where I was in bed with my husband (an actor I
had never seen before) and I had to be relaxed. It was an awkward scene and
suddenly my leg was shaking and I could not control it… hahaha.
talk about your involvement in the movie La
Herencia Valdemar for a bit, and about your character in it?
was a very good experience, where I worked with actors from whom I learned
a lot. I have great memories… I remember the advices that Paul Naschy [Paul
Naschy bio - click here] gave me, Paco Maestre battles, all the funny moments with Daniele
Liotti… I was playing Belle Gunnes, a woman who murdered her husbands
and then burned herself. It’s a historical figure and it was the first
time I worked on a character different from the usual.
film and TV work of yours you'd like to talk about?
Feeling lucky ?
any of my partnershops yourself
for more, better results ?
The links below
will take you
every job I did, I carry something with me. In each one of them I have
things to say... Maybe my work at the TV series Águila Roja because
the feeling with my colleagues was very strong. We did a very good job and
I will never forget it.
the years, you've also done quite some stagework, right? So what can you
tell us about your career as a stage actress, and how does performing on
stage compare to acting in front of a camera?
like theater more, because it has nothing to do with the camera work. The
moment is unique and unrepeatable, because the audience is there with you.
It is one of the most beautiful things that an actor can live.
(and indeed actors) who inspire you?
Streep is one of my references. She always does a precise and concrete job
and puts the heart into what she does
struck me very deeply, and than I cannot forget The
Sleeping Voice and The Green
... and of
course, films you really deplore?
I cannot answer that,
because when I don’t like a movie, I forget it immediately, hahaha.
Your website, Facebook, whatever else?
can find me on my official website
(www.lauratoledo.es). I’m also on Facebook
and Twitter (https://twitter.com/lauratoledo8).
Anything else you are
dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?
want to watch movies, listen to music, go to the theater... and art will
disappear if the Government does not support it. Thank you for supporting
for the interview!
Thank you for this
opportunity! Thanks, thanks and thanks!!!
