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?
It's the story of Sarah, completely overwhelmed by the
deaths of her grandparents and sister, who becomes trapped in a strange
journey of apparitions and murders, apparently caused by her mind. Aided
by his sister Caroline, the priest Jonah and the psychologist Jonah Marius
Silver, she will attempt to solve this dark and intrigued mystery...
what extent can you relate to playing a priest, and do you consider
yourself at all a religious person? And what will you draw upon to bring
such a character to life?
If anything, I can relate to a priest in real life ... I donít
consider myself religious, but I have experience in this role: itís the
third time I will play one, although they are different each other.
Deep Shock's horror
theme - something you can at all relate to?
It is a tribute
to the Italian ďgialloĒ and in particular to Dario Argento (Deep
Red) and Mario Bava (Shock). Itís the intention of the
director to recreate the suspense of some 70ís Italian films, using
new technologies (3D, special effects, etc.).
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]?
It was a little bit
difficult for me in the beginning, because I've never shot a movie in
English. But after, when I read the script, I was hooked. The director has
a special sensitivity and ability in this genre.
projects beyond Deep Shock you'd like to share?
have two feature film projects and a TV seriesÖ but I canít talk too
much about themÖ
got you into acting to begin with, and did you receive any formal training
on the subject?
something I've loved since I was a kid. Iíve studied interpretation for 5
years with professor and director Manuel EspaŮa and I did several film
courses and acting in front of the camera.
Can you still remember your first time
in front of a movie or TV camera, and what was that experience like?
it was in a TV series and Iíve been very surprised about it. My first
experiences were in the theater and I have to say that working in a TV
series is completely different. I love both of them.
can you tell us about your film- and TV-work prior to Deep Shock?
worked in several movies and many TV seriesÖ the most important role I
did it was in Las Hijas de Danao by Fran Kapilla. This was my
first lead in a feature film.
the years, you've also done quite some stagework, right? So what can you
tell us about your career as a stage actor, and how does performing on
stage compare to acting in front of a camera?
Yes, I've worked in theater
for several years and itís completely different: Nothing to do with
movies or TV series, where you can repeat a scene.
(and indeed actresses) who inspire you?
Oh, too many namesÖ
started to list all of them, I could not finish this interview, hahaha.
I love so many movies that
itís impossible to select just a few.
... and of course, films you really deplore?
Hahahha, many of themÖ
Anything else you are
dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?
Feeling lucky ?
any of my partnershops yourself
for more, better results ?
The links below
will take you
have to say do not fail to follow this project, because you will
love the result. Iíve no doubt that Davide Melini will realize a great
for the interview!
Thank you too!
