September 6, 2016 by SERGIO ROOM for Hola! USA
In the film you play Marco Navas, a journalist for a media Portuguese, how was the process to get into your role?
What I cared about was the English accent, as we work with native actors, so it was an aspect that I worked pretty. In addition, much research on Guernica, documentándome about working journalists of the time and why were so curious special envoys to come to Spain.
Much of the filming has taken place in the Basque Country. You canary you are, are you going there a lot?
Yeah, actually my theater tours I have been almost always by the Basque Country, performing in places like the Palacio Euskalduna, for example. I have also been on the van to places like Sopelana. It is a land that I love, eat very well, people are really nice and nature is beautiful.
Gaztelugatze, scenario that will lead to visiting journalists from the film, is one of the most beautiful natural scenery in Spain, how has been rolling in it?
I was impressed. We stayed a few days in the area, up and down those stairs many times, so it's something I will not forget in a long time (laughs). The scenery well worth it , it's beautiful, one of the most special places I've ever been. There agree with much of the Spanish team, like Maria Valverde, Ingrid Garcia Jonsson, Barbara Goenaga ... and we had a great time . I have very good memories of the place, also ate really well.
A scene full of tradition is that of the Basque farmhouse Family Teresa, another of the protagonists of the film, a role played by María Valverde. What is special about a place?
The village where we shot is real, no props, and that made us to move completely to this time. It is a place steeped in history, in the film you have moments when you spend absolute tranquility to the war and also live in this village. The bombing was unexpected, so when you try to get into the skin of those who suffered will make your hair stand on end. Also here I met Irene Escolar, in a scene that I loved recording, because we danced and had a great time .
Of the places you've been during filming, what you recommend?
Of course, Gaztelugatze. It is a wild and magical corner of that I was hooked. And also Bilbao, which is a must - see city. There jokingly say that "the world is everything that surrounds Bilbao" and when you're in it you understand perfectly. Go to 'pots' (reeds) through the old town is a must, a classic that also did one day with all the equipment and also left me very good memories.
To what extent a scenario can influence the mood of the players?
It influences a lot. Being in a special place and think how they could smash you put in a position, especially thanks to a brutal special effects. But also the very nature of Bilbao you got into position, with rain and cloudy days. All that is around us affects us and places with a personality like bilbaína greatly influence the capital. In fact, the actors who came out were fascinated, especially with the food, because they said it was taxiing where they had eaten better (laughs).
Had they been before in Bilbao?
No, most do not. They were literally hallucinating. They also were delighted with the Guggenheim. I had been, but when you go back to rediscover it somehow. It is incredible to have in your country a museum and a colossal work of architecture.
The film has many allusions to Picasso 's Guernica. After the shooting, have you changed your perception of this world renowned work?
Yes, of course. I have done almost a thesis on the picture (laughs). The scene of the woman shouting at it marks my character and all the changes it undergoes in the film start from this point, which according to real, where she shouts to airplanes because shoot his son and one of them turns and kills her. Then there are many legends and many versions of why Picasso painted the picture, if he did or not thinking of Guernica, but anyway, what matters is what has generated, and that our history is known.
What would you say to someone who will see Gernika to the movies?
That will see a part of history, part of its roots. Which is one of the few films about the episode of Guernica that have been made and in which all who participate in it have done with the utmost respect.
After each shooting, do you have time to do some sightseeing after?
Depends how is the character, the movie ... With Gernika had time and could go to the beach ... That subway going to the beach I find amazing. I whenever I can I escape.
When do one in your land, the Canary Islands? We know that you feel like a production done there.
At the moment I roll over on the peninsula in the Canaries, but they are coincidences. In fact, the first film I did was in Tenerife , Six points on Emma. When match I'll be happy to return, Canary is one of the most beautiful places on the planet and when I call I'll be there.
