James D'Arcy: "We must remember tragedies like this"
By JAVIER ESTRADA Updated: 08/09/2016 17:19 pm (Translated from Spanish)
He is having participated in films of great global impact as Master & Commander or Hitchcock (which gave life to Anthony Perkins) and cult series ( Broadchurch ), James D'Arcy (London, 1975) stars in his first Spanish film. In Gernika , English plays Henry, a journalist covering the Spanish Civil War and reminiscent of George Steer, the British reporter who told the world in his chronicles what happened there.
What did you know about the bombing of Gernika before shooting this film?
I am ashamed to say that I knew almost nothing. I will even admit that he had not seen the famous painting that Pablo Picasso painted until I did not read the script. I think this film honors what happened to many people and sheds light on those facts.
But you will have learned something ...
During filming, my castmates and I had the privilege of meeting a few survivors. I was surprised them the glint of their eyes and they seemed alive. Even after contemplating a tragedy of these dimensions.
Do you think Gernika possible that this story will never be forgotten?
Absolutely. We must remember such terrible tragedies like this. From them you can learn a lot for our future.
How was the experience of shooting on the orders of a Spanish director and Koldo Serra?
Koldo is a true movie lover. I might even say that its most prominent feature is the staff almost encyclopedic knowledge he has of the Seventh Art. It is one of the directors who has more expertise. Every time we shot a scene you saw how excited him what he was doing. It is one of those people who love their craft.
Did you ever think you'd work in a Spanish production?
I was very excited when I was invited to participate in a Spanish film of such a large scale like this. Luckily I played my character in English. My Spanish is terrible and just had to say anything in that language!
Gernika film frame, Koldo Serra.
How do you definías Maria Valverde, his costar?
Mary is a lovely and talented partner, but also a friendly, helpful and very funny. I think you can not ask for anything more than a star like her (laughs). It has been a pleasure working with him.
You have participated in several period films. What are you most interested in this genre?
Nothing special. Actually, I've always looked for stories that have heart. And that is something that quite often occur in period films. Since I was little I have always loved to pretend. I guess I got lucky and somehow became that fun at work! (Laughs).
