COMPLICATED ACTION SCENE, SUCCESSFUL NIGHT SHOOT WITH A LOT OF EXTRAS & VERY FEW TAKES
Mari Paz Díaz at Huelva Buenas Noticias posted an interview today with Madrid-based actor Cristian Gamero, who worked for a few days last year filming Brian De Palma's Domino. Since then, Gamero has been working on a Netflix/Telemundo series in Mexico (Luis Miguel: la serie), where he has been gaining some recognition. He talks a bit about Domino in the early part of today's interview:
-Cristian, why did you choose acting?
-When I was a kid, I always locked myself in the room and, for hours, imitated the actors in the movies. I didn't know why, but I enjoyed it very much. Then, when I took my first acting class, I felt it was what I wanted to dedicate my whole life to.
-What have been your first jobs as an actor?
-The first job opportunity was in the series 'The Ministry of Time'. Then I shot two films, 'Domino', the latest film by Brian De Palma, and 'Sin ti', by the Alenda brothers, with Javier Rey and María León. And, last year, I started working in Mexico on the 'Luis Miguel' series of Netflix. And very happy.
- How did it feel working with Brian De Palma?
-It was the best experience of my life. I came across a casting that I did not expect at all. It was an incredible shoot and very special days for me. The action scene I had to do was complicated. We needed a specialist. When we finished, Brian De Palma told us that he was very happy with how the scene turned out, given that he was very worried about the little time he had. It was night and there were a lot of extras, not to mention the difficulty involved. So we had to solve it with few takes. And we got it. Therefore, the director congratulated us.
