APPRENTICE MATADOR SERGIO ROLDAN: "IT'S BEEN 3 HOURS OF INTENSE SHOOTING"
La Voz de Almería's Juan Antonio Barrios posted an article the other day about Sergio Roldán's experience filming a scene for Domino during one of the past week's night shoots in the bullring:
The novillero (apprentice matador) from Almería Sergio Roldán has lived a new experience with his participation in the film 'Domino', directed by Brian De Palma. On this occasion, the shooting has taken place in the Plaza de Toros de Almería and in full bullfighting festivities.
"It has been a new and great experience that I have lived participating in the film 'Domino', with a director of the stature of Brian De Palma and great actors," the Almerian novillero tells the VOZ.
At seven in the evening began the filming of the sequence where Sergio Roldán fights 'a bull' with a muleta. "Before the start of the shooting I was very nervous because I did not know what was going to happen. The moment I was told, I was calm. It has been three intense hours that we have been slowly shooting this sequence in the Plaza de Toros," recalls the Almerian novillero.
The tendido and grada of tier 8 is where the whole scene develops. Close to that stretch is where Sergio Roldán made his elegant and beautiful "bull" passes, with his suit of lights, while the public watched all the action developing, with stampedes of about 200 extras that participate in the scene.
"We have had to repeat the scene several times. It's been three hours of intense shooting. On arrival at the arena and before starting the shoot, director Brian De Palma greeted us. I also got to meet and talk with the actor who plays the role of terrorist (Ibrahim Goush), as well as the police who are after him. On this occasion, the actor told me that in America he works with horses and bulls. In the Plaza de Toros we were up until five thirty in the morning, after checking that everything had gone well," concludes Sergio Roldán, after remembering that it was the master Ruiz Manuel who called him and proposed his participation as a bullfighter in 'Domino'.
