Edgar Ramírez Speaks Five Languages and Has One Peculiar Habit.

To portray the Panamanian boxing legend Roberto Durán in “Hands of Stone,” Edgar Ramírez learned how to throw a punch — and to take one.

“I needed to go through the struggle of becoming a fighter,” Mr. Ramírez said. “I needed to feel that through my body in a very physical, raw way.”

Jonathan Jakubowicz’s biopic follows Durán from the mean streets of Panama City into the ring in North America, where in 1980 he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) for the world welterweight title.

And Robert De Niro, who 36 years ago starred as the boxer Jake LaMotta, plays Durán’s American trainer Ray Arcel. “To have ‘Raging Bull’ in your corner is a dream come true,” Mr. Ramírez said.

A former executive director of a Rock the Vote-like nongovernmental organization, the Venezuelan-born Mr. Ramírez has played some famous fellow countrymen — among them, Simón Bolívar in “The Liberator” and Carlos the Jackal in “Carlos.” More recently, he starred opposite Jennifer Lawrence and Mr. De Niro in “Joy.” And this fall, he’ll play Dr. Kamal Abdic in the hotly anticipated “The Girl on the Train,” alongside Emily Blunt.

In a recent interview in New York, the “single but hopeful” Mr. Ramírez, 39, who speaks five languages (Spanish, German, English, French and Italian) and is based in Panama, talked about uncovering a character’s many faces and his peculiar habit. These are edited excerpts from the conversation.

What’s required to play a boxer?

To portray not only a boxer but a boxer like Roberto Durán, I needed to understand all the difficulties and the pressures of the sport itself. Panamanian boxing is very musical. It feels almost like they’re dancing. I trained to salsa music — that’s how Durán used to do it.

What physical shape did the role require?

This is a sport that is more about strategy and the power of your mind than about the strength of your body. Because a fight, you win it or you lose it in your head.
