Danielle DeLaite interviews Edgar Ramirez for his role in the remake of Point Break.
All this week we’ll be running a series of interviews for Point Break, Ericson Core’s retelling of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 cult classic.
Today we catch up with Édgar Ramírez who reveals that he has taken up rock climbing, surfing and snowboarding following his six months of being involved in extreme sports for the making of the film.
He consulted with extreme athletes to research the character he plays in Point Break, and here he talks about the film asking people to take full responsibility for their choices in life whether, like Bodhi, they are subversive choices … or not.
At the pinnacle of his career in Hollywood he speaks to Joseph Pisano in Agenda Éxitos.
Comments on his participation in American movies Point Break and Joy: “For me as a Venezuelan and Latin American, the film is received so enthusiastically excited me a lot.”
He also indicated it gets nervous to promote two films, but is very proud of them. He spoke of the emotion he felt working with great actors and directors of the big screen: “It has been amazing experience,” he said.
Edgar talks about his work as a producer with director Spielberg in the film “The Girl on the Train” and support as executive producer on the film “From Beyond” with the Venezuelan director Lorenzo Vigas.
Listen to the full interview by the Circuito Éxitos.
Now available on the web the first image of the cast and crew of ‘The Girl On The Train’ film adaptation of the novel by the British writer Paula Hawkins directed by Tate Taylor (“The Help”) and produced by Steven Spielberg, whose premiere in cinemas is scheduled for October 7, 2016.
In the photo are Edgar Ramirez (who plays Dr. Kamal Abdic) with Spielberg, Taylor, Rebecca Ferguson and Haley Bennett.
The cast is made up of Emily Blunt, Luke Evans, Junstin Theroux and Allison Janney. Unlike the original story will be set in the United States and not in London.
“Both are really meaningful to me. Both are fundamental emotional experiences to me,” said Ramirez in an exclusive interview with Latin Post.
Both movies coming out on the same day is a coincidence and a challenge for the actor as he has had to split his time promoting both films and making sure to give each project the same time.
“It is very unique. At the beginning I felt very torn because it’s like who do you love more? Dad or Mom?” he said. “Of course it’s not the ideal situation because you want to give your full attention to one thing. But I also try to make the best out of its situation and it’s a very unique moment and I’m trying to enjoy it. All I can say it’s like double feature for Christmas day.”
In “Joy,” Ramirez was working with David O. Russell and Jennifer Lawrence for the first time, an experience he relishes.
