First look: Edgar Ramirez in ‘Bright’

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ramirez’ character’s name is Kandomere, and he works for the FBI’s magic division. If you don’t recall, Bright revolves around a human cop, played by Will Smith, who partners up with the first Orc cop on the force, played by Joel Edgerton, to fight crime in a world populated by both humans and fantastical creatures. So like, a gritty version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them or what Middle Earth would be like if it existed in the modern day.

Bright is currently in production, and doesn‘t yet have an official release date either on Netflix or in theaters.

Edgar Ramirez on his stolen timepieces and his new top tier collection


“In life, it’s very dangerous to measure your personal worth by the things you have — it’s a trap. Objects need to have a meaning to you because you relate to them in an organic way,” says Edgar Ramirez, wearing his red-gold Cartier Drive. He was photographed Nov. 3 at Le Petit Paris in Los Angeles.

In 2014, Edgar Ramirez experienced what every watch collector fears most: His timepieces were stolen from his apartment in Caracas, Venezuela. “I had just come back from the movies and saw all of my things on the floor. I didn’t have a safe, and the watches were in my kitchen because that was the place I would put them on before I left the house. They stole the only valuable thing that I had, which was my watches,” says the actor, 39.

It wasn’t the loss of the objects that bothered Ramirez so much as the trespassing on the moments in his life that each piece represented. To Ramirez — who was studying to become a diplomat before he decided to pursue acting in 2002 — his growing watch collection was a mirror in many ways of his rise in Hollywood, which has culminated this year in high-profile roles in August’s Roberto Duran biopic Hands of Stone, October’s The Girl on the Train and the upcoming crime adventure Gold alongside Matthew McConaughey.
