What attracted you Naive?
I clearly remember having dinner with Uri, when he only had a few small bibles per chapter. Oriol is my friend. He is a director I admire. He has given me many benefits in my career, such as frustration, I trust him very much from the first moment I told him: “Uri, if you tell me to come, I will leave everything.”
As for Mat, the interesting thing is that he has worked on the role for ten years. Participated in the end-of-term party since his twenties. He accidentally killed a boy and went to jail for four years. We will see those four years, we will see the next few years, and the feeling of starting from scratch.
All characters are marked with their past.
Interestingly, when building Mat, I did some introspection work and went back to the early 1920s. I must get rid of the past and look for the energy I had when I was young. I did consider how your life will change.
It happens to all of us, some things will leave a deep impression on you, and will always be with you. All the factors that shape your personality can completely change you. Take Matt as an example. In the first few episodes, he was an uncomfortable person because the past would eat him up.
Home, practitioners, you must not kill, right now Naive. Do you like darker, more psychological characters?
I’m not looking for thrillers because I am comfortable. This has to do with intuition and the project that made me fall in love. The fact is that I am looking forward to doing comedy. A crazy comedy, a romantic comedy, a romantic drama…I can add some oxygen to it, because these are really very psychological roles and they are heavy.
Similarly, comedy is very complicated, and it produces the same or greater headaches than thrillers. This is a good route, you can stop or go downhill quickly. But yes, I like it very much. In recent years, my life has been horrible, and I hope it will be comedy next.
