Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland:

Between cinema, television and theater, what do you enjoy doing the most?
I think everyone allows me to do different things. Television and cinema are very similar. My experience in TV has been much more in comedy, that’s why I think it’s so fun for me. I will always love the sets because I love being there and living the whole process. I’ve done it since I was nine years old and I love being in that world. I think the theater has helped me to be better. I have learned a lot and every time I do it with more confidence.

Do you have any favorite genre?
I love comedy. Making people have fun gives you life.

Let’s talk about the issues that will determine the cinema during this year: which do you think will be the most important during 2020? 
I think you’re right … many times the tone of the movies is defined by what is happening in the United States or in Hollywood. A few years ago journalism dominated, and I think there will be a lot about politics this year, because for them it is a year of elections. I haven’t done anything like that, particularly, although I think Escape from Pretoria has a bit of that.

How do you decide whether to take a project or not?
The story is always the most important, as is the character. Generally it is when I read something and I realize that I have not done anything similar, or that it would help me to explore in my acting work; something that is original and that I would like to see in the cinema. When I did Swiss Army Man, for example, I thought: “I will never be in a movie like this; it is unique”. Other times, the decision has nothing to do with the script but with the director.

If you could play any role, which one would you choose?
I don't know. There are books I would like to be in. I would love to be Winston Smith, 1984. He is a great character in a great story. My favorite book is The Master and Margarita, if there was a role for me in that story it would be cool. It's hard to say what I would like to be because the reason I like many characters has to do with the actor who played them, and I wouldn't like to say that I can do better than them. I have no intention of doing anything about Shakespeare, for example, and one of the reasons I would not like it is that I have seen many of my favorite actors play their characters and I know I could not do better.

You started acting from an early age, how do you think you have evolved since then?

When you are a child on the set you just stand and say what you have memorized. I never had a process to decipher the character. As I grew up in Potter I saw how other actors did it and tried to imitate them ... the process has been very gradual. When you are a teenager you are very aware of your own face and do not want to do anything weird; It's scary not to see you cool. Growing up, I have learned to accept my own natural rarity and maybe take it as something that will make me unique. In short, I think it's about that: to become less insecure.

What do you think makes you unique as an actor?
I think it would be better if the question was answered by people ... there are things in which I consider myself good, and many times it has to do with throwing myself to do things; there isn't something I don't try, I always like to try hard.
