性格俳優と呼ばれるのが好きだ。

ただいま故郷のサスカトゥーンで映画"Ferocious"撮影中のメインキャスト、 Amanda Crewさん、Michael Eklundさん、Katie Bolandさん、そしてコーツさんの4人のインタビューです。


Planet S : And... Scene, Saskatoon!
コーツさんの分だけペタっとな。
他の方のインタビューのネタにも登場しておりますので上のリンクからどうぞ。



PLANET S: So how did this thing get started?

KIM COATES: That’s absolutely none of your fucking business, Nathan (laughs). As soon as I was sent the script two or three months ago, I said it was something I really wanted to do, but I didn’t know if I could because of timing concerns. When I figured out it was all going to work, I was thrilled to find out we were going to shoot it here in Saskatoon, my hometown. We need this — Saskatchewan is like the most robust economy in all of Canada right now, but we need to do an even better job with movies and television shows. I’m proud to be part of this film.


PS:Do you consciously try to work in Canadian or Saskatchewan film in order to vitalize the industry at home?

KC: Good question. No, I don’t — it’s all about the script for me. I’ve done about 50 movies now, and it’s always all about the script. I say no a lot more than I say yes. So when I find out it’s in my province, in my city and with people who I know already, it’s the icing on the cake.


PS:You’ve worked on some huge films. Are there any frustrations with working on a small film like this?

KC: These are all great questions. Let’s just say this. [With] Black Hawk Down, there were days and days where we did an eighth of a page — meaning the scope of what Ridley (Scott) was trying to do on that film, and the camera angles, the money that we had on that picture, was something that little films can’t even imagine. What it took with the helicopters, the Humvees, the Deltas, the Rangers and the hundreds of extras — the scope of a film like that, it’s unfathomable to small movies. Small movies like this, the frustrations are, perhaps, that you’re shooting a little too much in the day — money, time constraints, you perhaps have to shoot a little more in a day than you wanted to. That’s the only frustration with smaller films.


PS:Amanda mentioned that you give off a bit of a mentor figure. Do you consciously try to do that?

KC: Aww, that’s sweet, that’s really sweet that she would say that. I know that I certainly had some older actors that I looked up to when I was younger. I take that as a compliment. I don’t go out of my way to pull them aside and say, “Guess what I was doing when I was in grade 12”. No, I never do that. If I’m there and they want to ask, I’m there for them, and I want to learn from them too. I’ve been doing this stuff for years now, hopefully I’ve learned some stuff that I can share, especially when they’re as talented as the kids I’m working with on this film.


PS:What do you think when people label you as a character actor?

KC: I like being labelled as a character actor. The only thing I don’t like is when people are like, “Oh, you’re always the bad guy”. I do play a lot of dark characters, because I do them well, and I’m proud of that — and they’re the best-written characters. But I love doing all types of characters. But my face is my face — I’m not going to be cast as that friendly guy next door. That’s okay with me, because that’s the greatest compliment, being called a character actor. Kevin Costner, a great friend of mine, is a leading man, but he wishes he could be more like me. And sometimes I wish I could be more like him. It’s acting: I love being different characters all the time, so I don’t mind being called a character actor at all.



たまにはのほほんとした役も見たいんだけど、癖のある役が好みというなら仕方がない(笑)
ま、どんな役でも見ちゃうんですけどね。

そか、結構取捨選択してるのか・・・・・・。

カナダ出身の俳優、Kim Coatesさんのファンブログ的な物の筈ですが情報量が少ないのでブレ気味です(涙)


映画はホラーとコメディ以外なら何でも観ますよー。
あ、ネタバレはいつも全開要注意。
おまけに日本語が壊れています。

ありがとうございますv
