Interview with Amaury Nolasco from July 4, 2015, at La Quinta Golf
1. Did you enjoy today’s golf game?
I have just finished a game at La Quinta, but my results are nothing to brag about, so let’s just change the subject. Other than that, the game was great, the venue, very enjoyable, and I am blessed to be supporting this event for four years in a row along with my dear friends Eva, Maria, and Alina. Marbella feels like heaven.
5. What other projects are you currently involved in?
We were shooting criminal, an upcoming movie in London last year, starring Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, and Gary Oldman.
Criminal is an upcoming 2016 American-British action thriller film directed by Ariel Vromen and written by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg. The film is about an ex-con who is implanted with a dead CIA agent’s memories to finish an assignment. The story of the right man in the wrong body. In a last-ditch effort to stop a diabolical plot, a dead CIA operative’s memories, secrets, and skills are implanted into a former death row inmate in hopes that he will complete the operative’s mission.
6. What is an actor’s biggest fear?
This doesn’t apply to me anymore, and I hope it never ends.
7. When did you know that you would become an actor, and when did you?
A very good question, indeed! I wasn’t able to figure it out until I was 20. I was supposed to become a doctor, just like my mother, father, and brother. I used to study Biology and have a related degree.
I wasn’t looking to become an actor, it found me. One day at the beach, someone came up to me to ask whether I wanted to take part in one commercial projects; then came another one. Later, I knew what to do.
8. Who do you think who is most influential celebrity in the world (not a political figure)?
There are plenty of great influential people.
I don’t say this because she is my friend, but I truly believe that Eva Longoria is an exceptional person, not only because she is a philantropist, but because she manages everything from producing and directing to being involved in politics and acting. She always tries to help other people and to give back to other people what she has been given.
