You’re originally from Brazil. You live in L.A. now. Did you miss the warm weather while you were shooting up in the Arctic?
Absolutely. “Arctic” was originally set on Mars, but then we heard about “The Martian.” Shooting in Iceland was good for the film, but not for me as a Brazilian man.
Your leading man, Mads Mikkelsen, told Variety last year it was the most difficult shoot he’s ever done. Why do you think that is?
He’s in every frame of the film and understood the character so well.
