Nieuws: Clayton Cardenas over zijn rol als Angel in Mayans MC
De Sons of Anarchy spin-off Mayans MC is in Amerika alweer toe aan zijn derde episode en ik moet je zeggen dat ik deze serie echt helemaal te gek vindt. Want de OMG's vibe die je in SOA had zit hier ook dik in. De website Collider had een interview met Clayton Cardenas over zijn rol als Angel, en daar van kan je nu hier onder een klein stukje lezen.
Collider: When this came your way, was it something you were immediately interested in because of the success of Sons of Anarchy and the connection between that show and this one, or was it something that you needed to dig into a little bit more?
CLAYTON CARDENAS: Right off the bat, I wanted it. I was drooling, when I heard about this. Being a fan of Sons, it was just so easy to wanna jump into this world, right away. The writing with Kurt Sutter is just amazing, and with what he and Elgin James created, they’ve made this beautiful world that us actors just get to play in and have fun. I would say that a majority of the actors will tell you the same thing. I don’t think it was a question for any of us, whether or not we wanted to do it. Right when everybody heard about it, this was something that you wanted to jump in with, head first.
I love that you go in and out of English and Spanish, throughout the episodes.
CARDENAS: I love that! Especially for Southern California Latinos, that’s how we grow up, in broken English households. We go in and out of English, all the time. That’s just how it is, in real life, so that was beautifully done. You don’t see that a lot on TV. You see creators wanting to appease the networks, and sometimes they just want it all in English, but then you watch it and you’re like, “That doesn’t feel right.” When you see something, like Mayans, that’s beautifully done, it’s all organic and it’s true to our people. It really is.
