Olivier Martinez Opens Up About His 'Texas Rising' Character: 'He's Good, He's Bad, He's Everything'

Olivier Martinez keeps it cool and casual as he arrives at LAX Airport to catch a departing flight on Tuesday (April 21) in Los Angeles.

The week before, the 49-year-old French actor suited up to attend the 2015 MIPTV Opening Party with his Texas Rising co-stars Ray Liotta and Bill Paxton to promote the upcoming History channel miniseries.

“What is interesting about General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna is that he’s a true history character, which I didn’t know obviously because I’m not very familiar with the world of Texas,” Olivier recently expressed about his character. “But I discovered through history books that he was a very fascinating character. Larger than life, charismatic, brave, irrational. I love to play these parts, I love to play characters with a lot of contradictions. He’s good, he’s bad, he’s everything.”

    He’s a second-tier (at best) actor who never really made it in Europe and whose only real claim to fame anymore is breeding with Halle Berry.

    won’t watch anything he’s in.

    Judging by the trailer I think he may be a stand out character. Curious to see his interactions with Emily West.

  • Frank Kozamer

    unlike lazy Gabriel he actually works for a living.

    Olivier is great. He is right that his character was full of contradictions , read about General Santa Ana and he was president of Mexico 5 times, a fascinating man and can’t wait to see Olivier in Texas Rising!

  • Angel

    Totally agree with you Frank, totally agree.

  • Angel

    Olivier is so very hot! Lucky Halle.

  • just saying

    that TV show is two years old and only now it’s coming out

  • Brooklyn

    It filmed late summer last year in Durango, Mexico. It’s an epic miniseries…it wasn’t filmed in a weekend. Programming is scheduled months (sometimes a year or more) in advance…this means most are filmed many months prior to airtime. I don’t get your point here. This miniseries has the largest ensemble of “big names”, ever cast in the history of television or film.
    As a side note, that video above is Olivier answering my personal question…brag :-)

  • Angel

    Your so lucky, Brooklyn! Wish Olivier would answer one of my questions. How did you get it to him?
