Edgar Ramirez is dashing in his feature for the December 2012 issue of Da Man magazine, out on newsstands now!
Here’s what the 35-year-old actor had to share:
On preparing for his role in the upcoming film Libertador: “I tried to read and research as much as possible on Bolívar. I tried to pour all of that research into the brilliant character that the writer has created for the movie. I rehearsed and trained a lot. I trained for sword fighting, horseback riding, fighting while riding horses. It was a very demanding rehearsal and shooting schedule. I also tried to put aside the burden of portraying such an influential character in Latin American history. I tried not to let that pressure affect the unfolding of the performance. He is the most important historic figure in Latin America so everyone has a different idea of who Bolívar was. I tried to listen to my director and follow my instincts and tried to put that pressure aside and not affect the enjoyment of portraying such an important and fascinating character.”
On what causes he likes to support: “I stand up against violence and that’s why I try to help in any way I can with Amnesty international and their fight to strengthen human rights all over the world. In the case of United Nations Children’s Fund I believe every child represents a new opportunity to rewrite a better history in the world. If we strengthen the children’s rights then we can protect them and potentially protect the men and women that can help to make the world a better place. What we are doing is healing humanity. If we are able to protect and deepen their defense of children’s rights we can help to heal humanity. It gives us an opportunity to write a better history for humanity.”
On what he likes to do when he isn’t acting or doing charity work: “I try to spend time with my family and friends and just relax and sleep. I try to catch up on reading books that I haven’t gotten a chance to and watching movies. I also have a furniture design shop that I try to dedicate time to.”
