Y TU JABBÁ TAMBIÉN (2001)
Director of Photography: Emmanuel Lubezki | Director: Alfonso Cuarón
“I was in Budapest, shooting a different project. It was like 2AM in the morning, and I had to wake up at 5 to go to set. I got a call from Gareth Edwards, and he’s pretty dramatic so he says “Diego, welcome to Star Wars.” He gives you this amazing news, I started jumping, and he goes, “Wait, wait a second. You cannot tell anyone!” I go “What- what do you mean?” That’s like giving a kid a gift and saying “Yeah, this is your Christmas gift but you can just open it when you’re alone, you can never share it with anyone!” I went to the next morning to set at 5AM, with a huge smile like this. And I sit down in the makeup trailer and the makeup girl goes like, “Oh, what happened last night?” And I go like, “Um… uh… I got laid.” And then I start describing it, I needed to get it out! “Oh, it was the best time ever! It was at 2AM in the morning and it lasted ‘til 5 and I feel refreshed…” (x)
I wanted to make my character more natural and realistic. Although people expect the tone of the film to be fantasy, it actually is quite the contrary. It’s an intimate story that feels real. I think of all the Star Wars films released so far, Rogue One is the most real one, which is about the people. The characters are very similar to us. They are heroes with no powers. What they have is a conviction and desire to change reality — Diego Luna discusses his role as Captain Cassian Andor.
