Baron Zemo in Cap­tain Amer­ica: Civil War

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Reviews - Matt May­tum

Did Civil War feel on a dif­fer­ent level to any­thing you’ve done be­fore?

yeah, it felt mas­sive. Ar­riv­ing on set I was shit-scared! It was like be­ing a 12-year-old when you’re sent to a new school, and you know it’s go­ing to be a big class. But I was wel­comed in such a gen­er­ous way – it didn’t feel like I was the new kid. In­stead, peo­ple re­ally em­braced me and were very gen­er­ous. even the reshoot was quite big – it was only a couple of days, but with that crew you’d shoot an en­tire film in europe!

What was it like work­ing with two di­rec­tors?

It’s in­ter­est­ing to fig­ure out who’s re­spon­si­ble for what. I would say Joe is al­ways closer to the ac­tors, and An­thony is some­times the over­view per­spec­tive. And there’s al­ways ref­er­ences where they had other films in mind. there was one se­quence, and it re­ally re­minded me of some­thing. then Joe said, “there’s this one mo­ment in The French Con­nec­tion…” I had the plea­sure to work with Quentin tarantino, who’s a mas­ter in mak­ing these ref­er­ences, and it re­minded me a bit of him.
