I would tell you what it says, but I’d be lying 0ther than the headline is something along the lines of “Never Was I So Scared”.  So it look’s like one of Robert’s interviews has been translated in Metro Moscow.

Thanks Posh.

On Thursday in our box office there is “Lost City of Z” by James Gray, shown outside the competition at Berlinale.

On the eve of the premiere, we talked to the performer of the role of Henry Costin, who, along with the other hero – Fawcett – went in search of the legendary Eldorado.

Initially, Benedict Cumberbatch was to play the role of Colonel Fawcett, but when his wife became pregnant, he gave up on the project and the film was suspended for some time.

I was with the project from the very beginning and experienced many changes, including the actors, there were three.  If I remember it right, Brad Pitt was originally considered for the role of Fawcett.

What attracted you to do the project?

For nine years I dreamed of working with James Gray. It was absolutely the same for working on the film.

Does your character Henry Costin have a prototype?

This person is real, there was, however, in the film the fate of the hero, soon displays three people at once, since the real Costin participated only in two expeditions with Fawcett. In the book “Lost City Z” there’s a little bit about him, with a couple of his pictures. In the photo he has a mustache. I thought that with a mustache I would look ridiculous, so I grew a beard. And the director agreed with me.  Although generally during the First World War, it was forbidden for soldiers to wear beards.

The film does not show what happened to our hero when Fawcett and his son went to the last expedition.  So what about Henry?

When I agreed to this role, I thought :”Even then film I will spend two months in the jungle. “Robert Pattinson, actor, he  fell ill, picked up something in the jungle, his whole face was disfigured. Later, Henry was cured. So that in fact was a weighty reason not to go again to Amazonia.”

It was hard to be removed in the jungle?

This is pure madness! (Laughs) I remember when we filmed a scene on the river, a thunderstorm broke out. All local residents advised to leave. We were all: “Oh, how cool! You need to shoot soon! Same, so beautiful! ” And I’m in the first, everyone was convinced that we must continue to work. And suddenly the lightning struck probably about 4 metres from us.  When the shore was black, I was really scared!

And the crocodiles were?

Where without them! And this is not the same case where one can simply say- remove them. No one got an answer for anything. Surprisingly, no one got bitten – no crocodiles, no mosquitoes  … Probably, it was because  we were with Charlie Hunnam, were in woollen clothes all the time… (Smiling.) Horribly sweaty.

I will assume that you lost weight because of this?

If I’m not mistaken, then Charlie dropped 20 kg, and I – 15.

Will people who are accustomed to special effects in cinema appreciate the journey of Fawcett and Costin to the Amazon?

Good question. In film this is mentioned in passing,that the researchers went on an expedition with lots of people – in hundreds and hundreds. Fawcett took only two. This is madness! He did not know about this territory, he was just lucky that everyone survived in the first two expeditions, but not in the third.

Actors, like characters, forever on the road. Are you satisfied with the nomadic way of life?

Oh yeah! For more than three months I will not stay anywhere. I will spend the summer in Poland.

What projects are you on? Are you currently working?

Soon there should be two movies with my participation:”Good Time” a criminal drama about a bank robber, Connie and the comedy western “Damsel” with Mia Wasikowska.

About the film: “The Lost City Z”• The picture is based on the eponymous documentary bestseller by David Grann, who, incidentally, came out in Russia. The book was published by the publishing house “Azbuka”.• The picture tells about the expedition of Colonel Fawcett, a member of the Royal Geographical Society, which disappeared without a trace in 1925, in the jungles of the Amazon in search of the city of Z.• Director James Gray was born into a family of Jewish immigrants from Russia. In 1994, at the Venice Film Festival, he received “Silver Lion” for the film “Little Odessa”.
