Amanda Bell from Examiner interviewed Carlo Dusi about Little Ashes and asked him, amongst other things, about his involvement in Rob’s selection as Salvador Dalie and what made Rob perfect for the role.  This is what Carlo had to say:

“Robert had been on my radar for some time, as I had actually got him to read for a role in a pilot for a feature film that I made in 2006, and while he was too young for that particular role I had already been extremely impressed by his screen presence and his acting ability. When our dates for the shoot of Little Ashes were confirmed and we went back into the market to find our Salvador Dali’ in Britain, he was immediately one of our shortlist, and his reading for the role left us all in no doubt that he was the right person for the role.  Of course no-one could have imagined at the time how his career would have soared so soon after our shoot, but we could all tell that there was a very special quality to him, as well as huge talent and integriy as an actor. 

Finally, Robert is himself an incredibly intense, artistic and complex character whose intelligence immediately tapped into both the insecure side of Dali’s personality as well as his flamboyance, and the arc that he managed to create for Dali’s journey during the film is a real testament to his craft as an actor.”

You can read the full article here.  Well Carlo, it’s good to see that someone other than a screaming fangirl is singing Rob’s praises.

    “there was a very special quality to him, as well as huge talent and integrity as an actor”

    I particularly liked this bit. “Integrity” is exactly the word that I was always looking for to describe Rob’s attitude on and off screen.

    I am really happy to see Rob get the recognition he deserves.

    Thanks for posting this, Maria :)!
