Actor Vas Sánchez talks about his participation in the movie Castle Falls
When he was chosen to play the character of George in the action / thriller film “Castle Falls”, actor Vas SÃ¡nchez screamed with everyone and knew it was “a really good fit”, this which made working on the film a great experience.
SÃ¡nchez, a comedian based in Atlanta, Georgia, said he received a casting notification for the film and submitted it with his agent.
âI really liked the role. I thought George was a really compelling and really interesting character in this kind of crazy thriller, action packed world. So I, I really, really tried when I auditioned, âhe said. “I gave the character a lot of life, and I think Dolph (Lundgren) and the writing team and everyone really responded to it.”
âCastle Fallsâ – which begins Scott Adkins, Dolph Lundgren, Kevin Wayne, Jim E. Chandler, Luke Hawx, Scott Hunter and Kim DeLonghi – is also directed by Lundgren and premiered in theaters, on demand and digitally on December 3.
âI think George was really a hard worker, like a hard working guy, and I work really hard in my life and but he also knows how to have fun and make friends and connect with humanity. And that’s what really attracted me about George’s, “said the 39-year-old actor.” He always joked, even though the world seemed a little dark, a little gloomy. George was always trying to find the right there. joy, and that’s me. Like, that’s what I do all the time. So I’m really drawn to George that way, for sure.
But working on a new film as the COVID-19 pandemic continues brings its own challenges.
âFirst of all, you have to get tested twice a day. So two tests a day. One on the nose and one with the prick on the finger. And again, that wasn’t the hardest challenge, obviously, because we want to be healthy. We want to stay healthy. But you know, that’s not normally part of the world of acting. But now that’s a lot, âsaid SÃ¡nchez, who can be seen on Netflix’sâ Cobra Kai, âAMC’sâ Better Call Saul, âand CBS’sâ MacGyver â.
âIf anything happened, if someone got sick, you had to quarantine in your hotel, stay in the room you were in and stay there. You can call for a pizza or a sandwich, but you can’t leave the room. So that was pretty interesting, âsaid SÃ¡nchez, from the mountains of western North Carolina.
SÃ¡nchez said that before the pandemic, when he was filming different cities for a role, he enjoyed exploring those cities and meeting people, which was not possible during the pandemic because he tried to be careful not to contract COVID-19.
âBut this time, you know, you really have to be careful, you really couldn’t get out and couldn’t overdo it. So it’s very, very relaxing and a lot of downtime. I read the script all the time everyday, just to see if I could find any other little things to play, âSÃ¡nchez said. âSo that was really interesting because other times I’ve been to other sets I’m usually all over town doing stuff. So it was definitely a little different. But on set everyone was so wonderful and professional and love taking those tests everyday without endlessly washing their hands. ”
In the 90-minute film, after decades of neglect, Castle Heights Hospital, a symbol of the city’s segregated past, has been filled with dynamite and is ready to be demolished. No one knows that a gang leader, now in prison, hid $ 3 million in cash he stole from rivals inside the abandoned building. Today, three desperate parties want the money: a blue collar veteran (Adkins) who finds him while on the demolition team, a prison guard (Lundgren) willing to do anything to pay for the treatment against her daughter’s cancer and a ruthless gang who claim to be the rightful owners. Demolition charges are set, everyone evacuates and the Castle will fall in 90 minutes. The clock is turning. Who will find the money and: will they make it out alive?
SÃ¡nchez said people can expect to see âso many great actors. Scott Adkins is an incredible fighter and an incredible action star.
“So if you like action, you like thrillers. You want a good classic action movie. Go out and watch this movie because it’s a lot of fun. It will keep you going until the end,” did he declare.
SÃ¡nchez completed his training in theater and production at Brevard College, before taking his talents south to Atlanta.
âI grew up always being efficient. I have always done theater and even when I was very little I was like the center of attention. I’ve always danced and quoted movies and all that, so I always knew how to act. That’s what I wanted to do, âSÃ¡nchez said.
As a Latino, SÃ¡nchez gives advice to aspiring Latinos who want to be in the industry as writers or performers.
âSo for Latino writers, performers, anyone in the creative space for Latinos, do your best to show your own sense of being a Latino and where you’re from. Not just your home country, whatever it is, El Salvador, Mexican, even if you’re Puerto Rican or whatever. I think being a Latin American we have some very interesting stories and some very, very colorful stories, âSÃ¡nchez said. âSo I encourage all creative Latino artists to really develop that and really come from a real place of your experience here in America, where your experience is, what generation you are.
âThis is all really beautiful and really cool, and I think we play with those stereotypes a lot, but our lives are way bigger than that. So it’s important to make sure that we show everything we can in it. all this life, you know? âSanchez said.
When not acting, Vas can produce live shows, indulge his passion for wine, and host wine tastings in Atlanta.
