World fame came to the Mario Casas six years ago, when the Spanish actor had just turned 24 years – that’s when the screens came melodrama “Three meters above the sky”. The role of the bully ACE instantly loved by girls around the world who with tears in his eyes took the break-up of the hero’s on-screen sweetheart. Soon, however, the cinematic novel, to the delight of fans, will be continued in the life – four years Spanish actor was Dating actress Maria Valverde.

In an exclusive interview with “StarHit” Mario Casas first told about how the camera was born his new relationship and about the breakup with Maria Valverde.
Mario, his girlfriend Bertha Vazquez You traditionally met on the set. It was love at first sight?
Burt doesn’t even remember how it all started. But I think it’s disingenuous. I didn’t feel when I saw her. But when we started to shoot a romantic scene, there’s sparks. It is difficult to say who first “shot an arrow”. Perhaps Cupid.—
Will now “engage” with the celibate life?
Is not ready yet.—
By the way, “palm trees in the snow” is the debut of Bertha in a big movie. How do You assess her acting talents?
Actually Bert became a real revelation to me. She brilliantly played the role. She deserves the Goya in the category “actor is a revelation.” And she sings better than me. It is so natural that even I would not dare give her advice.
What You caught in the scenario of this picture?
For me, this film was a wonderful reunion with Director Fernando Molina, with whom we have been friends for many years. We can say that we started together. Besides, any actor can only dream of such a gift, as the role of colonist Kilian. To play such pure, untainted romance, immerse yourself in an incredible journey to discover life, friendship, love… to Create a character. I find this to be a gift to any actor in his career hopes to get a role of this magnitude.—
Early in the film Your character is 18-year-old boy, 40-year-old man. How hard had You on set?
You are right! It’s been several months of grueling hard work on the process that turns a boy into a Mature man. The shooting lasted about five months. Had to move from place to place. Before the shooting, about two and a half months, there were constant rehearsals. Sometimes the Director asked us to improvise. The hardest part for me was the transition between the age of my staff. Start shooting at 9 am, he’s 18 years old, and for dinner playing a scene that already 36.
Can not help but ask, what kind of relationship You stayed with former lover Maria Valverde?
We respect each other. But I can’t say that we’re friends.—
Mary once admitted that “four years has met with a stranger”. Why did it happen?
As time goes by, people change and relationships.—
Discuss all the possible continuation of the film “Three meters above the sky”. Agree to play again love with Mary, if indeed such an offer is made?
Heard that the author is going to write a third book. I don’t know if she’s filmed. But I would love to played in the continuation. And, of course, would be happy to work again with Maria Valverde. Why not, she’s a wonderful actress.
Maria, Berta… These girls You met on set. And it happened that I had to come to you like a lady on the street or in a cafe, for example?
Usually girls come up to me. I’ve already forgotten what it’s like to beg for your phone and get a waiver.—
That is, in life You are as macho as the screen?
The image of the macho, sex symbol amuses me. But if not for this interview, I’d be at home watching some TV series with my family, younger brother who is a year old. I’m quite a home and trying to be worldly. I am one of those who like to Wake up, turn on some music, go to the bar three minutes from home, where I know my whole life, and chat with everyone. Such a life I love.—
On the screen, too, would like to change the image?
I am often asked: what would you like to play the role of a paralytic? My agent said that such a role could ruin everything, ruin your career. I would go for it, because it is in these roles lies the career of an actor. To continue to grow as a professional, you have to feel this uncertainty and fear. If I was forced to gain weight for a role 15 pounds! I always want to see the film and you completely transformed. I just finished acting in the film “Bull” with Luis Tocaram. There I a totally different, transformed, a real scumbag. And for “33” is a film about the miners with Antonio Banderas – I actually had to weight at 12 pounds.—
And to meet a normal girl, not related to the movie, or the fan, could it?
Of course!… But I’m afraid Bertha would be against.
Say You decided to study English in order to conquer Hollywood.
The English really are hard, even rehearsing the roles on it. But while the language of the students, this is my tail is still teaching and learning. The time will want to go to practice English acting school.—
Well, what’s the plan? How to conquer the famous Hills?
About Hollywood is so far from the realm of fantasy. Another thing to star in the film, which will hit the bull’s eye and the producer or the Director will pay attention to you. But this happens with the units. Has Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Antonio Banderas. Think about it, it seems to me a mistake, because such thoughts can cause your obsession. My goal is to grow with my characters, and reach 40 years old with a baggage of emotions, which will allow me to play any character. But we’ll see.
