Save the Date! Johnny will be on Italian TVs this weekend!

The first
episode from the 23rd Season of the Italian TV show “C’è Posta Per Te” (You’ve Got Mail) will be aired this Saturday (January 11) on Channel 5 in Italia.
The show was originally taped, 4 months ago, last September 5 at the Centro

Curiosity:
Although Johnny appears for ONLY 13 SECONDS on the preview, it was enough for his name appears on the Italian Trending Topics on Twitter on the last 2 hours!

New photo and BEAUTIFUL words from one of the actors who met Johnny on the set of “Waiting for the Barbarians”   😭

“One time with the luck of god given to me i played in the same movie and in the same scene with my idol and created a character. I idolized him ever since i was a child, watching every single movie of his, i was his biggest fan. Not just playing in a movie with him, just seeing him was my biggest dream. But one amazing day i got a chance to play in a movie with him, i will never forget this moment. Shaking hands with Johnny, hugging, making jokes and laughing, wishing each other the best of wishes, becoming friends with him, and even feeding dogs with him is unforgettable and amazing. Johnny would always tell me ‘good luck kid I believe in you’ right before my scene. Those were the best moments of my life. Soon we will meet again, when that happens ill take even better pictures, make even better memories with him, and i’ll think of even more funny things to make him laugh and become even greater friends with him. He is most famous person in the world but he’s just like a normal person, he is nice to everyone, there isn’t a hint of arrogance in him. To every Johnny fan out there, i love you. From his biggest fan. Johnny loves all the fans. On behalf of his biggest fan.”

Ciro Guerra: “All My Films Have Been Misread’:

‘Waiting for the Barbarians’ has a wonderful cast. Guerra was fortunate in that Mark Rylance was already on board by the time he joined the production. Guerra realized at once that he was truly the “…only actor that could play that role with all its complexity”, so he was particularly enthusiastic about working with him. The rest of the cast was chosen with mutual cooperation: –

“I was friends with Roberto Pattinson and we had met and we were looking for a project to do together so when this came along, I proposed it to him and he was very enthusiastic. Johnny (Depp) was a big fan of the novel and the writer and was perfect for the role. I think he came along because it was an opportunity for him to do something completely different from what people normally expect of him, so… [ however, the most difficult and] the most important person in that casting was Gana (Bayarsaikhan), the Barbarian girl.  We spent a lot of time looking for that character because we knew that she had to be someone very special. Someone who did not have the same level of recognition as the other actors because she was bringing something new. When we finally cast Gana, she brought her culture and her language with her, so that it became the language and culture of the barbarians. With everything that she brought, she added another level of depth to the film.

It was interesting for Guerra to observe the two leads and their interactions: –

“They [Johnny Depp and Mark Rylance] are the most opposite actors in the world, each one brilliant in his own way. They come from completely different traditions and they have completely different methods.  They were both super enthusiastic to be a part of this project and to work with each other and to see them feeding off each other was really electrifying for me. You watch them making a scene grow and making it work. They had their ideas, but when they saw the other doing his thing, it sparked many things in them. They became good friends … well, we all became good friends in the process, but they became very good friends. They had not met before and they … also… were so inspired by Coetzee’s writing…  that it really brought out the best in them. They were both a joy to work with… you hear [negative]stories about Johnny in the press, but I can say that we never had any of these experiences. He was the most dedicated actor, totally committed… a loving and sensitive person… he was really a pleasure to work with, as well as Mark …  It was just amazing to see  Mark’s craft, which is so unbelievable.  Yet, behind that unbelievable craft, there is a warm, sensitive and very open human being … it was one of the biggest pleasures I have ever had, to work with these two actors.”

London Film Festival 2019 -Waiting for the Barbarians:

Johnny Depp is intimidating as sunglass-wearing Colonel Joll, given a smidgen of humanity but willing to do anything to subdue the threat he perceives, and so interesting to see him go up against his perfect opposite in the Magistrate.
