Jaime Camil, when giving life to Vicente Fernández: “I face it without fear”


Los Angeles (USA), Feb 15 Actor Jaime Camil is not willing to let “fears” and “doubts” take over him during the filming of the series that Netflix is ​​preparing on the life of Vicente Fernández, so just two months after his death. “It is a project that you have to face with respect and preparation, but you cannot let the ghost of your mind remove those doubts and fears, because then you do it wrong. You have to do it with responsibility and honor,” the actor assured in an interview. with Eph. Camil, one of the most recognized Mexican actors in Hollywood, has just premiered his latest film, “KIMI” on the HBO Max platform, a project directed by Steven Soderbergh, director of such films as “Magic Mike”, “Traffic” and “Erin Brockovich”. But the interviews to promote this film have coincided with the filming of the series about Fernández in Mexico City and the actor has had to attend the press completely transformed to look like the musician. “We are about to finish, the filming is going incredible and it is the series authorized by him, the story he wants to tell, so everyone is very happy,” he explained about the project that Netflix is ​​preparing with Caracol Television and that will be titled “The Idol of the People” (“The idol of the people”, in Spanish). This ‘bioseries’ has the approval of the Fernández family, unlike the fiction prepared by Televisa and Univisión, based on the controversial book by Argentine writer Olga Wornat, “The Last King”. Although the expectation to see how the life of the Mexican legend is portrayed on the small screen is maximum, for Camil the biggest challenge is not the media pressure, but to live up to Fernández’s voice in the musical numbers. “I get a little dizzy after singing his songs because the vocal power that Vicente has is to be respected,” he acknowledged. “KIMI”, A ‘THRILLER’ ABOUT VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS Before the premiere of “The Idol of the People”, Camil will be on television around the world with “KIMI”, one of HBO Max’s big bets for this year, which He has joined the Mexican with Zoë Kravitz, Rita Wilson and Jacob Vargas. In “KIMI”, Soderbergh once again demonstrates his mastery of the ‘thriller’ with a barely 90-minute film starring an employee who routinely listens to the voice recordings of customers from a home assistant (similar to Alexa) until she discovers a violent crime. The worker, played by Kravitz, lives locked up at home because she suffers from agoraphobia, but the only way she has to report the crime is to go to the headquarters of her company and get involved in the bureaucracy of technology companies. “It is a gift from God to work with Steven Soderbergh, a very generous director and very clear about what he wants, about his ideas,” Camil explained. The actor plays one of the film’s thugs, a role that attracted him because of the way the villain is portrayed in the film. “Steven Soderbergh wanted a villain who could also appear to be the CEO of a company,” he explained. Although Camil’s character is not the only villain in a film that is inspired by the current moment and reveals the hidden face of large technology companies and a society dominated by technology. “The script is wonderful and when that catches my attention, I work on whatever it is,” Camil insisted.
