Again during the Rome Film Fest, we also met Matthias Schoenaerts, who plays Django in the Sky TV series, and the German actress Lisa Vicari, who plays Sarah. Here is our video interview.
Also during the Rome Film Fest, where the western series of Sky, Djangowas previewed in the presence of foreign protagonists and Francesca Comenciniwe met the protagonist for a chat on video, Mathias Schoenaertswhich inherits the iconic character brought to success by Franco Nero in the western of Sergio Corbucci from 1966. The two actors met and shared a scene in the series and it can be said that Schoenaerts received the blessing of the original Django, to whom he showed great deference, as Nero himself recounted laughing. Bravissimo in all his interpretations and perfect for the role of a broken man like this anti-hero, Mathias Schoenaerts, we don’t know if out of tiredness or otherwise, he proved to be of few and confused words in the interviews he granted, but it’s always a pleasure to see him. Here alongside a debutant in an Italian product: despite the name, Lisa Vicari is a young German actress, who in Django (at the time it was not possible to say but by now everyone knows it) she is the only daughter of the protagonist, who remained after the massacre of her family. It is by looking for her that Django will arrive in New Babylon.

In the cinema comes the age of 15 in the film Father Daens. The more observant will have noticed it already in 2006 in Black Book by Paul Verhoeven, which was followed by a series of European films, such as Bullhead, A taste of rust and bone, Blood Ties, The rules of chaos and a beautiful performance in French suiteof 2014. In Italy he worked with Luca Guadagnino, who directed him in A Bigger Splash. We recently saw him in the ensemble cast of Amsterdam by David O. Russell. Lisa Vicari was born in Munich in 1997, she has clear Italian origins, and she too made her film debut very early, at just 12 years old. You have worked predominantly in Germany, in television and film roles such as those held in Luna’s Revenge e Fill & Ossi.
