Sir Ben Kingsley Talks About “Hugo”
It was truly an honor meeting the legendary actor, Sir Ben Kingsley. He won an Oscar in 1982 for portraying the true-life role of “Gandhi,” and now, he’s back to playing a real-life character in “Hugo” as Georges Méliès, the father of narrative filmmaking. Will he bring home Oscar gold again?
In this interview, we talked about:
*** My shirt featuring Méliès’ “Trip to the Moon” iconic shot of the moon hit in the eye by a rocket ship
*** Why he wanted to work with Scorsese again who he collaborated before in “Shutter Island”
*** The magical world of Méliès
*** No one can make a movie about the history of cinema better than Scorsese can
*** His attraction to the tragic but ultimately redemptive character of Méliès
*** The physicality of his role
*** The lost glory days of Méliès
*** What does he want the audience to takeaway from watching “Hugo”
