Updated: Jul 20, 2018
In an exclusive interview, actor Antonio Bustorff talks to NY Elite about his latest exciting projects, IBJJF European Championship and more!
NY Elite: What are you latest and current movie projects?
Antonio Bustorff: My latest movie project was the third installment of Gerard Butler’s “Olympus Has Fallen”, “London Has Fallen” trilogy, the much anticipated “Angel Has Fallen” directed by Ric Roman Waugh.
NY Elite: Can you tell us about your character in the film?
Antonio Bustorff: Can’t tell you much, but I can tell you I am a South European highly trained mercenary sent out to carry a specific task in this film.
NY Elite: What was it like working with the director?
Antonio Bustorff: Working with Ric was an amazing experience, he is a director focused on the “real”, every scene transmits a “real” feel to it, regardless of how spectacular a particular scene might look you will never question “could that really happen?”, watch his previous movie “Shot Caller” starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and you will see what I am mean, So powerful.
NY Elite: In which movies have you played lead role?
Antonio Bustorff: No lead role yet! When the right one comes along I will. When people label you the “Portuguese Statham” it sets you in a certain direction, but I like to believe that I am like a clean canvas where anything can be drawn or sketched, and I will become whatever the character needs to be.
NY Elite: Among all your roles so far, which has been your favourite one and why?
Antonio Bustorff: I would say the one I just finished in “Angel Has Fallen”. My acting skills were joined with my Martial Arts skills, and that was amazing since the month before the audition I just had become British Champion again and the month before that I took Silver in the IBJJF European Championship so when the casting director Dan Hubbard was asking for an actor with a real fighting/combat experience, my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu hit the spot, I mean, a lot of people watch UFC, so more and more people are aware of the efficiency and practicality of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. A big thank you to Dan Hubbard and Claire Robinson for the opportunity, it came at the perfect time!
