Kevin Zegers was recently interviewed by NOWTORONTO.com promoting his new movie The Colony. In the interview Kevin talks about the extreme conditions that he had to bare durring filming.
“It was minus-40 or -50,” Zegers recalls during an interview at the (well-heated) Trump Hotel. “So cold the camera lenses were freezing.”
Kevin mentioned that he didn’t take his role in The Colony purely because he was Canadian but mentioned his pride for the industry in Canada.
“I sort of feel like it’s a disservice,” he says. “I feel like Canadian movies should be as good or better than the competition because of the talent we have here. Someone like Ryan Gosling shouldn’t have to come back here because it’s a Canadian movie. He should want to come back because some of the best movies are being made here.”
The article also touched on The Mortal Instruments, and how he sees his role as an oppurtunity for him to help small budget films get made in the future.
“If [Twilight’s] Robert Pattinson wants to get a small script made, he can just because of his foreign value,” says Zegers, describing how even indie projects need recognizable names to get financing. Zegers is counting on Mortal Instruments to raise his stock and afford him the freedom to pursue passion projects.
“Let’s say they want to continue those movies. It’s going to become a lot easier for me to find the money to make a script I love that may have a harder time getting made.”
The article had audio clips from the interview which you can check out HERE! In those audio clips Kevin said that he really enjoyed the training and stunt process.
“Thats the stuff I look forward to when I was a kid… That was probably the most fun I’ve ever had on a movie set”
NOWTORONTO.com had some very interesting commentary on the actor who is about to portray our beloved “Alec” in the upcoming Movie saying:
‘Looking comfy in a black T-shirt and jeans, the former model has a face that could make a straight man gush’
