A FANTASTIC WOMAN

Interview with Daniela Vega
Who is Marina Vidal?

Marina Vidal is a 27-year-old waitress and singer. She is Orlando's partner, with whom she has an adult, loving, and committed relationship, in spite of their differences in age and social class. Marina, though far from being perfect, is a resilient woman who has quite an impressive level of compromise with her own life. She loves deeply, and this gives her the opportunity of loving herself and overcoming any adversity. She's a brave fighter who doesn't falter when the world puts her to the test. She has a vital force that is capable of carrying her through life, against all odds. Today, while all of us are somehow standing on the edge of a precipice, she doesn't even look at it, and searches for beauty instead. She understands that even Orlando's death, or what her being transgender means to everyone else, will not keep her from pushing forward. What did playing Marina mean to you?

It was, by far, one of the most difficult things I've ever done in my life. It was very complex on an emotional level because of the way in which I began to go deeper into the role, and the way in which I began converting all of my emotions in order to give the character a life of her own. On the other hand, it's been one of the most gratifying experiences. It's been a tremendous honor to be directed by Sebastian, who I admire greatly. I am also proud to be part of a team in which all us of, including production, art, camera, wardrobe, sound, photography, etc., feel very close and special for having participated in this project. A special mention goes out to my fellow cast members, especially to Francisco Reyes. I'd like to thank all of them for the experience and affection.

What do you hope to happen with the film? What would you like for people to take away? I would like for lots of people to watch it, and to see their reactions and discover the way in which we understand relationships and affection. As well as the way in which we conceive love.
