Our thanks to paddy for surfacing this fascinating short Spanish video on Bob Anderson and Viggo originally posted by Exxeke at capitan-alatriste.com.

Go to Telecinco and click on Vídeo: Mira como se rodaron las escenas de acción.

It looks like the promotion of the film is beginning in Telecinco, little by little. Here is a small clip broadcasted yesterday, of some behind scenes while Díaz Yanes talks about Bob Anderson, that it was Viggo's idea to bring him, the movies he worked in, the "real 17th century" type of fights he choreographed... link thanks to Exxeke at capitan-alatriste.com.

Our thanks go out to gm5 for translating the article that went along with the interview in Accion Magazine. It gives us a feeling for the excitement that surrounds this entire project in Spain.
Quote:
This article talks about the experiences of the extras during the filming of Alatriste.

Among other things it says that one of the things that everybody wants is to appear in the movie in such a way that they can be recognized, and then it goes on to say that...

The other thing that they all wanted was to meet the actors, especially Viggo Mortensen. Although some people were not happy with this choice at the beginning, now everybody is very pleased. Inés, just frustrated that she couldn't see him in Talamanca, even wrote a poem

At the door of the set,
Sitting on a curb
We shout: My G..., outrage
Why hasn't Viggo appeared?

We long for your moustache,
Your sword and proud pose,
Patiently we wait for you,
Good grief! Come out now, Viggo!
(my best try; translating poems is really difficult)

She finally got it, briefly, in her only day at the set.

Juanra, who was close to him all afternoon, says: 'I don't know what it is, but you can see it from a distance. I couldn't help thinking: "Man (tío), you are the darned Captain Alatriste'. And he definitely has the glaucous look described in the books. He gave me a tray with candies to pass out to everybody. A very surreal moment. People would not believe that he had given them to me.' And what about his accent? 'When he spoke to me, he had a nasal accent, between Argentinean and 'gringo', but afterwards, when he plays Alatriste, he hides it and uses a deeper voice'.

Carlos went even further. After being picked, he became a member of the capitán-alatriste.com forum, an unofficial web page that even Arturo Pérez-Reverte has spoken very well of (Juanra has an autograph to prove it), which was created by Ramón "Efstone', also from Murcia. The more than 650 members 'devour' every bit of information. After telling his story, he was asked to give Mortensen a letter from the fans, written by the moderator, David Nievas "Targul'. 'I went to wait for him outside the dressing room, and some people are just unbelievable. He was getting dressed, half naked, and some curious people would open the door without even caring. I waited patiently and gave the letter to him. I hope he read it. He looked curious, I think especially because I didn't ask for a picture or an autograph'.

Viggo is obviously one of the favorites among the girls in the forum. They have promised to prepare a very special dessert for him: "forum girls with whipped cream' (a joke related to a popular dessert: strawberries with whipped cream) for the opening of the movie. One of them, Votabríos, also managed to give him a T-shirt with the nicknames of the forum members during the filming at El Escorial. And to prove that not all of them are in their 20's, with plenty of time or ability to sneak out of their jobs, Votabríos was new in these matters at 44.

The article goes on with more anecdotes, but no mention of VM.
