Transformers 5 The Last Knight
Santiago Cabrera Describes Transformers: The Last Knight Role In New Interview
RAC - Monday, January 23, 2017


Actor Santiago Cabrera has given an interview to Sabado, or Saturday, the weekly magazine of Chilean newspaper El Mercurio. He talks about the process of getting his part in Transformers: The Last Knight as well as some specifics of the role and the possibility of returning in the next film. Keep reading, but be advised of light SPOILERS.
Cabrera goes to a casting for a movie that interests him. While reading the script, the casting director - who already knew him - puts on a strange face, which he translates as "this role is not for you, but I like what you're doing." Then she says:

- I'll pass another project that may interest you: Transformers 5.

"Did he interest you immediately?" Did not prejudices arise?

"I acknowledge that I had prejudices. When she told me, and she is a director who does good-good things, in my mind was: "Transformers number how much?". I had not seen one.

Transformers 5: The Last Knight, which opens June 23, is Cabrera's first blockbuster. The film, he says, will be a huge showcase for him: one-fourth grossed over $ 1 billion worldwide and now similar figures are expected, with a cast featuring Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro and John Goodman.

-Transformers is an opportunity for an actor, because there is a possibility that your name is there and then open other doors or fund projects. But I was also interested in the archetype of the character and the work we did with the American special forces to prepare me. It was a great experience and is the biggest I've done, because they have also put me in the group of protagonists - says about the film in which he will play a retired military man who is now a mercenary and who leads a squadron called TRF that fights the Threat of the Transformers. If all goes well, he says, his character could be in the sixth part of the franchise.

In order to work on the film, which finished filming on December 10, the actor had to interview Michael Bay, director of the series and known for films such as Armageddon or Pearl Harbor. Initially, the meeting would be in his office, but at the last moment decided to do it at home. There they talked for a while in the garden, until Bay said:

"Let's do a couple of scenes, shall we read some?"

Cabrera was not expecting it.

I stopped, read the texts, told me a few things and then said, "Already, we are, now I have to go talk to Anthony Hopkins on Skype," and he left. From her reaction, I thought she had not been much impressed, but the casting director looked at me and thumbs up.

You can't tell me that Transformers The Last Knight wouldn't have been more entertaining if the movie's conflict was resolved by a rap battle between ...well, anyone really. But for purposes of argument I'm gonna go with Nitro Zeus and Cogman. Unfortunately that didn't happen. But to promote the Leader Class Megatron and Calibur Optimus Prime, TakaraTomy did engage the services of two Japanese rappers to extol the virtues of the two toys in a rap battle. It's all in Japanese, naturally, but it's more than hilarious enough to be worth a look. You'll find the video embedded in the full post just below!
