Gael García Bernal Praises ‘Station Eleven’ Experience, Open To Reteaming With Series Creatives

Gael García Bernal came by The Hollywood Reporter‘s Studio at Sundance, hosted by Heineken Silver and Origin Spring Water, to discuss his new film Cassandro. Directed by Roger Ross Williams, the film tells the true story of gay “exótico” wrestler Saúl Armendáriz, who created the famous wrestling character of the same name and rose to international fame.

While I’m promoting at the Sundance Studio cassandro, Bernal was asked about his role as Arthur in the criminally underrated HBO literary adaptation station eleven, based on Emily St. John Mandel’s graphic novel, and whether we might see him in a rumored second St. John Mandel television project developed from her 2020 novel The Glass Hotel.

“That would be incredible, wouldn’t it?” he answered. “That would be lovely.”

Asked for his opinion on Station Eleven as a finished work, he says, “I love that series, I love how it came out. I think it’s such an important series and I loved every minute of it. I guess I hadn’t [ever] i saw something on television that i was so emotional about, and i think it’s because it’s about the end of things.

“It’s about what happens after everything changes, from the point of view of theater and actors making things,” he continued. “A big part of our communities is that we can represent other people. People we are not. So it’s an incredibly strong metaphor and statement for what we should do. We need more empathy. And children need to experience being an actor. Being an actor is such a fun way to grow up and be able to play in complete freedom.”

In August, deadline reported that St. John Mandel and Station Eleven series creator Patrick Somerville would reunite to adapt The Glass Hotel for HBO Max, as well as the author’s upcoming novel Sea of ​​Tranquility.
