“What would I like to play in Star Wars !, he says at the end of the video, after explaining that he would love to shoot a movie in space. I’m a space nerd. For me, the very idea of space, of what is around us, makes me feel good, it brings me peace and a perspective for the future. In this period when everything seems insignificant, I find a certain tranquility there. But let’s come back more specifically to Star Wars… “Even just a Stormtrooper, I’d love to say yes. I’d play a Wookie, that would be nice. I’d love to shoot a Star Wars, and a musical. I had to play in the new version of The Little Shop of Horrors, moreover, but the Covid arrived, there were problems with the agenda, and I believe that the director left to do something else. It broke my heart, it’s my favorite musical. Should I share my audition, just to see how it’s received by the public? To get the attention of Warner Bros, that people support me to say to them: ‘Come on, guys, make this movie!’“
Will Chris Evans keep his word? While waiting to see his audition appear on social networks, here is his video interview, in English:
