Alexandre Astier: “I tell myself that Kaamelott was made for the cinema”
“I’m going to shoot, with a light heart, always with enthusiasm since it’s always pleasant to shoot with Alexandre (Astier). At lunch, I’m at the same table as Antoine (de Caunes). There’s a gentleman who seems extremely friendly. He speaks English to me! I’m not very good at conversation. I can’t. But from what I see and smell, this guy means something! I I don’t know who he is but I find him likeable”recount Francois Rollin at the microphone of Popopop, the program of Caunes and Charline Roux.
He goes on to explain that a few minutes later, at the coffee machine, “I make a sign to Antoine asking him: ‘Who is this guy?’. Antoine burst out laughing and told me: ‘Stop making fun of me! It’s Sting! I didn’t know who it was. But I still understood that it was someone very famous that I couldn’t recognize! It’s a very pleasant feeling! This guy whose songs I don’t know or anything at all… I was just sharing a canteen meal with him and I thought he was delicious!”
And the two have also shared, in the process, a scene of Kaamelott: First Part.
