One of the things I loved most about working with Alejandro Amenabar on “The Others” was the chance to work with someone who was completely committed to the experience. Not only did Alejandro direct the film, he wrote the brilliant screenplay, and composed the film’s haunting score.
“The Others” was so personal for him, and yet he gave me the freedom to delve into my character and work from my heart. I once heard Alejandro say that the best thing he can do for an actor is to support them and give them the freedom to create a character and make it theirs. That’s what made working with him such an incredible and rewarding experience.
