Your new movie Valley of the Sasquatch - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


It's definitely a Bigfoot movie, but it's also more than that. At the center of the film is the story of a father-and-son relationship. I play Sergio who is Roger's (Jason Vail [Jason Vail interview - click here]) best friend and he's a real piece of work. He just can't help himself, no matter how hard he tries.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and even though this might sound like a mean question, how much of David Saucedo can we find in Sergio?


I spent over 10 years in the funeral business and I always draw upon that for my characters. You sit across from a lot of interesting types of people in that job. How much of me is in Sergio? I'll answer that by something Cory, who was a production assistant on the shoot, told me, "You're such a nice guy, but the minute they say action you turn into such an asshole!"


How did you get involved with the project in the first place, and to what extent could you relate to Valley of the Sasquatch's horror theme?


I had worked on a feature called Circle, which Brent Stiefel was a producer on, and he was also a producer on Valley of the Sasquatch. Brent reached out to me after we finished filming Circle because he thought I'd be a good fit to play Sergio. He sent me the script which I loved, and after some Skype sessions with director John Portanova [John Portanova interview - click here], I was on board. As to relating to the horror genre, I've always enjoyed this genre and I've watch many of the other Sasquatch movies out there. When I read the script for Valley of the Sasquatch, I knew that I wanted to be a part of the film.


What can you tell us about your director John Portanova [John Portanova interview - click here], and what was your collaboration with him like?


I liked him immediately on the initial Skype sessions we did to finally meeting him on set. He was very open to suggestions and willing to hear my input on my character Sergio. He also had a clear vision for what he wanted for the film, which helps me as an actor.


Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!


Shooting the movie was a great experience. More like summer camp than a film set. The cast, crew and the production folks were all at a ski lodge for the duration of the shoot. We bunked in dormitory-style sleeping quarters and had our meals family-style. On our days off we would all go into nearby towns of Cle Elum or Roslyn, WA to do our laundry, use the internet, go to The Brick for lunch. We enjoyed both towns. On set we had one of the most professional/hardworking crews I'd ever worked with and it was a pleasure coming to set every day. They really took care of us both on and off set. I am particularly thankful for the day they brought in the masseuse!


Any future projects you'd like to share?


I've got a couple of films in the horror genre coming out this year. Savageland was screened at Comic-Con and is screening at other festivals around the country. Circle is looking like a release very soon. I also did a co-star role recently on an HBO’s signature series but I can't say more than that about it now since I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement.


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I fell into it by accident. I did some head-shots for an actor and he inspired me to take a shot at it. I did take acting lessons initially but most of what I've learned I've learned by working on set. Everybody has their own path and that seems to have worked for me.


What can you tell us about your film- and TV-work prior to Valley of the Sasquatch?


One of my early roles was with Mexican television royalty Angelica Vale in the lead role of No Me Hallo. The show was originally intended as a web series but after its success online, Univision decided to also air the series on its network. I appeared in two episodes playing the role of Peppino. I then worked on a lot of independent projects. Later, after a long audition process I was cast in the role of Cesar Arista (in the Christopher Landon directed) Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. This was the second time I had worked with director, writer and producer Oren Peli. Previously, I shot the (as of yet unreleased) Oren Peli directed project Area 51. Since then, I've played opposite Salma Hayek in How to Make Love to an Englishman and I was the gritty drug enforcer Rosco in 6 Ways to Sundown staring Bai Ling, Tom Sizemore and Dominique Swain. With over three million hits on YouTube, I am also in the music video by The Cataracs, "All You" - I play a coyote that smuggles the band into Mexico.


Besides movies and TV, you've also done your fair share of theatre, right? So what can you tell us about David Saucedo, the theatre actor, and how does performing on stage compare to acting in front of a camera? And which do you prefer, actually?


I've done theatre since I began acting, and to be honest with you it scares the shit out of me but I love it. The stage experience is like night and day compared to working on film, television or commercials. I like them both and they each give me a different kind of rush.


How would you describe yourself as an actor, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?


I do a little bit of everything, drama, comedy, action films and I'm bi-lingual English/Spanish. so I’ve done some work for Spanish network television. As far as character development, it can be anything from extensive research to something as simple as an object that I'll have in my possession (for the role of Sergio, I carried a wood rosary with me) as I play the role. One of my favorite techniques is having a playlist of songs that the character would listen to. It really gets me into the mind-set and mood of the character.


Actors (and indeed actresses) who inspire you?


Vera Farmiga, great actor and director. Tom Hardy who I just saw in a film called The Drop. He delivered a really great performance. And Morgan Freeman.


Your favourite movies?


I watch a lot of documentaries, but as far as features go I like Blade Runner and a film written and directed by Eric England called Contracted to name a few. I get a lot of flak for saying this, but I do love the Twilight series.


... and of course, films you really deplore?

Anything else you are dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?


First thanks for asking me to do this and second, I just finished writing my first screenplay. It's a horror film that centers on a Latino family. 

The other thing is one is my favorite quotes, "If you're not living on the edge you're taking up to much space." - Stephen Hunt.


Thanks for the interview!
