1. You had a role as Priest in “SPECTRE“. Tell about your role and the filming of this movie.
It’s the priest celebrating the funeral of the husband of Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci). It’s a small role, just one scene, but to be in a Bond movie it’s always a “big role” in your life.

2. How was Sam Mendes as a director and Italian Bond lady Monica Bellucci as an actress in the same funeral scene with you?
It was the first day of shooting in Italy and Rome, everybody was a little nervous, but everything went well, I knew Mrs Bellucci from another film (“Sangue pazzo” by M.T. Giordana) so I didn’t have any problem to talk and act with her.
4.Your favourite Bond actor?
Sean Connery, he is the first and the only, by the way, Daniel Craig is not bad.
5. Your favourite Bond film?
“Goldfinger” (1964), the first I have seen.
