To tell details of the production of the film directed by the Mexican Everardo Valerio Gout, Ana de la Reguera spoke with Trade and shared his feelings about this new franchise proposal, in which Latinos will be in charge of giving the share of the annual purge.
How do you feel about your participation in “La Purga por siempre”?
I am happy to be part of it, to star in it, for them to know this story that is very relevant to Latinos. It is an action horror film that tells of many of the situations that we live here (United States) as Latinos. So, I think it is a very round film, very good. I hope you like it.
In the classic films of “The Purge”, it is the Americans who save everyone, in this film it has been the Latinos. What do you think of this renewed story?
That enchanted me! It was very smart and humble of the creators of “La Purga” to make such a refreshing story. I feel like the fact that they hired a Mexican director and we as Mexican actors was also very good. We bring things to the table, we contribute a lot of our vision and we make it more realistic.
How challenging has it been to work on “The Forever Purge” in a context as difficult as the pandemic?
We did it before the pandemic, we just finished in December (2019) and the pandemic was already there, but we had not found out, it started between February and March. We had a pending scene that we could not film. At the end of last year we did some reshoots and we went back to set for about 3 or 4 days.
After seeing the result of the film, what did you feel and how would you describe it?
I want to see her again. I’ve only seen it once, really fast, and I haven’t seen it on the big screen yet. Always the first time you are in shock. I am very happy with the result, I hope people like it. It seems to me a good script, a very round film that fulfills everything that people expect from the franchise.
Before “The Forever Purge” you worked for Netflix in Zack Snyder’s “The Army of the Dead”. How has this new stage in your career been? Especially after you said you would be more into production than acting.
(Laughs) I know, I mean, it’s like life is always the opposite. In a way I decided, I live in Los Angeles my whole life, but I decided to focus on the things I want to do, on the things that would fulfill me as an actress. So I did, I did my series (“Ana”) and many job opportunities began to come to me. I was more relaxed, no longer wanting to prove anything to anyone and focused on my things, that has changed me a lot as a creator, actress and artist. I think that’s why things have turned out better for me.
Regarding the Latino presence in Hollywood, there is a considerable increase in actors in the industry. What do you think about it?
I love the idea that we are a lot, that we are a community, that there is not that: ‘there are only these 2 or 3 actors who did it’. There is a Latino community, that continues to grow, that there continue to be opportunities for all. That means that we are being more visible and that people want to see us more on screen, I think it is very important that the doors are opening for everyone.
