Dominic Purcell is known best for his role of Lincoln Burrows in Fox’s long running TV series “Prison Break”. Recently Dominic has worked with acclaimed director Uwe Boll on great films like “Assault on Wall Street”. Media Mikes had a chance to chat with Dominic on his latest film “Vikingdom” and what he has planned for 2014.
Mike Gencarelli: What was the most challenging aspect for you working on “Vikingdom”?
Dominic Purcell: Most challenging aspect was the trust it required to engage in a heavy CGI movie made outside the safe confines of Hollywood an industry that excels in extravagance.
MG: How do you prepare for a character like Eirick?
DP: Preparation for me is all about economy. If its necessary I will but rarely do. I rely on the text and excute what is simply required.
MG: What do you enjoy most about working with Uwe Boll on various projecting including “Assault on Wall Street” and “In the Name of the King III”?
DP: Uwe is a courageous film maker that challenges conventional thinking. Directors and film makers of this kind have always been inspirational for me they allow when given the opportunity to challenge and provoke thought. Is this not what is important? I will continue to work with Uwe on future projects that provoke and challenge apathy and comfort.
MG: You had a very busy 2013 and 2014 looks to surpass, tell us about what you have in the cards?
DP: I’ve got couple of films being released. All worth a look. I’m especially interested in “A Fighting Man and watching how it is received. Spending a year training (boxing) and getting my head smashed it better get some love out there amongst critics. It’s a good film.
