The lovely Pasquale Esposito interviewed by Film-News.co.uk editor - Marco Gandolfi - in central London on 28th February 2018.
Pasquale Esposito stars as Eduardo Arenella in Sky Atlantic’s acclaimed drama, Gomorrah.
Award winning Italian actor, Pasquale Esposito, makes his international breakthrough as charming mafia boss, Eduardo Arenella, in the third season of thrilling organised crime drama, Gomorrah, based on the book by Roberto Saviano.
Set in the suburbs of Naples, Gomorrah focuses on organized crime and the relationships of gangsters, drug dealers, and ordinary people. Gomorrah depicts street-level crime and its hierarchical organization from the pavement up to the office chair.
In the role of Gomorrah’s Eduardo Arenella, Pasquale’s Italian charm is perfectly suited to the elegant mafia boss, whose old fashioned sense of etiquette comes into direct conflict with the methods of the younger generation. As a turf war begins, it’s unknown who is destined to come out on top.
As well as being awarded the Premio internazionale del Gallo D’oro for his work on Gomorrah, Pasquale is no stranger to the big and small screen, with credits including La Squadra, the multiple award winning Hidden Children, Vento di Ponente, and When in Rome, starring Kristen Bell. His upcoming work includes Fabio Zito’s Private Notes.
Pasquale’s acting has been profoundly influenced and guided by his Zen Buddhism practice, and he had been invited to speak on ‘Zen in the Arts’ at numerous universities. His passion for research into expression and communication within the performing arts continues to greatly influence him in his work.
Gomorrah airs in the UK on Sky Atlantic every Wednesday at 9pm. US airdates on Sundance TV are yet to be announced.
