Entrevista a Rockmond Dunbar

Si ayer le tocaba a Dominic Purcell contestar a las preguntas de los medios, hoy es el turno del actor de Prison Break con el nombre más peculiar: Rockmond Dunbar. El actor que interpreta a C-Note nos habla del pasado, presente y futuro de su personaje. Esta es la entrevista:

IGN TV: How are things going for you with the show?

Rockmond Dunbar: The show is amazing. The ratings have been decent. We're breaking out all over the country; all over the world really. The show is doing fantastic, and everybody is happy so far.

IGN TV: You've really switched things up this year. Is that fun for you? Wentworth [Miller] told me it was nice to get out of filming at the prison after awhile.

You do [like getting away from the prison], but at the same time, now we miss it. You kind of miss the camaraderie when you're on location all the time. You're running, you're sweaty, you're digging holes. So it's one of those things where this show has taken a lot of different twists and it keeps you interested. And it keeps us interested as actors, so it's a good thing.

IGN TV: I imagine it must feel almost like you're working on a different show now, since you're all split up and working with different actors. Is that a strange dynamic?

Yeah, it is a strange dynamic. You just don't know what's gonna happen. You don't know who's gonna die, who's gonna get captured… Regardless of your contract! You're like sitting on the edge, going, "Oh… what's gonna happen next?" So it's one of those things where you wake up in the morning and you're excited, you know?

IGN TV: This season has been pretty ruthless with who dies and who doesn't.

Exactly, exactly!

IGN TV: When you get the script, do you think, "Alright... Am I okay?"

Yeah, "Just keep flipping [the pages], just keep flipping!" You just don't want to hear the word "Blam!" Done.

IGN TV: It also seems like they've put you guys in some extreme weather conditions both years.

Yeah. Chicago [where Season 1 was shot], the winter has been really brutal. The summer in Dallas [where Season 2 is shot] was really brutal, but now we're getting over to the cold side. But I don't think it's gonna get as cold as Chicago, so we should be pretty good.

IGN TV: The show seems like it's aiming towards a specific ending. How long do you think it should run for?

You know, it's just one of those things. I don't think… I think a lot of people miss this point, but it's really not about how long the show can last or how long it can really go. People think that's a valid question. It's not. You can create as much as infinity. The show can go on for as long as people watch it, and as long as it makes money. And that's what the bottom line is. It's really not about how popular the show is or can it withstand some of the storylines. [It's] how much money is the show going to make? And I think it's going to be a moneymaker for quite some time. Now who's going to be on the show? Who's going to sustain or what characters will be interesting? Who's going to be new on the show? I have no idea. But it's a good show right now and I'm just riding it.

IGN TV: Your character has this interesting family dynamic, where you're now on the run with your daughter. How is that for you to play?

It's great. It's nice to spend great, quality time with your kid! [Laughs] Helena [Klevorn], who plays my daughter, she's an incredible actress. Really young and smart. We fight all the time, but we're like an old married couple; it's one of those things, off set, behind the cameras. But we'll see what happens. I don't know if I'm gonna get in contact with my wife again. The writers have not told me the storyline of what's gonna happen. I have no idea. So we'll see. I'm really interested to see what's gonna happen myself.

IGN TV: Do you ever push to find out what's coming up?

Yeah, we do. But you know what's so funny? They'll tell you storylines, like, "Yeah, this is gonna happen, and then your character is going to go do this." And then you get the script, and you're like, "That's not what you said was gonna happen. This is totally different." So you just kind of wait until you get the script. You get tired of asking!

IGN TV: How much are you seeing your costars right now, since you don't actually appear on screen with them very much?

You know, it's kind of weird! Last year, when we were in Chicago, we were all together. Now, since we're separate, our schedules are totally different. I'll work maybe one or two days a week, and then I'm off doing my other projects. So it's one of those things where we don't see each other that much, unless we're all in town together. But most of the time, we're all in town at different times. Like I'm here in Vegas right now, and there are some guys still in Dallas, and some guys still in Los Angeles. And it just depends on when they're working.

IGN TV: It's a pretty physical show, especially with you guys on the run now. Is that exciting or after awhile are you thinking, "Alright, I've done enough running!"?

It's exciting when you read it, and then when you start running, you realize how out of shape you are and you're like, "You know, this is not fun! This hurts!" So it's really trying to get your body into shape, so you can withstand and also act without huffing and puffing all the time.

IGN TV: Would you like a happy ending for your character, or a blaze of glory ending?

You know what? I just wouldn't like an ending for my character! [Laughs]

IGN TV: [Laughs] Well, ten years from now.

Ten years from now? I don't know. We'll see. If I'm working one day a week, who cares? But at the end of the day, as long as it's as compelling as what they've created the storyline to be so far, then I'm happy.

Prison Break returns with new episodes on January 29th.
