Hispanic Magazine.com - January/February 2004 - Diego Luna (1518 words)
Luna, who says he had never professionally danced before, spent nearly three months practicing and preparing for the role of Javier, and he is joined by director John Ferland and a cast that includes Sela Ward, most recently on television’s Once and Again, and John Slattery, last seen in Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic.
Luna agrees with that assessment and laments the sad state of the Mexican film industry, which is suffering after government budget cuts slashed much of its financial support recently.
Luna hopes to work in the future with directors Paul Thomas Anderson and the Coen Brothers as well as a new crop of Mexican directors that he says are up-and-coming.
The Seattle Times: Arts & Entertainment: Diego Luna's star rises with 'Dancing' film (1142 words)
Luna says he was only slightly encouraged by the fact that Garai had never danced, either, and by the fact that the producers had budgeted for a two-month rehearsal period in Puerto Rico, where the film was to be made.
Luna's father was one of Mexico's most revered theatrical and lighting designers, and his mother, an English-born costume designer, died when Diego was 2.
But most exciting for Luna was being chosen by Steven Spielberg to play a pivotal role in the upcoming "The Terminal," starring Tom Hanks as a traveler whose war-torn Eastern European country collapses while he is abroad, leaving him a man without a country.
