Let’s talk about a Mexican actress named Eiza Gonzalez Reyana, she also a singer. People started to know her from her first debut role as Lola Valente in the Mexican musical telenovela that shows is Lola, Once Upon a Time. After that, she started working in the lead role of Clara Molina on Nickelodeon teen drama. Her age is 31 and born in Mexico City, Mexico on 30th January 1990.
Recently there is an interview taken with Eiza Gonzalez, she discusses her journey in Hollywood and promoted Godzilla vs Kong, and Alita: Battle Angel.
Eiza Gonzalez got many opportunities in her life, so she got experience working in massive CG-heavy movies like Bloodshot, Alita: Battle Angel and Godzilla vs Kong. In an interview, Eiza Gonzalez got a question that “If she’s noticed any shared trait between the directors who are best able to handle such enormous projects?”
Eiza Gonzalez said that “I think that what really becomes challenging for filmmakers in these movies is balancing out the requirements and the requests from a studio, and the idea, and then the creative, and then bringing [it] to life. It’s a lot. It’s a lot. It’s a lot of pressure being put in a director and it just becomes, who can take the pressure better than others? And do you cave or you don’t cave? I’ve always said, this industry more than anything, it’s a game of resistance. Who can take more and really, how do you do it as elegantly as possible?”
“He’s inherently a nerd, so he geeked out about every single thing in the cutest, endearing, beautiful way as a director, but also inspired confidence. I think what I could see in a way is he was equal parts excited but terrified, and that’s okay. I think that that’s okay to normalize being terrified with that amount of expectation because it sort of made us all feel okay that we were all terrified.
“I think that the way that J approached the casting of that movie, to me, was already a success, whether the movie works or not. The way he approaches life is very fluid. His energy’s very fluid. He’s a very confident man. He could have cast anyone and believed in me, and [was] just my biggest champion. He believed and he pushed and he would really want to diversify the cast as much as possible for no more reason than just making it feel more special and unique, because he’s quirky like that. I loved that and it boosted my confidence in a sense of, ‘I can tell different stories. I can do this. I’m not gonna let the industry dictate that I can only do this or that.’ So now I have a lot of fun because, besides the things I’m looking at to produce and create as a producer or eventually would love to direct, I also have fun in my auditions. I feel more confident than ever in changing up my look, cutting my hair, using a wig, changing an accent, trying! You know, I auditioned for the new Game of Thrones. I was like, ‘I’m not British but I’m gonna try! Let’s try, let’s play! What is the worst I can get? A no. Okay!’”
