Cliché: Tell us about your character in a couple sentences.
Giovanni Bejerano: Well my character basically suffers from premature ejaculation. He blames his father for his problem.
Have you ever played this role in your own personal dating life?
Thankfully I have not!
What do you like/dislike about your character?
I like that he is loving and caring and open about his problem and only means the best. He can only wish he wasn’t like this.
Tell us your most memorable experience while shooting this series.
Well, the entire scene to me was memorable, but I really enjoyed the ending when I enter the bathroom and can’t find anything to clean myself up with.
How did you come to be a part of this project?
I was invited by Lauren Patrice Nadler. She had thought about me for this role and I said OF COURSE!
What was it like working with your long time teacher wearing the director hat?
Working with Lauren was great as always. She has an amazing ability to make the best and the most out of the most difficult situations. She also knows and understands the actors process and knows how to speak to her actors.
How collaborative or how much freedom did you have to “play” or improvise on the set?
I had a lot of freedom to play around and add lib. They actually kept the long kiss that I give her before entering the bathroom which was not scripted originally.
What was the funnest part of shooting this episode?
I think the funnest part was getting to do all the different takes of me bursting in my pants.
How has your character grown or evolved from the previous episode, if they did?
Let’s hope he does evolve from this problem.
