Stage to Screen: Rubén De Eguia

In America, actors who excel on stage with a particular role, rarely get the chance to play that character on film. Sometimes, it is a question of timing, a movie is made years after a stage show closes. Most often, like the case of Meryl Streep taking over from Bernadette Peters in Into The Woods, money is at the heart of casting decisions.

Thankfully however, exceptions sometimes occur. Spanish actor Rubén De Eguia first played Jordi in a 2012 of El principi d'Arquimedes at the Grec 2012 Festival de Barcelona. A few years later director Ventura Pons cast Rubén in the 2015 film version, El virus de la por. I have not seen the film, released last month, but hopefully it will make it's way on-line or on DVD very soon.
