Maria Mesa, Jackson’s The Dead Men co-star, has posted some new behind the scenes images from the film via her official facebook page. I’ve added the ones featuring Jackson to the gallery.
She also recently talked to Celebrity Teen Scoop about what it was like working with Diego and Jackson.
CTS: What was it like working with Jackson and Diego?
Maria: Jackson and Diego were a big inspiration for me. I never thought I’d be working with actors of their caliber in such a short time so I was a little anxious. But getting to know them and being around them every day while doing the movie made me more confident. They are so talented and such nice people. I learned a million things about them, as actors and as people.
Every time there was tension on set or something went wrong, Jackson would surprise us all with a joke or with a weird movement. Even when shooting, he would finish the scene or his line with something random and, believe it or not, it would work in the scene. It always made us all laugh. Sometimes, before or after filming, the crew would get together and start singing songs. Jackson, who is also a talented musician, would play his guitar and the rest of us would sing along. There was always a time or a moment to play, enjoy and have a great time on set.
CTS: What did the three of you do for fun during down time or on days off in Colombia?
Maria: In our free time we would go out to restaurants, spend time with the crew away from set, or just go around the city. Medellin is a beautiful area with enjoyable places.
