The Mighty Dragon podcast with Marise Alvarez #obiwankenobi #nyche

I am super-excited to welcome actress Marise Alvarez onto The Mighty Dragon podcast.

Marise Alvarez

Just fresh from filming Obi-Wan Kenobi, Marise spilled the beans about her time on set playing Nyche Horn, the mother of a force-sensitive child, Corran Horn. What was it like working with Ewan McGregor on the latest series from the Star Wars Universe.

With such a diverse career, this multi-talented actress has worked with some impressive, inspiring filmmakers such as Benicio Del Toro, Steven Soderbergh, John Malkovich and Martin Sheen. Notably, Marise is in one of my favourite films, Soderbergh’s Che (parts 1 & 2) as Vilma Espin.

As The Mighty Dragon has a British base, I was interested to hear about Marise’s short film here in 2009 called Lover. It was heartening to hear Marise has roots in the UK, she studied here and has an impressive knowledge about fish ‘n’ chips!

Based out of LA, Marise also has a delightful comedy troupe in her native Puerto Rico, Teatro Breve. Marise discussed her favourite genres and what exciting projects she has coming up.

I have no doubts that this driven lady will make every success of her short film, after all, it seems passion projects of the heart motivate her.

Big thank you to Marise for this interview! See you in Manchester sometime for fish ‘n’ chips (oh, and mushy peas!).
