An aircraft flies past a lunar eclipse over the sky in the Pathum Thani province, on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand, April 4. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, the earth and moon line up in a constallation in which the moon on its way around the eartch moves through the planet’s shadow. This was the shortest lunar eclipse of the century.






The total eclipse of the moon lasted only a short time, but it still dazzled.

Early risers in the western U.S. and Canada should have been able to catch a glimpse before dawn Saturday. The moment when the moon was completely obscured by Earth’s shadow lasted several minutes, making it the shortest lunar eclipse of the century.

A total lunar eclipse is sometimes called a blood moon because of the red color that is cast upon it by light refracting in Earth’s atmosphere.

Some skygazers complained that clouds prevented them from seeing any of the 3½-hour lunar show. People in eastern Australia, New Zealand and Japan viewed the eclipse at night.

The total eclipse was unusually brief because the moon passed through the upper part of Earth’s shadow. Longer eclipses occur when the moon passes through the middle of the shadow.

The next total lunar eclipse will occur in September.

You want to do a good job, but you don’t want to be influenced by anyone. It’s so personal to so many people. I have a lot of respect for the part. I have to go into a place where I can feel a very personal connection to the role. I have to start with a blank canvas, almost like starting from scratch as if I never heard of him before, as if I was meeting him for the first time. I really needed to see how I felt about him, to see how those words that he says touched me. I needed to feel vulnerable, human and be affected by the material. No one knows how he felt, how he was, what he did and what he said.

Also, the type of religious content being done today is different from what we’ve seen in the past. A.D does this beautifully. They are very gutsy and passionate. It doesn’t shy away from the violence of the time and at the same time it has the epic factor and the heart.

I spent ten years in London, I trained there. But because I started in English, it kind of feels the most natural to me, to act in English, which is a strange thing. My language is Spanish, I grew up in Argentina, I speak to my family in Spanish, but if you were to ask me what language I connect with, it’d be English in some weird way. Also, when I worked in Spain, I worked for four years in Spain in television and theater, they wanted me to be a Spaniard (laughs) so I wasn’t able to use my accent which is Argentinian. Any accent that is different than your own you have to work for it, so speaking in Spanish for me professionally was speaking in Spanish with a Spaniard accent.
