The actor commented that he was inspired by the biggest rock’n’roll idol in the world to play his character, the American Elvis Presley.
“I was very happy in choosing my character, it represents a lot of our forest. Come closer, the kids like it. When I saw the costume, it reminded me a lot of Elvis and I’m a big fan. He had a body thing, he was karateka, there was a lot of that thing the base of the legs. I decided to pay this tribute and took this thing lower. It was a challenge! It was done with great care.”
