Alexander Siddig talks about Matt

  • Syriana actor Alexander Siddig talked about working with Matt in an Italian interview at Primissima. Additional comments, including his views on working with George Clooney, have not been translated below.

    How has it been working with Matt Damon?

    Very good. Matt Damon plays a character who would have been friends with the Prince if his life had been different. He is an extraordinary and very sweet actor who has taken great care of me although I was not a star. He treated me with enormous respect and care. He is a wonderful person and especially intelligent, and he protected me during the making of the film. His acting is fantastic and therefore our scenes were all very spontaneous and natural. We spent a lot of time together discussing our private lives.
