Can’t you hear a certain background melody that’s getting closer and closer and increasingly intense? “Come on, come on, come on”, of course, you can hear it, the lyrics say, “I’ll use the eyes of the heart to catch your secrets…”. No, this is not hysteria or any kind of hallucination, it’s all true: the much-awaited fourth season of “Boris” is finally out on October 26th on Disney Plus!
So, open everything up, as fine Duccio would say, but most importantly open your Disney Plus profiles to discover how the crew headed by Renè Ferretti will (?) succeed in this huge, (literally) biblical undertaking: telling the “Life of Jesus” with means, rules, and challenges that mirror those of a production shot in the Twenties of this century.
Among the many comebacks, there’s Carolina Crescentini, who’s come a long way since the last time she’s worn Corinna’s shoes: the experience is so much more, but the will to do and put herself in the game playing this role is the very same, with the awareness of belonging to a cast and a production that, in the Italian TV landscape, have become iconic.
If what we can expect from Corinna is her usual drama queen approach, what we should expect from Carolina, instead, is the recount of extraordinary acting experiences (but for real, non as one of Renè’s recounts). With laughs, discipline, teamwork, and newly discovered physical endurance, Carolina shows us the value of an incredible career. But for real, not “Corinna-style”…
What’s your first cinema memory?
My dad owned a Super8 projector and a huge canvas when I was a child. My first cinema was, in fact, in my parents’ house living room. All Disney classics. It was beautiful.
What is it that usually makes you say “yes” to a project? Is there anything, in particular, you look for in a script?
The story we’re telling needs to appeal to me and the character needs to make me feel emotions, of any kind, even just a loud laugh.
Eleven years after “Boris – The Movie”, you’re back as Corinna Negri in “Boris” season 4. How has Carolina changed in the course of these years and how has your approach to your character consequently changed?
So many things have happened since we filmed the “Boris” pilot. Back then, I was a student at Centro Sperimentale with only a little experience but an endless will to do things. Now, I have more experience, but that very same will.
A great comeback which, I guess, has also been nostalgic, other than very emotional. What was your first reaction when you read the script and what was your first thought when you went back on set?
When I read the script, other than laughter, I felt a strong sense of belonging. When I went back on set, I found a team of amazing actor friends and we started playing again as if time had never passed.
