Speaks to us about filming Highlander Endgame
LW: I understand that you have a small role as Adam Copeland's Henchman
in Endgame. What can you tell us about that?
FBM: Well I don't think I would be giving too much away to tell you, I
play a Highwayman and I'm in one of the more humorous scenes in the movie,
it's an actual battle sequence where I and several of the evil immortals
attack the principal actors. It was a lot of fun to do. Even though I had
choreographed it, I had to practice like everyone else.
LW: What was it like working with Christopher Lambert? Was it
really different than working with Adrian Paul, who you already had a four
year history with?
FBM: Well the first thing I was preparing to deal with was the
whole vision thing, which never materialized. I was very surprised. He was
there right on. He, just like Adrian is a very dedicated actor. He would
always turn back to me and ask how the sequence went, was it 90%, 95% and
he was always willing to do it one more time, always asking what he could
do to improve on it. He wanted to get it right. He had obviously had some
training on the Katana from the first movies, but just like with Adrian I
had to teach him my terminology. But it worked out really well,
Christopher is one of the nicest guys I've met. Both Adrian and
Christopher did all there own stunts as well. They are both very physical
LW: Did Donnie Yen help out with any of the choreography?
FBM: Donnie helped out mostly with the martial arts aspects of
the fights. He did a great job, I think everyone will be very impressed
with the fight scenes in the movie.
Braun also spoke of the filming in Romania and some of it's inherent
FBM: Romania was very difficult. I mean the people there were
going through some very real hardships and overall it was a difficult
place to be. It's a very beautiful country and is very visually striking.
The crews sometimes spoke very little English. It was a definite
challenge. When we got to England it was a little bit easier, but the long
hours were brutal and the weather was a definite factor. It was very cold
