Transcript:Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End Premiere InterviewsRebecca Murray from About.com Hollywood Movies at the world premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.
Bill Nighy ('Davy Jones')How much fun is it to crawl back into this character again?
Bill Nighy: "It was very, very good fun. It was better fun perhaps than the second one my first one because by then we knew what it was going to look like. We knew that it work and it was successful, and the guys got an Oscar. It was kind of fabulous. The first one was daunting because you really didn't know if it was going to work. So we were able to have more fun this time. You knew that if I did something with my face or my body or vocally, that the guys would with it. You knew what was possible so it was good fun this time."
How would you describe this whole premiere experience?
Bill Nighy: "Oh man, I mean take your pick out of many, many words like intense, mad, wild, crazy. It's very, very lovely. It's just great to be in something that everybody loves so much, you know? I mean I've never seen anything like it. I don't know about you guys, you probably see a lot more premieres than I do, but I was very overwhelmed. They've queued since yesterday at 11 o'clock or something. Half of them are dressed as pirates. It's a gas."
Kevin R McNally ('Joshamee Gibbs')How easy is it for you to get back into this guy each time?
Kevin R McNally: "Well the last time it was very easy because there was no stop. We just went on doing the films, you know? The real problem has been going home and stopping being a smelly old pirate, really. I've had to learn how to wash, clean my teeth, and wash my hair again all over."
It is kind of strange to be finished after all those years of working on Pirates movies, isn't it?
Kevin R McNally: "Yeah, it's become part of all of our lives in a way. It's very, very hard. really. to think that this could be the last. This could be the last time "
Tom Hollander ('Lord Cutler Beckett')How does it feel to be the lead bad guy?
Tom Hollander: "I felt like I'd come home. I just felt like I'd finally No, no, I'm just joking. I don't know. It felt nice. It was nice. It's great to be a villain. You can do the things in life you'd get arrested for, so I liked it."
If this is the last film of the series and there are no more Pirates movies, what special memory are you going to take away from working on it?
Tom Hollander: "Well, there's so many. This kind of climatic thing is extraordinary. Everyone being here walking down this insanely long red carpet. But being in the Caribbean, actually, flying from anywhere you are in the world to do these scenes on sandbanks in the middle of nowhere with Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush and Keira Knightley - bizarre. And the people. It's always the people, isn't it?"
Martin Klebba ('Marty')How much fun is it to keep doing these Pirates movies?
Martin Klebba: "Man, I've been living the ride over and over and over again. I'll keep riding it. I love it; it's a great experience. I mean getting to work with Johnny Depp and Orlando. Does it get any better than that? It doesn't."
Greg Ellis ('Lieutenant Groves')How does your character change from the first Pirates movie to At World's End?
Greg Ellis: "Well, in the first movie I was a Royal Navy officer and then I switched allegiances to the East India Trading Company. And I'm one of Cutler Beckett's lieutenants."So you're a real villain in this.
Greg Ellis: "And I got a promotion as well, from officer to lieutenant which was nice."
Why do you think people love these Pirates movies so much?
Greg Ellis: "I think people have always had a fascination with pirates. You can be fun and devious and naughty and commit crimes and get away with it, and have fun. It's everything a little boy wants to be."
