Former WWE star Batista spoke with LatinPost.com to promote the new James Bond “007: Spectre” movie. Here are the highlights.
Let’s shift to your transition from a professional wrestler to an actor. Was it a tough one?
It was actually really rough. It didn’t seem to start rolling until Guardians was released. The first film I ever did, I was with WWE and it was a favor to a friend. When I did it, I realized I was a horrible actor. It pissed me off because I left feeling embarrassed. It made me want to prove myself and get better so I could get a second chance. And there you go.
What was the most exciting scene that you took a part in in this film?
We did this elaborate car chase through Rome that was incredible. They literally shut down the city for us at night. When we driving these exotic cars through Rome it was insane. It felt like I was really in a James Bond film.
