MARTIN SHEEN IN CONVERSATION AT DIFF

Mon Dec 09,2013

Legendary actor Martin Sheen spoke to a sold-out crowd at the Madinat Jumeirah today at the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF). In a career spanning five decades, Sheen has worked with Hollywood’s most prominent actors, including Francis Ford Coppola, Terrence Malick, Olive Stone and Martin Scorsese. 

Referencing his work with Scorsese, Sheen commented: ”I adore Martin Scorsese and would jump at the opportunity to work with him again. He had a love of actors that I have never seen a director express before,” and contemplating future projects added: “I’d love to work with the Coen brothers. I’m very intrigued by their work”.

His conversation with Nashen Moodley covered a range of topics including his experience of fame, his life-long dedication to activism, and cherished moments of his career.

DIFF’s tenth edition runs until December 14.
