Actor Adam Driver reportedly attacked actress Lidia Franco, his co-star in The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, when the pair were filming the film, it has been confirmed.
During a podcast interview with Radio Comercial’s Era o que Faltava, Franco made the comment (translated from Portuguese), I keep a very bad experience from this film because of Adam Driver.
During a podcast interview with Radio Comercial’s Era o que Faltava, Franco said, she keeps a very bad experience from this film because of Adam Driver.
She then allegedly recognized his acting talent but said that he is a very bad person. Franco, 76, went on to say that the scene did not have something to do with the attack.
It was a camouflaged assault, with a chair, she claimed. With regards to the supposed crime, she did not go into further details. Franco revealed what happened afterward, claiming that she was allowed to leave the set by the production team, but said that they could not do anything more. She was allowed to leave, but legally, as she said, there was nothing they could do, as translated on Reddit.
Adam Driver More information about the incident:
The actress also commented on Driver’s impression before shooting, saying he was challenging and demanding. One of the things he began doing in Spain was to insist that all the technicians leave the plateau during rehearsals.
He requested it and continued to do it in Portugal, but she claimed that some Portuguese technicians declined. I saw at least one from the rear, leaving the studio.
He requested, by law, I suppose, that no one should look at him. If they were aiming, they automatically shot the extras. And it has happened. The Man Who Killed Don Quixote was co-written and directed by Terry Gilliam (Monty Python) and first released in 2018, following decades of being infamously in creation hell.
Stellan Skarsgård, Olga Kurylenko, Joana Ribeiro, Óscar Jaenada, Jason Watkins, Sergi López, Rossy de Palma, Jordi Mollà, and Jonathan Pryce also star as Don Quixote, in addition to Driver.
At this point, Driver, or anyone else involved in the film, does not seem to have commented on Franco’s allegations. This is the first time Driver has encountered allegations of this sort, it seems.
After hearing a recording of his film Marriage Story played on his headphones, the actor once stormed out of an interview on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, but no violence was mentioned in this case.
The driver later confirmed that he had told producers that he did not want to hear or see his own work, and they said, in exchange, that they instructed him when to take off his headphones so that the clip would not be heard.
