A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to catch up with Efren Ramirez who played the Pedro on Napoleon Dynamite at Fan Expo Canada.
We chatted about a variety of topics including how the film has been able to achieve iconic status as a cult classic. I also asked Ramirez if he knew that he was working on a project that was magical during the filming process and if he had a hint based on the chemistry of the cast. I asked him about the double-edged sword of playing a character as popular as Pedro and if there is a fear for it being the only role he will be remembered for. Ramirez also updated me on the new projects he is working.
Finally, he gave me a lesson on how to do a Pedro impression. You can judge how I did for yourself!
