por Bill Nighy, Actor. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Llegué a Tokio hace unos días, después de viajar desde Los Ángeles en donde estaba trabajando con botas y un uniforme nazi. Así que es un alivio ponerme un traje de calle. Estuve en Tokio en una ocasión anterior, cuando filmábamos “Piratas del Caribe”, en mi papel de “Davy Jones” o “El Calamar” como me conocen en Japón.

Yesterday, I had an interesting career change for a day: I was a corn on the cob in Oxfam’s biofuels performance.

As all the camera’s pointed at me, it felt like being a star, but it was a little scary at the same time. Everyone else was safely guarded from the cameras by their ‘big heads’, while I was out in the open. It was also quite tiring, because I had to squat down all the time.

I arrived in Tokyo a few days ago, having flown in from Los Angeles where I had been operating in jack boots and a nazi uniform. So it was a bit of a relief to get into a lounge suit.

I’ve been to Tokyo once before, when filming Pirates of the Carribean, acting as “Davy Jones” or “The Squid” as I’m known in Japan. On this occasion I was warmly welcomed by Oxfam representatives and felt very pleased to be here to draw attention to the important meeting ahead.
