With Jorgo Papasoglou we can also welcome the second leading actor (besides Marcus Zölch) from the successful road movie documentary Sie nannten ihn Spencer by Karl-Martin Pold.
Born in 1974, Jorgo is blind from birth and has been a big fan of Bud Spencer/Terence Hill since his earliest childhood. He used to sit in front of the television with the tape recorder and recorded the sound of the film with the room microphone. Although in a correspondingly creepy quality, the main thing was that he was able to enjoy the recordings a few more times afterwards, so to speak as a radio play.
According to Jorgo, his fascination for the films lies in the simplicity of the matter. They are always funny and create a good atmosphere. No drama, the fight “good against evil” is absurd because the opponents are never really evil either. One is equally happy about the villains embodied by Riccardo Pizzuti (whom we also have at CCON | COMIC CON GERMANY).
And in the end you always leave the cinema in a good mood. This is also the message that the films convey to Jorgo Papasogolou. Living with a disability is not always easy and certainly brings one or two dramas with it. But if you look at this with a smile and a wink, without taking yourself and the associated circumstances too seriously, it is worth a lot.
The characters of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill are always “underdogs” who are confronted with the worst possible circumstances. But somehow they fight their way through and keep coming back to their feet. This is what Jorgo took from the Spencer/Hill adventures and what has helped him in many situations and still helps him today.
Look forward with us to what the likeable Berliner has to report about the shoot of Sie nannten ihn Spencer and his fascination at CCON | COMIC CON GERMANY.
