My sit-down conversation with Martin Campbell didn't take place under the best of circumstances, through no one's fault. It was just one of those things. It was the press day at the Casa Del Mar, and things ended up running super-late. My interview was supposed to be at 12:05, and at 2:00, I was finally ushered into the room where Campbell was sitting, visibly agitated that his lunch was being delayed by yet another reporter. Even worse, I knew that Devin Faraci from CHUD was waiting to talk to him after me, meaning his lunch was even further away than he thought.
It's hard enough to have a real conversation in these circumstances, but when things get this sort of tight, what you get is pretty much a quick set of cursory responses. I credit Campbell for attempting to dampen his own irritation with the situation, and I hope we were able to touch on some points that are of interest. You be the judge:
Martin: How are you?
Drew: Very good, sir. So... my 4-year-old is now a fan of your work.
Martin: Oh, good.
Drew: They sent us the Disney "Zorro" to watch first...
Martin: Oh, have they?
Drew: ... and then when the BluRay for your first Zorro film showed up, he insisted and it became like a big event this week in the house.
