SKSM: Could you start by telling a little about yourself? Who are you and what do you do?
Surete Martins: My name is Surete Martins, I’m graduated in Economy. I started to do theater as a hobby, however I was in love with the art of acting. I’m currently studying theater now.
SKSM: How did you get involved in the movie Zornit?
Surete Martins: I was invited to the movie. I did a play with Carlinhos Duarte, the actor who plays my husband, and when he was called to do Zornit, he pointed me to the director.
SKSM: What do you think you have in history that draws so much people?
Surete Martins: The curiosity and suspense.
SKSM: Did you have to take a test or was it written directly to you?
Surete Martins: I did not test, I was invited to participate.
SKSM: You worked with Marcello Trigo on this movie, how was that?
Surete Martins: Yes, it was great! Marcello is of such generosity, he makes us feel at ease, so that he can extract the best from each professional.
SKSM: Was there any funny or special moment when they made the movie that you would like to talk about?
Surete Martins: A special moment was in the free hours for the rest of the actors. I talked with Rosario Gonçalves (art director) and we talked about her struggle to graduate with her son João Paulo in the same cinema course. I think it is a fantastic thing, in the same classroom, mother and son. João has special needs, and his mother, Rosario, enrolled in the same course at the university so that her son could study. So she, who until then was just a housewife dedicated to her husband and son, became an art director of the independent cinema circuit.
SKSM: Do you still have any contact with the team / cast from that moment? If yes with whom?
Surete Martins: Yes, with Marcello Trigo, Emilia Marques and Carlinhos Duarte.
SKSM: What are you working as an actor these days?
Surete Martins: I am participating in a play that will be released in the year 2018.
SKSM: Are you a fan of Stephen King’s work?
Surete Martins: Yes.
SKSM: What is one thing people would be surprised to hear about you?
Surete Martins: There is nothing, because I am very transparent in my life.
SKSM: Is there anything else you would like to tell the fans reading this interview?
Surete Martins: Keep watching movies and going to the theater.
SKSM: Would you like to add something else?
Surete Martins: Let more people watch Zornit and fall in love by the movie more and more.
