Martin Sheen Explores Faith, Family and New Film
Walking the Camino
Sheen is not slowing down anytime soon. He plans to walk the entire Camino, yes he's serious. He turned 71 on Aug. 3.
“Actually, I’ve done it a couple of times but not with Emilio. The most, I guess, you know, Emilio and I reckoned that we kind of walked at least half of it just filming this time because we’d walk it to practice the scenes, then we’d walk it again and again and again to get it right and then we’d walk it again through the coverage, the singles and the two shots and the wide angles and then we would just walk through what we call montages, you know, where he’d have his cameras set up on the top of a mountain like and we would look like little ants walking in the distance but we were carrying the walkie talkies so he could tell us keep walking, stay in line, move more to your right, move there, so we really did walk an awful lot of it, which was great. I feel confident, yeah, I could do it. I just need that. I would need a more lengthy time. I would need at least eight weeks to do it without really having it be a burden. I could do it comfortably I think in eight weeks.”
