You've seen Peter Mensah in tons of things but most notably 300, Hulk and Hildago. He's usually the menacing or authoratative guy who gets in the way of the main character but in real life, he couldn't be nicer. Maybe I shouldnt say that... I don't want to ruin his authoritative cred!
Peter is starring in two great upcoming projects, James Cameron's Avatar and Spartacus: Blood and Sand.
In my exclusive interview I did at this summers Comic-Con, we talk about his Spartacus character (Doctore), working with green screens and he even offers up some advice to actors.
Tell me about your character.
I get to play a character called Doctore on Spartacus, and Doctore is the gladiator trainer. And it's his job fundamentally to bring up the up and coming new gladiators and also to prepare sort of the well-schooled gladiators for each and every fight. And you know what's fascinating about doing this is you sort of get to see how Roman society worked way back when, I think 73 B.C. And the fact that these stadiums could house 80,000 people, would come in and watch these fights. Physically. They didn't have pay-per-view. They had to show up.
