Juan el Mala Vida de Los Albericoques
Almeria has a history of providing superb locations for films. It started with the westerns and biblical epics of the 60s. Only last year the BBC filmed episodes of Dr.Who and Silent Witness here, Almeria doubling as the Wild West and Afghanistan. In October, Ridley Scott starts filming the blockbuster, ‘Exodus’, near Rodalquilar. The timeless landscape of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata will replicate Ancient Egypt. During the summer auditions took place for extras in the movie. Yesterday evening we were chatting to Juan in Las Negras and he told us he has got a part in the film. He has lived here all his life and we cannot recall him ever working. He says the pay is good and we wish him luck.
