We got to interview William Levy and Alicia Sanz about their new Latin action thriller movie En Brazos De Un Asesino. The movie also stars Roberto Sosa, Adrian Lastra, Dalisa Alegria, Ettore D’ Alessandro, Jean Jean, Alessia Seravalle and is directed by Matias Moltrasio.
En Brazos de un Asesino means, “in the arms of an assassin,” and the movie is adapted from J. A Redmerski’s thiller, “Killing Sarai”.
William talks about the journey from actor to co-writer of this film and how he wanted to take control of his career. Also, now, as a producer, he can create opportunities for other people. He recalls how watching The Godfather in Cuba and seeing Andy Garcia who is Cuban inspired him to become an actor. The Latino market in America provides the number one audience going to the movies yet they only represent 3 percent of the roles. He wants to do something to change this!
William comments on the clever choreography in the riveting fight scene between his character, Victor and his brother, Niklas, played by Adrian Lastra while Alicia reveals what action movie had the most impact on her growing up.
Also, Alicia explains what drew her to the project and how reading the books by J. A Redmerski helped her prepare for her role. Can we expect a sequel to this open-ended story? She hopes so!

Alicia Sanz Interview
Synopsis: Victor (William Levy) has a deep secret – he is a cold-blooded assassin. Smooth-talking and seductive, Victor was raised to do one thing only, which is to kill for money. When he is sent to the home of a brutal drug lord to collect payment for his most recent hit, he encounters the beautiful Sarai (Alicia Sanz), who has been forced to spend the last 9 years of her life with the drug lord. After Victor leaves the compound, Sarai seizes her chance at freedom by hiding out in Victor’s car. But things don’t go as planned and instead of being transported back to her home, she finds herself free from one dangerous man only to be caught in the clutches of another. While on the run from the vengeful drug lord and his brutal henchmen, Victor’s conscience catches up with him as he risks all that he stood for to protect his captive. In the end, the power Sarai unknowingly holds over Victor and their undeniable attraction may be what places her right in the arms of a killer.
