In an interview with Interview Magazine where other celebrities got to ask her a question, it was revealed that, outside of performing on screen, Rudolph is passionate about music, responding to a question Paul Reubens asked her about what she is most passionate about. Rudolph answered: “Music. Ever since I was a kid, if I fell in love with a musician, I’d daydream that I was them up on stage singing. If I’m ever watching someone playing live, to this day I have to see their shoes. I get very obsessive about it. It makes them a real person for me somehow. I think I’ve always been too scared to play music and be that vulnerable in front of people, so much so that I’ve always put the idea of seriously doing it on the backburner. But the dream is always there.”

Olivier Martinez is set to appear in Loot in a recurring capacity, playing the role of Jean-Pierre.

On the big screen, he’s worked on Dark Tide, The Physician, Paul, Apostle of Christ, and Mosquito State. In Texas Rising, Martinez played a unique character. In an interview with Desde Hollywood, Martinez talked about the role in detail, saying: “As a Frenchman of Spaniard origins, playing a very important and controversial Mexican figure like Santa Anna, I had to be careful and try to learn what really happened. The American point of view is that Texans were the good guys and Mexicans the bad guys. I went to the history books and I talked to many Mexicans. According to them, Santa Anna was a brave and charismatic warrior. It is very important as a foreigner in general, and as a Latino in particular, to avoid being typecast in an American movie. The key thing is who the director is. Roland Joffé is an English-French filmmaker with his own point of view. I believe that Latinos are well portrayed in Texas Rising. I don’t care if I play the hero or the villain, I just want to play an interesting character.”
