Before Camelot, it was called Dice Iro
Alexandre Astier: Dies Ero, the day of wrath. The short film I made 20 years ago that only takes place around the round table was called Dice Ero. And Camelot, there’s a lot more telling in the story of this thing, because it’s Arthur’s fortress.
Camelot’s spelling has changed
Alexandre Astier: Realizing that people said “Kamelot” because there was only one “T”, I rehearsed a second to force people to say “Kamelot” because “Kamelot”, I don’t like.
Alexandre Astier is a master
Alexandre Astier: Yes, yes, it’s true. I have land in Scotland. I was offered a square meter with a tree in Scotland. So, a priori, I am Lord of Scotland because I have land in Scotland.
Thomas Pesquet is a big fan of Camelot
Alexandre Astier: I learned that he loved Camelot. His team went into production requesting episodes of the series along with their entertainment package. Of course I was very proud to be a part of it. But I said to myself: “Ah, since he’s up, maybe he likes it. He will miss the film, suddenly“So, I proposed to him, but to see him talk, all alone, in private message.
Alexandre Astier is a musician
Alexandre Astier: I am a double bass player and bassist. I always managed to write music for everything I did. That’s why I never gave up.
Kaamelot. has 3 jokes per minute
Alexandre Astier: What is this count? But I hate, I hate the word joke. It’s like a gag, yuck. I don’t want to do stuff like this at all. Ah no, no, no, I’m like… No, there’s no joke in Camelot. it’s useless. Here it is, Camelot it’s boring, it’s sad.
Camelot is dedicated to Louis de Funeso
Alexandre Astier: True, the Camelot series is entirely dedicated to Louis de Funes. This is the best I can do as a tribute to the person who inspired me to do popular comedy. I said, “I’ll try to dedicate something bigger to him.” Well, it’s not huge but anyway, that’s the big one I have, me, this whole series.
Arthur is the King of Brittany
Alexandre Astier: This is wrong, this is very wrong. It almost hurts me like that when things go horribly wrong. I know there are people who are a little confused because they say he is the king of Breton. He is not the King of Breton, a Great Britain and a little Brittany. And above all, the kingdom we are concerned with is called the Kingdom of the Loggers. And this empire extended from the north of the island of Brittany to Scotland, then in Caledonia, at that time. And it goes to the Aquitaine boundary which is at the bottom of the Pyrenees.
movie is 1 year late
Alexandre Astier: There is no delay. I don’t have a date, I’m not… I’m not a station master, I don’t have a schedule. Crap, in the end. No, it happens when it happens, that’s all.
You should use piles cream to look younger
Alexandre Astier: Don’t do this at home. Oh no, I don’t take responsibility for people who will end up with faces like these. It’s the stuff of a makeup artist who says, “Don’t worry, I’ll put your hemorrhoid cream under your eyes, it’ll sting a little.”
The script is already sent to the actors
Alexandre Astier: this is wrong. Except for Sting, who got it long ago. But because he had to learn his line in French. Also, he had the script and my voice. I recorded my voice for him. Me, I don’t surround anyone, already it’s because sometimes I don’t have texts. It’s just that I didn’t make them, so I’m not going to send them, I don’t have them.
Your grandmother used to play in Camelot
Alexandre Astier: Not my grandmother I have 6 out of 7 kids who play in Camelot. The thing is that he was born on the 7th day during the post-production of the film. So he is not there, he will be in the next. There you have it, my mother, my father, my half-brother, his mother. They’re comedians, eh. I didn’t get them from a bakery or a deli.
They have a lot of expression “we have big”
Alexandre Astier: No, because I haven’t invented it yet. She was in front of me. Because I find it easier to say, easier to write. There are people who write it on protest boards. I really like. I am glad that the public is giving themselves permission for the language. I like that this is what they like.
After Part 3 of the movie, it’s the end of Camelot
Alexandre Astier: This is the end of the saga. No more saga, yes.
