Sebastian Talks with New York Moves Magazine

NewYorkMoves.com — There’s a sense, when you’re watching celebrities on the red carpet at the premiere of their newest blockbuster, that they’re as comfortable in front of screaming legions of fans as they might be sitting on their couch at home. There’s also a sense that they enjoy standing there, squinting under flashing lights and deafened by photographers crying out for their attention–and may even be basking in it.

Not so for Sebastian Stan. The evening I spoke to him was also the evening premiere of Captain America: Winter Soldier in LA. Although he was about to take a turn on the red carpet himself, he didn’t seem to know what to feel about the madness about to ensue.

“It’s not a normal thing,” Sebastian says of the red carpet experience. “You just see all the fans that have gathered and they’ve been there since…I don’t know what hour. And it’s one of the best feelings in the world.”

That’s not to say he takes the feeling as his Moment of Arrival. “I find that if feels better always being on the chase, as opposed to feeling like you’ve never arrived somewhere. Because arriving somewhere also means kind of an end… If anything you’ve arrived at one point and then it just sort of begins again.”

(We’ll see how it feels after Captain America: The Winter Soldier, catapults his name even farther into the Marvel fandom than Captain America: The First Avenger did.)

Sebastian Stan has had his share of beginnings. He’s lived in several countries. As a kid he grew up in Romania then moved to Vienna and finally New York when he was 12. While New Yorkers might have grown up playing Captain America with their friends, Captain America was never on Sebastian’s radar. “I didn’t even grow up with comic books,” he says. “I grew up in Communism. I think that’s the bigger coincidence–that I ended up playing somebody that has a red star on their shoulder.”
“[The move] was a long time ago,” he adds, “but at the same time I feel like it was the right age because I adapted pretty quickly. I had an accent and I was also so self-conscious–some people feel I still have an accent. But it got me to where I am today, and I’m happy it happened the way it happened.”

Sebastian still calls New York home–largely because he was just more accustomed to the urban way of life, as opposed to sort of more suburbia, spread-out type living. “For me it’s as simple as that, it’s just where we came when me and my family came to this country.”

From the first play he ever performed in, Sebastian knew that acting would be his calling. Since then he’s made it his business to be a triple threat: acting on television (Political Animals), on stage (he played Hal Carter in William Inge’s Picnic last year), and now stepping up to put his focus on film. When asked if he has a preference for a particular media platform, he pauses thoughtfully before deciding.

“They have their own challenges… I don’t necessarily prefer one over the others. At the moment, the movie experience is something I’m currently more focused on. But at the end of the day, it comes down to the material. … If it’s something I read and really respond to, or just get a feeling like ‘I have to somehow do this’, I gauge it by that.”

Flawed and conflicted characters are his preferred ones–as they often are with actors, and it’s easy to see why. “It’s sort of like going to a restaurant,” he says, “You have a menu… and you see all the things you can order; and you’re asking the waiter, ‘Hey, what’s in that? What kind of sauce is that? How do you cook that?’ It’s like wanting to order the richest thing [on the menu]. Rich characters are perfect characters. They’re always swinging to either side of the pendulum…” He chuckles and rushes to assure: “It doesn’t mean they would ever be fun to live in real life; I definitely beg to differ on that.”

Flawed? Conflicted? Rich? These adjectives certainly describe several of the characters Sebastian has graced us with – TJ Hammond and Bucky Barnes most definitely included. Not only because of the characters but also the space which they occupy. Concerning TJ, Political Animals followed the life of a prominent political family and all their personal troubles–and how those troubles, TJ’s in particular, followed them into the public spotlight.

“We live in a world where celebrity culture is really massive… For [TJ], [coming up with his character] was more like, [looking at] some of these kids of really public figures that end up taking the weight [of their parents’ public lives] and how they deal with it.”

Sebastian is a man of action as ‘The Winter Soldier’ (Video)

USAToday.com — It wasn’t long ago that most of the explosions in Sebastian Stan’s on-screen life were of the sort caused by catty teen girls on New York City’s Upper East Side.

The stage-trained actor has left the TV soap-opera drama of Gossip Girl behind. Now, he’s armed with a cool costume, heavy weaponry, an abundance of psychological issues and, well, a metal arm as the complicated antagonist of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Drawing from a Marvel Comics story line, Stan’s Winter Soldier character is actually Bucky Barnes, the best friend and former partner of Captain America (Chris Evans) from World War II.

Like Cap, Bucky was thought to be killed in the line of duty. But instead of being encased in ice for 70 years like his buddy, Bucky was brainwashed and turned into an assassin who now works for Hydra. His mission: Eliminate Cap, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and pretty much anyone who gets in Hydra’s way.

“Bucky had to essentially become like part machine,” says Stan, who reprises the role from 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger.

While the Winter Soldier is essentially a new character, the actor revisited some aspects of Bucky he established in the first movie for continuity’s sake — which are important when Cap and his new foe figure out their connection in the heat of battle.

“Those are some meaty scenes, because it is a meaty concept,” Evans says. “Waking up 70 years later is heavy enough, and then seeing someone you thought was dead — that’s big. And he’s evil!” Continue reading

Lights, Camera, Action: Screen Play

ClevelandMagazine.comWhile actor Sebastian Stan completely changed his look for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, his character Bucky Barnes goes from being Captain America’s best friend to his arch-nemesis — the Winter Soldier. He opens up to us about the nuances of acting in a mask and the unprecedented access our city provided for the film.

It’s exciting to see my character take this turn and show more sides of him. But, at the same time, it was challenging. I felt like I had a lot of homework to do. This character is so complex and tragic in a way and there are so many sides to him that hopefully we will see in the future.

The Winter Soldier wears a mask for most of the film, which made it difficult for me to convey emotions. But it also kind of helped in a way. I felt when I was looking at myself in the mirror that I couldn’t recognize myself at all. I had to pay more attention to the way I behaved, the way I moved and the physicality of it all.

A lot of the close combat was very difficult for us to shoot. It was hard because your heart is racing and you’re trying to get it right. But you’re also going over it in your mind, because you have rehearsed it so many times and you’re concerned with not hurting the other person.

I did feel bad about shutting down the [West] Shoreway and the traffic problems that it caused, but I honestly never thought we would be granted that kind of access. Most times with these films you end up working with a green screen. I feel like you can really tell the difference with this one, because we didn’t.

As an actor, it helps so much to be able to turn up on set and see an actual highway be shut down and explosions everywhere. You get goosebumps.

Fastfive with Sebastian Stan

Humble Beginnings
His interest in acting began when his family moved to the US when he was a child. He had a meaty role in teen horror movie The Covenant (2006) but his showbiz career took off only after appearing as a recurring guest star in hit TV series Gossip Girl in 2007.

Career Longevity
Being a part of the huge Captain America franchise means no more bit parts for Stan. The 30-year-old is reportedly contracted to Marvel for nine pictures.

Stan told comic-book news website Newsarama.com that the Marvel contract is “great job security”.

Frosty Villain
Winter Soldier gets into a lot of hand-to-hand combat.

Stand said: “I would walk around the house all day flipping this plastic knife around and practicing my moves. I wanted my movements to feel natural and I wanted to be able to perform these sequences without thinking about it.”

His Inspiration
Stan said he hoped to honour the legacy of great cinematic villains, particularly the late Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight (2008).

Said Stan: “I can’t compare myself to anything like that. He is an inspiration. That was his most memorable performance, the Joker.”

Sweet Guy
Stan may play a baddie but lead actor Chris Evans said Stan is “no way like his reel character”.

“Sebastian is the sweetest guy on the planet! He wouldn’t even kill a fly. It was really nice to have such as good guy on the set.”
