Banderas discussed his impending part in Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny while speaking with the Inside Total Film podcast (via Collider). He also talked about his interactions with Harrison Ford. Below, you can read what Banderas had to say in full:
It was beautiful to just be close to [Harrison Ford]. Some interviewers today, they say to me, ‘Oh my God, I was 7 when Shrek 2 came out, and so now I’m 27 and interviewing you and I’ve been watching your movies since that time.’ But the same thing happened to me with Harrison. I remember the first time I saw Indiana Jones, and I flipped out. So just being there, it was beautiful. My character is very little. He’s not a bad guy, he’s a friend of Indiana, helping at some point in the movie. But it’s not very big.
