While visiting the set of Nimrod Antal's upcoming heist thriller Armored, we got a chance to talk with one of its stars, Amaury Nolasco. He plays Fernando Sucre on the popular Fox drama Prison Break. With the writers' strike finally over, it looks like production on the long-in-hiatus program might be revving back to life. We chatted a little bit about the show with Amaury. This is what he had to say:
When are you heading back?
Amaury Nolasco: From what I hear, we are going back in May. I don't know if you saw the cliffhanger. I'm back in prison. Its going to be pretty exciting. My girl is still pregnant. It's the longest pregnancy in TV history. People forget that with our time line, it has only been two weeks. The whole series, since season one, has been three months. If you think about it, she still has six more months to be pregnant. Fernando is the ultimate friend. I am very proud of this character. It is a beautiful relationship that he has with Michael. That is very rare nowadays. That you would take the plunge for your boy. Not only that, the third season had a whole new experience because there was a relationship with me and Lincoln. It was built up there. It's one of those shows. I know people keep asking, "How many more times can you go back to prison?" I don't know what is going to happen. I don't know what is going on in the mind of the writers. I don't think we will be going back too many more times. I don't know. But the writing is so good that as an actor, I just get out of the way. I let the writers speak.
Do you know how everything is going to come together with this new season?
Amaury Nolasco: I don't like to know what is going to happen. I like to read as they go, script wise. I know that T-bag is still inside. And so is Bellick. There is definitely going to be a relationship there, going on. I don't like to know what is going to happen. I take it script-by-script and let it develop.
