“Cassandro” had its world premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, where it received positive reviews for Gael García Bernal’s lead performance as a gay Mexican luchador struggling to balance his professional and personal life in 1980s El Paso, Texas. Gael was kind enough to lend us a few minutes of his time to speak about his role in the film, his love for lucha libra, how intimate sex scenes have evolved since his work on “Y tu mamá también,” and more. Be sure to check out the film, which is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video and is up for your consideration at the 96th Academy Awards in all eligible categories, including Best Actor. Thank you, and enjoy!
