- Gael Garcia Bernal
Andrew Gower has been cast in Rosewater, a film directed by Jon Stewart (The Daily Show) and starring Gael Garcia Bernal (The Science of Sleep, Babel). He will play the part of Jimmy the Avid Editor.
Stewart also wrote the screenplay which was adapted from Maziar Bahari‘s 2011 book Then They Came For Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity and Survival. The book recounts the author/journalist’s time in Iran, where he was supposed to go for one week to cover the country’s national elections. Instead, he was held in an Iranian prison for 118 days, tortured and interrogated by a mysterious man who the writer described as smelling of rosewater. (Source)
Andrew tweeted on 28th July that he was on his way to Jordan where the filming is taking place.
