Dexter’s Aimee Garcia talks ‘RoboCop’ remake, her role and her co-stars

Aimee Garcia, best known for her role on Showtime’s “Dexter,” talked with Fanhattan about her role in “RoboCop” alongside Joel  Kinnaman and Gary Oldman.

“Well, she’s Gary Oldman’s assistant so she’s a fellow scientist. It’s just been great. Yesterday I had a scene with Joel and Gary and I really felt like I was doing a play. I haven’t done theater in a while so it was just so wonderful to work with such talented actors. I have to say, I think Dexter really was so instrumental in helping me feel completely comfortable working with Gary Oldman who just got nominated for an Oscar and Joel who won the Swedish version of the Oscar, so I didn’t feel out of place, I didn’t feel overwhelmed because I’ve been working with Michael C. Hall so I feel very comfortable and she’s a great character. She has her Ph. D. from MIT. She and Gary Oldman kind of bring Robocop to life and she is whip smart and just such a fun, smart role because I think to be part of an experiment of this kind of epic proportion, you have to be really well read and schooled in everything from robotics to physics to brain computer interface to chemistry to biology. It’s great to be able to play someone who is super, super smart.”

The actress was keen to dodge details about the RoboCop suit.

“I can’t tell you that. I’ve been so trained with Dexter, I’m paranoid so I never say anything because I feel like I don’t want to take away the fun for you.”

There is a constant desire to maintain security, stop leaked photos etc…the young actresses discussed this somewhat.

“Look, it’s a huge franchise. It’s a highly anticipated film. I think it kind of comes with the territory so the crew is just focused on shooting. Given the track record of the director, coupled with the cast of Abbie Cornish and Michael Keaton and Joel and Gary, I joked yesterday that the top 10 people in the Robocop cast have all either been nominated or won a Tony, an Emmy, an Oscar or a Golden Globe. It’s almost put together like an independent film but with a franchise budget, so I’m so excited. Like I said, yesterday my scene with Gary and Joel, I felt like I was doing a play. I didn’t feel like I was doing a sci-fi green screen movie and I think that that’s really going to make it hopefully a classic film and make it more like a Matrix type of movie, that not only is cool with the special effects and the greenscreen and the explosions, but it also makes you think and really challenges you intellectually. I think it’s going to be great because so far all the footage I’ve seen and anything that I’ve been a part of has just completely exceeded my expectations.”

Garcia says the set is more like a play than that of a big budget Hollywood film and is hopeful of the end result.

“I didn’t feel like I was doing a sci-fi green screen movie and I think that that’s really going to make it hopefully a classic film and make it more like a Matrix type of movie, that not only is cool with the special effects and the greenscreen and the explosions, but it also makes you think and really challenges you intellectually. I think it’s going to be great because so far all the footage I’ve seen and anything that I’ve been a part of has just completely exceeded my expectations.”
