Yesterday we had the three main men of Iron Sky sharing the same scene – that’s Chris Kirby who plays our American astronaut Washington, Götz Otto who plays the suave Nazi officer Klaus, and Udo Kier, who plays the Führer of the Moon Base – Wolfgang. The scene was the introduction scene for each of the characters, so it was quite a balancing act to give each one of them the recognition they have – especially since each of the actors are so very charismatic and can fill up one room easily with their presence. So balancing the scene out with each of them was quite a dabble, but I have a good feeling we got a really good kick out of it.

The good thing is that everyone brings different things to the table – the coolness of Götz is overshadowed by none but maybe the piercing gaze of Udo, while the relaxed jive of Chris brings a whole new flavor… It’s a good combination, and I’m enthusiastic to introduce these chaps to you when the film hits the theaters in the future.
