David Vallon Talks Dawn Treader
The Queensland Times interviewed David Vallon recently about his role in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader where he plays Governor Gumpas. Here’s what he had to say.
“I am Governor Gumpas who is the Governor of the Lone Islands,” he said.
“He is corrupt. Most, if not all, of the people who arrive (on the island) end up being sold into slavery.
“Of course the heroes get caught up in it and Gumpas, being the baddie, gets his just desserts in the end. It’s a small role, but key to the story line.”
While Mr Vallon wasn’t able to talk in detail about his role or experiences on the set while filming is under way, he said he had jumped at the chance of working with director, Michael Apted.
“He directed Gorillas in the Mist which is one of my all time favourite movies,” he said.
“He is so easy to work with.”
