Tougher even than the love scenes for Hammer was one sequence in which Oliver dances with abandon at a disco to “Love My Way” by the Psychedelic Furs. “That was not fun — I don’t really enjoy dancing,” he says. “I very quickly become the 6-foot-5 gangly guy that’s very easy to spot from across the room.” In the scene, the locals, including Elio and some summering French girls, are entranced by the Adonis with the sick moves. “So Luca calls ‘action’ and literally everyone is ogling me, including, like, 50 extras off camera. And the music’s pretty quiet, so we can record the dialogue. Here I am, dancing to this quiet music. And I’m just like, 'I hate myself! I hate my life!'
It's so cool that you mentioned that Mr. Wheezy dances salsa and merengue, because I'm Latin American and those are the dances I love most (and the only dances I can do without looking dumb lol). Also it's a huge compliment for a character to be able to dance those dances because they require good leading skills and teamwork for both partners. It's just cool that you're adding a bit of Latin culture into your headcanon of this character. Love it!
