He will be seen in the soon to release “The Transporter: Refueled” as Frank Martin, a role that he is playing after Jason Statham in a way immortalized. The trailer looks fantastic but just when you start to think about Ed Skrien’s other roles, “Deadpool” trailer too drops in and you get to see a bald Ed looking extremely convincing and conniving in the role of Ajax. The actor recently spoke more about his role in the movie.
According to Just Jared, Ed is nothing like his on-screen evil and sadist character Ajax who does some unimaginable things to Wade Wilson at the Weapon X program. The actor in real life is completely opposite when compared to his on-screen character as he stopped recently smiling for photographs and signing autographs for fans outside AOL studios in New York. The actor describes himself as someone who likes to spend his spare time with his kid and taking him to playground.
He is not bothered when people don’t recognize him; he in fact likes if things stay that way. With the kind of movies that he is doing, this might just get more and more difficult for him because he is slowly gaining credibility and appreciation as a performer. About playing the character Ajax in the upcoming “Deadpool” movie, he says that the character is great fun because he’s so evil and horrible.
Ed also mentioned that in real life whenever he sees a fight happening, it just makes him feel sick but if the said fight is staged at a controlled environment where he is aware that no one is going to get hurt because of it, he doesn’t have any problem shooting for it. In a case like this, it becomes fun to damage and torture someone.
People was all praises for him when the “The Transporter: Refueled” actor mentioned to them that he just a normal dude who likes to live the most ordinary life. Apart from that the media outlet also reported that he likes to do his own stunts, was a rapper and an artist before and loves playing a bad guy on screen. “The Transporter: Refueled” is out on September 4th.
