‘Benedict Cumberbatch was amazing, Gerard Butler and Maisie Williams were great but Nick Nolte was one of the nicest men ever.’

If you have been to see Angel Has Fallen, the third instalment of the franchise with Gerard Butler as the lead, then you may have recognised one face.

The owner and head coach of Gracie Barra, a Jiu Jitsu group in Yate, Antonio Bustorff has made appearances in a number of high-profile BBC shows including Sherlock and Doctor Who but his latest on screen appearance was arguably the biggest.

“It was an amazing experience when my agent told me about Angel,” Antonio said.

“I always wanted to be an actor when I was young.

“I was on set for around a week and we shot a fight scene with Nick Nolte.

“They cut a lot of the scene but you learn to accept that when you are in the industry.

“I have studied at a number of different places learning as much as I could so it has all helped.”

Antonio was born in Portugal but moved to Bath 12 years ago.

It was upon his arrival that he found another of his loves, Jiu-Jitsu.

“I started studying when I moved to Bath and fell in love with it straight away,” he continued.

“There is something about it that helps you focus and it also helps to give you confidence.

“I think that it has definitely helped me in my acting.”

He has a number of exciting projects coming up and had some wise words for budding actors.

“One of the things that I have learned from acting is to never take anything personally.

“The moment that you take it personally you are going to struggle in the industry I think.”

Antonio and his team at Gracie Barra team enjoyed a night out to watch the new movie, but he revealed he is even more excited for next year.

“I have a big supporting role in a film that is out next year called Behind the Line - Escape to Dunkirk,” Antonio said.

“It is going to be a big one and I hope that 2020 is going to be a big year for me.”
