Ringo Starr on Acting in Candy, 1969

"In Candy, I tried very hard to be convincing as the Mexican gardener. I'd read the book and realized that Emmanuelle was a very nervous sort of fellow. I was nervous too, as it happens. And that was how I played the part. I personally was happy with the result. It was a very good film and will make a lot of money. But people couldn't seem to forget it was me. I would really like to convince people that I can play someone else. In the first two Beatles films, it wasn't really acting. We didn't know what we were doing. We just said the lines as they were. We had read them and then we would just go out and say them in front of the cameras."
