You’ve probably seen him bur you might not know it. The Spanish actor Javier Botet has appeared in SLENDER MAN, which is available today on digital, Mama (2013), The Conjuring 2 (2016), Alien: Covenant (2017), It (2017), The Mummy (2017), just to name a few of them. His long, lean physique, Javier is 6-feet-6 and weighs 120 pounds, is perfect for his roles that are essentially monsters, aliens and creepy characters.
Javier Botet was born with Marfan Syndrome, a genetic disorder that contributes to his physique and makes him double-jointed and he’s able to craft some weird movements.
I had the opportunity to speak to him over the phone and we spoke about his character in Slender Man, his favorite character so far, being in this business and more. Listen to the audio below:
