Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Mar 29, 2022

NEW! SaSa and I are back with a new talk.

I've been telling you to watch Gomorrah for years. It's one of the best TV series ever - suspenseful, smart, sophisticated. But in the US, it's been hard to find. Now it's back - thank you, HBO Max! - and I get to sit down with the lead actor, Salvatore Esposito.

Salvatore isn't just the lead in Gomorrah (he plays Gennaro, aka Genny, Savastano). He's also a highlight of this season of Fargo (another great show), playing Gaetano Fadda, who you won't easily forget.

So! My talks with Salvatore go down in the books, for me, as some of my favorites. They're fun. And real.

And they're in English! You'd never guess from seeing him on Gomorrah that he speaks this beautifully. 

We talk:

  • Gomorrah
  • Season 5 finale
  • Ciro de Marzio
  • family
  • love
  • relationships
  • life lessons
  • struggles
  • Naples, Rome, New York, Los Angeles, Texas, New Orleans
  • learning English
  • learning Italian
  • words like mozzarella and grazie
  • tourist traps
  • HBO Max
  • being a good person
