In 1996, Antonio Banderas starred with pop icon Madonna in the musical drama Evita, in which Madonna starred in the role of Eva Péron and Banderas played Argentinian everyman Ché. While Madonna’s casting was controversial, Banderas had nothing but love reflecting back on his costar. “She was totally into this character. It was actually great working with her,” he tells Lola Ogunnaike, host of PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing.

The actor recalls a day filming at La Casa Rosada—the residence of the Argentinian President, akin to the White House, where Madonna showed her commitment to the film: “She got an idea with Alan Parker: we have 5,000 extras in the Plaza de Mayo where she has to give a speech—”Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina.” So she came dressed as Eva Duarte de Perón, shooting with no rehearsal, no nothing, and the extras’ reaction was extraordinary. All of the extras started crying, and the cameras were shooting, so we captured all of that. It was one of those magic moments I will never forget. ”
