    • Amaury (on Prison Break): It's one of those shows that keeps you looking forward to next week. OK. Are they gonna get out? What's gonna happen? Or this or that, and basically that's how it works for me as well. I get so excited because I wanna know what happens to me next.

    • Amaury (on Prison Break): We're shooting right now in Joliet Prison. Uh, this is, uh, a prison from the eighteen hundreds. Very old. I believe there's ghosts here (laughs) because there's a weird energy and it's phenomenal. Its phenomenal in the way that it helps you get into character quick.

    • Amaury (on Fernando Sucre, his "Prison Break" character): What I love about him is that he has a human touch. He has a human touch... Hopefully your learn to love him. He's a bad guy but hopefully you learn to love him.

    • Amaury (on shooting Prison Break on a real prison): The minute you walk in you feel this energy and this cloud of all the spirits that are probably going by.

    • Amaury Nolasco: What's funny is that I'm from Puerto Rico, so when they told me, "Careful with that Texas heat," I said, "Pfft, how bad can it get?"
      It's cooling down now to the weather I'm used to — low '90s, upper '80s, but for the first few months it was 110, 115 [degrees]... I was like, "What the fuck?!"

    • Amaury (on Prison Break): I have always loved acting since I was a child.. and working here [Prison Break], I hope.. will open up more opportunities for me in the future.


    He is a very handsome guy, he acts very well, i mean, his look in his eyes when he sees Maricruz, you just believe that he loves her soooooooo sooooooo sooooooooo much.. He is a great actor, his body is like heaven for me and really, if i saw this guy walking down the streets, i think i would jump on him :o) lol

    i hope that he will make a lots of other movies, because he's a very great actor...

  • Great Actor

    Sucre is tight and is the one who helps Michael eventually helps Michael break out of Prison. He is in love with one girl and it's Maricruz which is the reason he break out in the first place. He finds out one of his friends is trying to steal her away so he must break out to save her from marrying Hector. Sucre eventually breaks out of Prison and gets to Maricruz and eventually things seem bad again, but I'm guessing he will get her back again. Sucre is a major character in Prison Break and is a very talented actor.moreless
