Actor Omar Chaparro Steps Up With One of the Most Iconic Pokémon in POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Actor Omar Chaparro was surprised to have gotten to be a part of “Pokémon Detective Pikachu,” a movie based in the universe of the global phenomenon Pokémon franchise.

Although Chaparro has loaned his voice to cartoon characters, appeared in movies internationally and has a singing career, stepping into the role of Sebastian the Charizard trainer was something different.

The role which directly affects the storyline had Chaparro speaking lines in English, which is not his preferred language.

When Chaparro was cast, he took two months learning his lines and getting the tone of the character to a place where he was comfortable, then on set the director decided to change things up.

Chaparro said English may not have been his primary language, but he was excited to change things up and work to bring his character out in the best ways.

POKEMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU
(L-R) Charizard and OMAR CHAPARRO as Sebastian in Legendary Pictures’ and Warner Bros. Pictures’ comedy adventure “POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Getting the opportunity to partner up with one of the largest and most iconic Pokémon in the series was fun for Chaparro, even if he was not aware of the fandom behind it.

Charizard has a major fight scene in the movie and Trainer Sebastian has some words to say before the fight begins.

Chaparro was able to use his imagination as he was working with a partner that wasn’t even there, but he said he felt confident that he was able to deliver a performance fans of the franchise could enjoy.

Coming off a record breaking movie, “No Manches Frida ,” Chaparro hopes to keep the success going with Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Pokémon Detective Pikachu.”

There are many times when you get rejected, Chaparro said, but you have to make the best of the projects you do get and put everything you got. After all, I am doing what I am passionate about.

Chaparro goes on to host a show in Mexico, continue producing projects and on to his next role.
