Dwayne Johnson connects with 'San Andreas' character on many levels.
Dwayne Johnson opens up about how events in his personal life helped him connect to the problems of single father rescue pilot Ray Gaines in his new earthquake thriller 'San Andreas'; his second movie with director Brad Peyton which hits the UK today.
Dwayne Johnson says 'San Andreas' role was 'meant to be'
The movie sees a first responder helicopter pilot on a journey to rescue his estranged daughter following a devastating earthquake along the San Andreas fault in California. And while Dwayne Johnson might never have been stuck in a natural disaster of this scale himself, he certainly knows what it's like to experience the deeper issues that Ray Gaines is going through.

In the story of Man vs Nature, audiences are used to seeing the 'everyman' facing off against the greatest of natural disasters. But what if your 'everyman' is nicknamed 'The Rock'?
For as long as they have existed, the disaster movie genre has had a strong emphasis on natural disasters brought on by, at first, the abuse of science, and now, mankind's abuse of the planet. This is not always the case, as films like Roland Emmerich's '2012' can sometimes use the disaster movie genre as a way to use the glorious visuals of the literal end of the world as a way to tell an exciting adventure story.
Sure, he's cool - but can you imagine this man unable to just heroically save the day with ease?
But for people living in California, with the constant threat of the San Andreas Fault looming in the background, a movie about natural disasters can be a terrifying glimpse of possible reality. So, what brilliant actor is set to convey the heart-felt emotions of 2015's 'San Andreas'? DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON; perhaps an unlikley choice...
California is well-known for playing host to regular earthquakes, being located right on top of the San Andreas fault; in other words, the tectonic plate boundary that separates the Pacific and the North American Plates. However, rarely have earthquakes been seen that have reduced whole cites to rubble, caused huge chasms in the Earth and deadly tidal waves through streets killing thousands of people. The only option for residents is to get as far away as possible, though with such a huge disaster ripping through the state, this one is still going to have an effect on the other side of the country. Meanwhile, chopper pilot Ray and his estranged wife are desperate to find their missing daughter Blake first, and use a Fire Department rescue helicopter to search high and low throughout the state.
