When you are a character actor they trust you will go in and give them a full character and leave.
When I was younger I used to pick things just to face the fear.
The search for the truth is not for the faint hearted.
It’s like why people read scary books or go see scary movies. Because it creates a distance. They’re scared but they’re not going to get hurt.
I found my niche as a character actor and I’ve never felt like a movie star or teen idol and never wanted to.
Acting is not a mystery. There’s nothing that I know that other actors don’t know. We all act we’re all actors we all know the same thing. The only thing that separates us is experience.
At our best it’s a good experience but we do 22 episodes a year so there are some clunkers.
