The marvels of daily life are exciting; no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street.
What led me to be an actor is that I have a strange something in me that can drastically change the way I appear to the world. Growing up, I couldn’t understand why people would always have different ideas of me – but because of that I became aware of how you can manipulate your own ability to change. And then I learned to make a career of it.
I’ve had experiences where I wasn’t allowed to change words around at all because you have to say everything, exactly as written on the page. That’s not fun for me. For me, part of being an actor is being able to contribute to a character’s rhythms. If there’s room to explore, you find a happy medium.
