Personal Quote:

I make a character out of those things that allow him to tell the story. I'm not an actor who will say, "Well, my character would never do that." If the story requires it, then I'll find a way of accommodating that in character. For me, it's not about performance. It's about storytelling. Once I get a clear idea of what I want to accomplish, then acting is just dressing up and playing. See more »
