Personal Quote:

The joy of doing a play as an actor is that you've got that interaction with the audience and you're also your own editor. If I want to make a pause three quarters of an hour long, I can, whereas on television and film you've got an editor and if you feel there's a rhythm to a line and you want to say it that way, there's no guarantee it'll stay that way.
