Personal Quotes (2)

The nice thing about being an actor is that you use your own feelings. You need to be able to open up, but you must also be able to let go again. It's all about finding the balance.
Mourning seems to be a bigger taboo than death. We can talk about death. It's concrete. But what comes after that? If someone is in mourning for a month, we think it's fine. After three months it's considered a little so-so, and after three years it's "You really have to stop this now!" Do you see what I mean? The biggest taboo is really the mourning. But people can be in mourning for years. Queen Victoria mourned the rest of her life after losing her husband.
