Personal Quote:

There is no difference in preparing for Robbie Rotten or any classical serious role.... Every part you prepare for you have to be honest and truthful and wholly believe that the character exists - otherwise no one will accept your acting. Kids are a demanding audience and they KNOW when something is untruthful. See more »
