The good thing about acting is that it always keeps you on your toes... It's not like any other job where you can go in and do the same thing as yesterday.
People accuse me of being Methody, but I'm not at all. The one thing I don't want people to see is me. I don't want them to be able to recognize my faults and failures and qualities, and I won't use those things to spark off emotions or to illustrate.
