As an actor, a part of you expects to be looked at. A part of you wants to be looked at. But when I'm playing a part, in my imagined world, I feel I'm not me. I may be using bits of me, but I love the sense that I'm being someone else.
Actors use who they are to be someone else, but I would hate to ever think I'm playing myself. It's imagining being someone else that is the key motivating thing for me. So when people want to know about me, it makes me a bit unnerved.
Being an actor means asking people to look at you. I guess I accept that. But it's a profession in which the job is to show another world and other people. You may access it through bits of yourself, and your imagination and experience, but actually in the end, you're not playing yourself.
Within the process of filming, unexpected situations occur.
The film depends on the audience's belief in this relationship.
I like to keep fit, but I never lift very heavy weights.
I have grown up loving Shakespeare.
The sets were fantastic. The Harry Potter sets are brilliant. You do get transported for a second.
