It's nice to play a character that has a soulful, dependent, close relationship. It must mean my character is interesting in some way.
I now, more and more, appreciate when I'm in a group of good people and get to work in good movies and projects. I'm wildly grateful and appreciative.
Involve yourself every day. Work hard and figure out how to love acting all day, every day. It's getting into a made-up situation and making it good and making it real and just playing, just practicing and playing. Like the musicians that I played piano with: they never expect to be rich or famous, but they, for the sheer joy of it, play every day, all day.
I've been lucky. And thank goodness the (sci-fi films) I've done have been good movies. I feel like some kind of lucky star has, for now, shone on me.
It's a delight to trust somebody so completely.
My father, who raised me by himself, did a wonderful thing. He raised me very sweetly and dedicatedly and soulfully.
