I always felt that acting was an escape, like having the secret key to every door and permission to go into any realm and soak it up. I enjoy that free pass.
Most of the films that I've ever really responded to are ones that I feel were really involved in their times.
I never think that a film should answer questions for you. I think it should make you ask a lot of questions.
I have this embedded faith in the process through which films of a certain type get discovered on longer timelines.
At this point in my life I'm not bent on proving anything, really.

Fame is very corrosive and you have to guard very strictly against it.
It's a dream to be in a company of actors.
