I used to spend a lot of time alone as a kid, creating characters and doing voices in my room, and I thought to myself, I'm either going to go absolutely nuts, or I'm going to find something to put that energy into.
I'm drawn to projects where I play these really complicated characters, but also where I can have some type of influence on affecting what we see as societal norms.
I have to extend my admiration and respect for Sam Esmail, who is a visionary with what he's done with 'Mr. Robot,' and this brilliant resurgence of Christian Slater only helped us get where we are today - very talented individual.
I never thought that I could possibly play Freddie Mercury until I realized his name was Farrokh Bulsara, and that was the most powerful message that was sent to me from the beginning.
