People's character is their behaviour - we're all capable of good and evil.
I overthink everything. I'm very keen there should be a positive outcome. I like to control outcomes. But you can't. That's what is nice about being an actor, that you work really hard and it pays off. But at the end of the day, for it to be any good, you have to let go. I'd like to be better at this in life.
It's what all actors try to do, really, to just preserve the child inside them because their imagination is quite available. I think partly it's because they're still making sense of the world. They haven't boxed everything up so neatly as most adults have. And the thing is adults haven't solved the world - they've just found a coping mechanism.
Kids are no fools: they're very sophisticated, they don't miss a lot; they don't miss nuance.
The most amazing thing you can ask for as an actor from a director is that you're being seen, that the choices made are informed.
