Theater will always be my first love. The time and dedication that goes into the rehearsal process with the cast and crew is something that TV/Movie acting does not offer.
The mug is a tool. My ace in the hole. To have looks is the bonus on top of what motivates me to be an actor. Not to realize they’re an asset would be counterproductive to the cause; they serve the common good.
The most interesting thing about acting is when you go to the dark places, that’s a lot of energy. When you go to the happiest places, it’s also a lot of energy.
What I’ve noticed is that when people win huge and they have those huge, huge successes, sometimes they forget about the actual acting of it, and sometimes it’s hard to come down from their perch.
You once liked the blissful mobility, but then you wonder, who’s the real you? And who’s the chap on the screen? You know, I catch myself acting out my life like a goddamn script.
Acting is standing up naked and turning around very slowly.
People often argue about this. Obviously one of the skills in performance is acting, and you can’t expect every Romeo to really be in love with their Juliet!
I think I’m a better director than I ever was an actor. I’d love to go back to acting, but nobody seems to want me.
Acting is what I love to do.I understand the differences between the different formats. But I enjoy whether it be film, TV or in the theater.
Beauty is nature’s way of acting at a distance.
The biggest thing when you’re playing live is that you’re sitting across from the player and can get a detailed impression of how they’re acting, and whether they’re expressing strength or weakness. Online, it’s much more about betting patterns and you’re using a much narrower range of cues to what they’re holding and thinking.
I love to act, I’ve always wanted to be an actor. I think that acting and fiction go nicely together – being able to visualize language as something you perform, not just something that’s there on the page.
I honestly don’t even know how I got into acting. It happened so quickly because my mom and sister used to do commercials, and apparently when I was little I would unbuckle myself from the stroller and crash their auditions.
The best heroes in the world are the reluctant ones. Courage isn’t fearlessness – it’s acting in the face of fear.
