It's just lovely to be involved in a movie that does go back to the basics - characters and great writing.
There's something to play if there's conflict going on. Whatever that conflict is, that's where drama is; if the character is grappling with something you've got something to play, there's layers to it.
I don't think you necessarily identify and believe in the motifs of the character, but you have to want to play it and want to commit to the lines.
I like to play characters that are convincing, that aren't just straightforward and nice.
The idea of goodies and baddies has always fascinated me, and what people consider to be a goodie or a baddie, because I've never seen any of my characters as baddies.
I do a lot better if I sit around and think about a character for a couple of months.
I treat any scene the same - dialogue, action - you're still creating something in character. It's all acting, fighting.
One of the things I love, more than anything, is jumping around and playing lots of different parts. I love the variety of playing different characters.
No matter who the character is and how big their role, that each person in the story is a human being and deserves respect. Even if they're in the story for ten seconds, I didn't want you to just see them as this entity passing through that's serving all of the other people.
