“Acting, to me, has been many things: It’s a business, and it’s a craft, and it’s a political act – it’s whatever adjective is most applicable.”
- Acting is a business and a political act and a craft, but I also feel like it’s a service – specifically, for a military audience.
- Acting is really about having the courage to fail in front of people.
- Acting, believe it or not, can get very self-involved! I feel fortunate to have been able to work on things with people who have a very specific point of view and perspective, and who feel like they’re doing something very active.
- Acting, to me, has been many things: It’s a business, and it’s a craft, and it’s a political act – it’s whatever adjective is most applicable.
- Any actor is happy to be involved with something that’s challenging, controversial, and not easily palatable. Things that are too dumbed down or easy to swallow are uninteresting… It’s good when people have such a polarizing response.
- At Juilliard, suddenly I was reading these great plays that could articulate the ways I was feeling in the Marine Corps, and that felt very therapeutic, by putting words to feelings, in a big way.
- By the time I got into Juilliard, I was working at a Target distribution warehouse. It didn’t make anything, it just shipped things, and my job was just to stand there and look at the security codes on the back of trucks and see if they would lock, and check them in.
