#Quote
1I love getting into the research for the characters that I play. You do all that research and then you just give yourself to it and let go and allow it to take you where it wants to go.
2I learned very early on just how important it is to work with good people. It's important to have a good prop department, and a good director of photography. A lot of people don't understand just how collaborative filmmaking is. Actors often get credit for making a film great, but filmmaking is a total collaboration and everyone should get the credit.
3When you arrive to a set and you see the sky all lit up and the sets all lit up, for me it is very exhilarating and it's a lot of fun. It's really fun to see that and to be a part of it. It's just like going to the circus.
4I am a stickler for always having to know what time it is.
5I am cursed with the inability to sleep on planes - ever.
6Music can get me through anything.
7I will say this: the first film that I was on was 'In the Heat of the Night', that Norman Jewison directed with Sidney Poitier. I'm on the set, and I'm totally taking it for granted. Everyone is working for everyone else and pulling for the very best, and it makes everyone better because you feel that effort and concern and appreciation.
8I'm not a great hunter. But I have fired guns in the past, when I was growing up. But it was part of growing up where I lived. You go out hunting or target practice. They also taught you to respect guns.
