“It’s always about, somehow, finding a part of myself that is relevant, and then turning the volume up on that particular part. So, I am all of the characters I’ve ever played, and I am none of them at the same time.” — Tom Hiddleston
No. I mean yes ! But it makes me… it keeps me sharp, it’s my great passion actually. And I think it’s the greatest challenge for an actor, and the greatest reward because what you have to do is you have to… learn the words and adjust them and absorb them so you know them inside-out and because the words are so wise, I always feel like I’m more opened, I’m a more compassionate person for the doing of it. It’s sort of like… I just feel a bit more alive when I’m doing Shakespeare. It’s hard to put your finger on it but it’s very, very fulfilling.
