[Studying law] was awful. It’s one thing speaking fluent German, and another thing understanding the German constitution, which I hadn’t grown up with, or legalese in German. It was incredibly, fiendishly complicated. And I just wasn’t in the mood to learn that. What I was in love with was the idea of being a lawyer – the briefcase, the BMW, the raincoat, the standing up in court proving somebody’s innocence. Which essentially was sort of acting.
