My favorite thing as an actor is to become somebody else. That’s the fun part is to transform. My favorite performances in films tend to be the ones where you don’t see the actors on the screen, you see the characters in the story, you know? People like Daniel Day Lewis or Gary Oldman or Meryl Streep or Peter Sellars. These are people you don’t… you don’t see that actor, they just disappear and that’s what I always strive for.
