The way I become friends with somebody is a slow process. You can’t just spill your guts and tell them everything about yourself and expect them to listen and understand you because you don’t know them. It’s the same thing with a relationship.
“I think Rupert could be a really wonderful, straight actor. You can always think of him as a comedian and I sometimes watch Rupert when he’s off camera and he’s just off to the side between takes, because he’s the quietest member of the cast and crew. There’s a real poetry about Rupert as a human being, as an actor. I think he could be really, really good. But it’s interesting, the audience is so programmed to just find him funny all the time. He’s a funny guy, isn’t he, so it’s great for him to do some serious stuff.” David Yates [x]
