“I try not to mix professional stuff with private stuff. I never go home in character. I don’t want people, who are close to me, to suffer from it. It’s another thing that my work lasts for whole 24 hours, without stopping. You think about your role, repeat lines to yourself, play scenes in your mind, and exist in a continuous inner dialogue. It’s almost uncontrollable.”
When I told people I wanted to be an actor, they were like, “You should probably do something in like, math or biology or English, you should get like, a normal person’s job.” That’s just not who I am. I’m really not that guy.
