Quizá nunca pueda dignarme a llamarme actriz, pero al menos me gustaría registrar mis intentos actorales.
"Give me a scene to read, I’ll act, I’ll perform, but I can’t just talk…"
Diana Morales, A Chorus Line
I never wanted to be boxed in by a type of character that I’d always play. I find that I would get, I just wouldn’t find it very interesting, I don’t think anyone else would. Part of the reason I’m an actor is I’m interested in different shades of the truth in different parts of life and how quite often in the human race, you’re bound together by a certain unity in things. And acting and whatever you’re in, is about excavating the things that make us all the same: birth, death, love, grief, loss, loneliness, gratitude, generosity, humor, solitude, and all of those things exist in every story in any time, in any place.
The idea is you learn to use everything that happened in your life and you learn to use it in creating the character you’re working on. You learn to dig into your unconscious and make use of every experience you ever had.
