For me, I never, never, from the moment I started acting, had a desire to be famous.
I like being the lead but I like being in an ensemble. There are different challenges and dilemmas with both. If you're carrying a film, there's a certain weight, but there are a lot of scenes to explore the character. When you're in an ensemble, you have to convey the entire character in a limited number of scenes.
I always had challenges when I was younger, because I looked so young but sounded older.
My tendency as an actor is, when there's a certain energy, I feel a challenge to match it, to come up to that plate and play on the same level.
One of the things I really love about TV is this symbiotic relationship you can get between the writers and the actors, and the characters start to come to life because you start to collaborate.
I'm a sensualist. My two main indulgences are dark chocolate and massages.
I think you always have to go as an artist with instinct, I really do.
