1 I love it and it is a blessing to be able to have seventy-five to eighty episodes to develop a character and find your voice. You have a similar through voice, and yet you are making different decisions, and so you act differently and you make different choices, as that is what your character would do.
2 There's not too many things I'm afraid of, but I'm not too brave when it comes to sitting in a chair getting my teeth drilled.
3 As an actor, I've always found that my job is not to judge the content in which I've agreed to perform in. What I try to do is just find the truth in every moment that they've written.
4 I saw the original that Gela Babluani wrote and directed called '13 Tzameti,' and that was very interesting. I believe it was a French film, and I was just intrigued by the awkwardness; the off-beatness of the film really just grasped me.
5 To get into another person's mindset and what they are trying to do with their project is a challenge, and it is what I like.
6 Art has to be reflective of our society.
7 Part of an actor's job, in my opinion, is adjust to the characteristics of the director and try to understand to how he tries to work.
8 Working on 'Dexter' is like shooting one big movie every year.
9 You just see a good project and want to be involved in it, and that's what 'Dexter' was.]
10 People are complicated. People have secrets. It doesn't make them good people or bad people.
