You say something, things you would rather forget, and then they are out there. It makes me anxious and I don’t know why people are interested in me anyway. If I had my way, I would rather exist in a little hole and not speak to anyone.
Comedy was why I got into acting the first place. Peter Sellers was a huge influence on my wanting to act. I grew up with him and found him hysterical. The Pink Panther films were an inspiration, from my earliest childhood days, when I was watching them with my brother and my dad.

When an audience is affected in a way that I’ve seen with some people, it’s so inspiring to me an actor. You know that you’re on the right track and you’re doing work that can affect people. When that goes hand-in-hand with important issues that we’re still living with, and we will be for a long time, sadly, it’s so confirming of everything.
What works for me is knowing the character in an emotional sense. I wish I was more logical but it doesn’t work for me like that. I need quite a lot of time; it’s why I always worry when I’m doing more than one thing at a time. I hope that some sort of magic will kick in.
People are funny, and in the most tragic situations, when comedy erupts from nowhere, it can turn on its head within the space of a second or a minute. You’re laughing one minute and you’re crying the next and that’s just life for me, and that is what people are like.
