I search for one thing I can connect with on a very private, deep stage. With this character, it actually was: what’s that factor that permits folks to observe the worst folks on the planet with the worst impulses on the planet? How do folks observe these folks? And what’s that second after they notice, holy shit, I’m gonna go proper off this cliff with this individual as a result of that’s like, after all, all of the villains and all the films however it’s additionally like an actual factor has occurred all through historical past, and it’s occurring in entrance of us as of late. It’s actually on the forefront of my thoughts. How can folks observe folks with the worst intentions? What’s that? And my character is nothing if not a zealot and a believer and what’s that second when the blindfold’s ripped off and you actually see the lunacy.

In order that was in contrast to something I had skilled. It was a delight.
