Harry Potter, Sola, Gary Oldman discussed on Happy Sad Confused
Approach what you do while i always i. I always had this instinct. That i could do it. You know i. I felt this thing in me that i felt like i could transform myself and i you know i remember looking at myself in the mirror when i was little or you know. Just these weird looking back on these moments. Where if i was crying. And i was upset i would kind of analyze it and be like what is this you know. Goes you know looking at yourself in the mirror crying And just and really really interested in human emotion really interested in people really interested in nuances of people. The way they move their head the way they move their hands like little things. I still am. I'm obsessed with it like i. just you know. So that was. That was where my love for acting came. I think i was obsessed with people and obsessed with. I still am like. I film everything i feel. Everybody i find. I'm in love with like human beings you know and so i think that's just evolved as i've gotten and You know i. I yeah it does strike me that like four an actor like in your age bracket and especially for female actors. Not a lot of them are like you in that like you seem to go after really transformative performances It's is it do resit. Does that resonate when you get a script and you see like oh. This is an opportunity to really kind of like push myself in a in a different way. Absolutely and i really love Doing things that are are challenging. I love completely transforming myself. I i the combination of the challenge and then being able to just feel like a different person is the most fun for me know i. I love that challenge. I love you know and making it authentic not making it silly not making it you know a character a caricature of somebody. You know So that combination. I love and that's what i loved about. Sola is i think they'd like i always loved characters you know i loved fantasy growing up like that like that was something i like the the you know i i mean. I think we're gonna talk about this but like fantasy and and and saifi that those were the things that i actually like loved watching people playing these weird bizarre creatures and the way that human being could totally transform into like a witch or you know what i mean like harry potter. Was everything to me like. That was like you know if i could have had the career my dream career. I would have been in like all the harry. Potter's you know like i. I love and the actual performance. And i love and i also love nuanced performance. I love trying to combine. the two is like ultimate. we are speaking my language. I mean like. I feel like for instance like gary oldman dracula is like my favorite performance.
