Those are my favorite things to do as an actor, when you get to disappear. A lot of my favorite actors, that’s what they do: Whether its Daniel Day Lewis, Meryl Streep or Gary Oldman…you don’t see the actor on the screen. You see the character in the story. To me, that’s the most inspiring thing about acting. It goes to show that our identities are something we create.
