I get to be such diverse characters, learn about them, live their lives and become them.”

I wouldn’t have chosen to do these films if they were any different. I’m really excited about my next set of films because they have given me super exciting and memorable characters too portray. I’m in a great phase of my career and I want to keep doing my best with every single film that I do.”
