|1||Acting is a lot of fun, it’s like Halloween every day. You get a costume, a new face, a new identity, but at the same time you have to be yourself. If you put on a fake personality, there’s no way you can keep that personality and also play the role you’re supposed to play. You must be comfortable with yourself.|
