3/?? Favorite Actors → Tom Hardy
Whatever character you play, remember they are always doing something. They are not just talking. They are alive; going through a drama in which they will go through some sort of dramatic human experience. Keywords: Alive and Experience. It is your job to make them become so. Anything you do on stage or film has a direct relation to something you have experienced in one form or another in real life. Use your imagination to exaggerate or lessen that sensation. Then, disguise it in characterization and don’t forget to make lots and lots of mistakes, and look like a complete asshole. You’ll do fine.

“I worked with Tom on Tinker Tailor. I’m off to do a couple of days with him on The Wettest County and then we work together on Batman.
And then we get married. 2011 is the year of Gary and Tom.”
