Personal Quotes I don't think I'm even close to fulfilling my potential. And I think also that, unlike a pianist or a flutist, an actor has an instrument that is constantly changing. I try not to let my politics limit me artistically, and you know say like "well I can't do that because I don't ever want to play a black prostitute" or "I can't do that because I don't ever want to play,you know a drug addict". I really try not to do that.What's important to me is to make sure my characters ring true that they reflect a trueness to society because if I can bring out the true humanity of a character than I'm not perpetuating a stereotype I'm actually revealing a truth. It's in the same way that I don't read my reviews. I try not to get involved in all that stuff because what's important to me is the work and however the work lives in the world is out of my control.
