1From an egotistical point-of-view, I'm always interested in roles that push me as a person. I'm interested in humans as animals and as products of society. I'm interested in pursuing roles that allow me to push against my own walls, my own constraints as a human being and to find out where I'm capable of going. In real life, I'm not very good at feeling emotions, so I like to do it through my work. I'm interested in doing things that challenges me.
