“Richard” /Do you remember that conversation we had at that party? I never knew you wanted to be an actor. I don’t know why it surprised me.
/When did you know that was what you wanted?
“Um. It was after watching avatar. The James Cameron one. It was like the first big CGI film I remember seeing, and it was so beautiful that I knew I wanted to be a part of the creative process.”
/Have you got a really active imagination then?
"That’s an understatement.”
/What do you think about?
“Well my imagination really comes into play when I dream, and I started a dream journal to really get down the more abstract and strange ones.”
“Well I once wrote down one about a chimpanzee apocalypse. In it my younger brother and I were running from them but we weren’t on good terms. People were turning into chimpanzees, and we were among the 10% of humans left. In the dream my brother and his friend want to turn into chimps because they believe it’s futile, so the do and the transformation is slow. It’s really emotional, because I ask my brother whether he will be able to speak, and he says that he’ll forget everything up to the moment before we reconcile. So we hug and cry until I feel him pushing away.
/ Sounds like a film plot. Did you have that dream after watching planet of the apes? "No, actually it was definitely influenced by the play Rhinoceros. Its an absurdist play where people just randomly start turning into rhinoceros.”
/Are you going to start writing your own scripts? I was given that advice once, that the best way to find the roles you want is to write them yourself.
