 - I put myself in a situation where I didn’t prepare at all and I jump to film not preparing everything and not even learning the lines. I love working and I love exploring what to play and what the film is giving to me and also because I like as an actor to have an arch of the film or the arch of the play to understand where is the point of crisis, where it’s growing, how it’s growing. So I am aware of what's going on. Some directors don’t like it. They like to have actors being their tool and not to be conscious of what’s going on.
