Michael Sheen Topics
There is nothing quite like a drama-school football match because every single guy wants to prove that he's not a poof, so they are the most violent games you've ever seen.
It's weird meeting people for the first time and realizing they know more about your private life than you know about them. You'll be sitting in a pub chatting to a stranger and half way through they mention something about your daughter living in America. What?
Wherever you come from, you carry the place with you.
There are musicals I've enjoyed watching, but there aren't many parts in them that appeal to me. I'm a pretty good singer, though. Maybe someone needs to write a slightly more interesting musical. Probably the one thing I'd like to do is Frank 'N' Furter in The Rocky Horror Show, because I think that would be theatrically exciting to do.
Well you have to do a tremendous amount of research and if you're playing someone who's a real life person, especially someone who's alive or recently alive. The audience is going to be very familiar with them, so you do have to meet the audience's demand for familiarity with the character. Because I've been playing a lot of real-life characters, that's something I've got more and more used to. It seems to have worked out okay!
I've lived off and on in America for the past seven years. And while I enjoy spending time there, Wales and Britain is my home. Just culturally, that's the thing I've missed most while in America; the people I meet don't share the same cultural references.
There is an element of performance to leadership, because youre on public display, and I suppose I must be attracted to that. Although, probably more than the leadership, Im more attracted to characters who are quite extreme, and could be considered borderline monsters. Its something you can get your teeth into, and I find the psychology fascinating. Its interesting that in searching for monsters to play, you often end up playing leaders.
As an actor I think youre always going to ride a fine line between doing something because you believe its the right thing to do, and guessing what the public wants to see. For politicians it must be the same, if not more so. You have to be quite vigilant with yourself and question why youre doing certain things as well as whats behind all that. Because otherwise, you can find yourself having made choices for the wrong reasons. And suddenly youre a completely different person than the one you thought you were a year earlier.
Ive never met anyone normal. Normal people, people who arent actors, are the most bizarre people you can ever come across. Ill talk to someone and come away thinking, they are clinically insane. The only way I can put that into what I do is by playing very extreme characters.
It was a good place to grow up.I always loved it even though everyone else hated it and said, I cant wait to get out. I suppose I always assumed that I would leave anyway so I never had a problem with it.
Its interesting that in searching for monsters to play you often end up playing leaders.
