What does Macbeth want? What does Shakespeare want? What does Othello want? What does James want? What does Arthur Miller want when he wrote? Those things you incorporate and create in the character, and then you step back and you create it. It always must begin with the point of truth within yourself.

I just think that Stephen Miller is completely tone deaf when it comes to reforming our immigration system.

My style idols are people like Kate Hudson, the Olsen twins and of course Sienna Miller and Kate Moss- even Bridget Bardot.
When I was on stage in the ’50s, it was a glory time, a golden time with Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller. There was real talent. And now, the theater is a little Disney-fied.
I love the theatre and Miller is one of my all-time favourite playwrights. ‘All My Sons’ is a very socialist play, which exposes the lack of empathy that can accompany capitalism when it is left unchecked.
