I read that your parents didn’t want you to be an actor?
No, because they just saw the pitfalls of it every day, and you don’t know where your next job is coming from and it’s unstable, into which they were having a child, me, and you want stability for your children. You want something better and everything that was bad about it for them, they wanted me to be free of for me, but I just kept on doing it, kept on doing it, at school and University and eventually my dad said, I said this before when I played Ricky Roma in Glengarry Glen Ross, but actually, it was Salieri in Amadeus, and he said in a car park afterwards, we were saying goodbye and he said, “You are better than I was or ever will be, you will have a really good time doing this for a living.” And I cried and from that moment. I thought, “Okay, if I’ve got his blessing, then I’m going to do it.”
