With my character Proctor in “The Crucible”, [what I had to take the character through] was huge, like climbing a mountain. It was an extremely detailed and emotionally destabilizing role; it was a three-and-a-half-hour play, sometimes twice a day. I’d ask myself, “Can I do this to myself (or rather John Proctor) again?”. I shed so many tears during those 12 weeks, I sometimes felt like I had nothing left. (x) (x)
