    • James: (When asked if he prefers film or stage) It's sort of ridiculous to compare the two because they're so different. But I do prefer film. Film is about the spontaneous and natural moment. It should be the same in theater but it's not. Also, and I know this is opposite to what many people say, I think film is the actor's medium and theater is the director's. On stage, the director chooses what play is done and then determines the style and tone of the performance - it's all about the director's vision. With film, that's not so much the case and they never tell you to be anything but natural. In theatre, the term 'natural' is used in a disparaging fashion. I like to come back to the theater, though, because of the writing.
