Samuel: Every character in some particular way has small elements of who you are, only because you have to use your experience, so you have to tap into something that is personal to make certain things work. So there's no way that I actually can make my characters shorter than I am so that's always me and I can change my voice and I can change the temper of it but it's still my voice. The attitudes and the way that they treat other people tend to be very different from the way that I would normally treat people, or be the person that I am. I have a sort of quirky personality, in a way, and I'm kind of cynical as all my characters are. I'm kind of outspoken or there are moments when I need to emphasise something, but most times the way that a character approaches the particular life that's being displayed on screen has nothing to do with who I am.
