Another look at how Colin prepares himself to inhabit a character and make it real.
This comment by Colin gives us a further glimpse into the kind of work and thought he puts into understanding any role, rounding out the person and making them whole, beyond the script. Writing pages and pages, building the picture in his mind of who this person is, where he came from, the influences that brought him to the point where the filmed story begins. Colin has said many times, “you have to do the work” … a committed and dedicated artist, not only to Cathal, but to every role.
(Thanks to Georgina Dawe, first for her creative artwork … then for finding this portion of an interview by Colin … comments we had not previously seen.)
