“The Character doesn’t know it’s Unreal”

Some interesting remarks from Colin about his relationship with the characters he inhabits.

The character doesn’t know it’s an unreal situation.  You have to find that truth for them, and live in that world.  (Making the unreal real.)  Yeah, for them, for the character, I think.

Always it’s the script, always it’s the characters.  It’s a guttural instinct sometimes when you read something, there’s an unspoken sort of calling, I think, that comes from the character.

And they’ve got to intimidate you.  They’ve got to make you a bit scared, yourself, to do it.  Because, I think that’s the driving force behind things, the challenge behind it.
