The June 20 2019
Hi Jeff first, I'm very happy to do this interview about you.
Thanks for asking me.
What did you like about the storyline and your role in Greta ?
Well, to be completely honest, I am just a working actor, so what I loved most was that they wanted me for the part.
I loved that this was a thriller. I am a comedian so this was a brand new genre
to work in and I found that very exciting.
How was the filming with Isabelle Huppert and with the Director Neil Jordan.?
I have always loved Ms. Huppert, especially her performances in "Elle" and "The Piano Teacher".
I found her to be an amazing professional and especially capable at walking in
4 inch Gucci heels.
I have also been a fan of Mr. Jordan for so long, so it was a thrill to work in a movie directed by him. I remember being a kid and hearing about the big surprise at the end of "The Crying Game" and wanting so desperately to know what it was.
Did you know before this movie your co-stars?
I did not. The movie was shot in Dublin, Ireland, but took place in New York City. Many of the actors were Americans who lived in the UK.
I was one of the few actors based in the US that was brought over to do the film. I rarely get to shoot on location, so it was a thrill.
loved seeing how they turned beautiful Dublin into dirty New York.
When and why did you choose to be an actor ?
I've wanted to be an actor since I was 4 years old and saw Steven Spielberg's "ET" on a VHS tape. After college, I worked for a bit in a different field, but
I missed performing so much that I took some improv classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York. After I had some success,
I decided to try to do it full time, and I have been doing that for about 12 years now. I work in film, but also on American television, commercials,
and in the theatre.
What is your next challenge?
I will be reprising my role in "Bright Colors and Bold Patterns" by Drew Droege.
I did the show Off-Broadway, and will be doing the regional premiere at The Studio Theatre in Washington, DC.
Do you wish to add something?
I don't think so! Thanks for interviewing working actors in addition to stars.
Thank you very much for your interview Jeff and I wish you the best.
You too Jean-Paul.
