Marlon Brando. The finest actor who ever lived. He was my idol when I was 13. He's done enough work to last two lifetimes. Everything I do, I think: Can Brando play this with me?
Every actor is somewhat mad, or else he'd be a plumber or a bookkeeper or a salesman.
A screen actor is compensated in the knowledge that millions will see his performance at one time, where only hundreds will see it on the stage.
I enjoy my work. I haven't been an actor for 30 years without getting pleasure out of the profession.
The actor depends wholly on himself. He gives his performance in what, to him, seems the most effective manner.
