Actor, director, screenwriter & producer , Italy

Citation

“The actor is an intelligent and crazy horse. You have to be intelligent, to put yourself at the disposal of the director, but also to betray them at times, without them noticing. Actors hide behind their characters, directors behind the camera: each has his Trojan horse. Acting means giving your opinion on things. But then again, so does not acting: alongside the CV which mentions what we’ve done, we should put the one which mentions what we haven’t done…”
