I'm not in a hurry to [leave characters behind]. I appreciate other actors that say ‘it was difficult to shed the skin of this character’. I don't know what the hurry is. As far as I'm concerned, I don't see that it ruins my life to have gotten involved with the character I'm playing. Our memories are finite and they decrease in their efficiency over time as we get older, so what's the hurry to forget something you learned something from and you explored in aninteresting way? I'm never in a hurry to shed it. I don't see it as a problem.

"A good actor is there, a bad actor is not. Sure it's a craft but it also has to do with generosity of spirit. Some people just aren't very generous by nature and, no matter how technically proficient they might be, they're not much fun to work with because they don't care and you feel it." - Viggo Mortensen
