Do you find it surprising that you’re getting such terrific roles at this stage in your career?
It shouldn’t be unusual. I mean, what character that I have played in my life is more important than any other character? Are the young ones more important than the old ones? Are the fat ones more important than the thin ones? Are the dark-haired ones more important than the blonde ones? What are we talking about? These are people. These are lives.
