Sometimes you’ve got to lay low and learn from each character. I once played the role of a palace guard in a movie, but I didn’t see myself as a palace guard; I saw it as an opportunity to learn as every role has a lesson attached to it. So, what I simply do is take every challenge as an avenue for learning”.
