Even though you don’t do a lot of acting nowadays, how do think filming has changed since the ’80s?
That’s a really good question. I’m mostly retired and the things I miss the most about working I’m sure are very much the same – I miss call sheets, because it’s always good to know exactly what’s required of you, and I miss the crew because film crews are just a wild assortment of fabulous characters.
So I think the best things about it are the same as they’ve ever been. For me, I would be happy playing fantasy characters forever, so I love technical filmmaking, I love greenscreen, I love acting to a piece of tape on the wall… I suppose
wasn’t really that kind of film, but I would only enjoy it more and more – the more technical films get, the more I’d enjoy it.
