My favourite scary movie was always 'Halloween.' I love that there's hidden emotion underneath Michael Myers' psychotic behaviour. Plus, he has the best mask, hands-down.
It's just so much more fun to play bad than good. Plus it's just good to get that out of your system so it doesn't show up in your personal life.
My mentor Jon Simmons introduced me to the Stanislavski system, which is so heavy on back-story. So you write and write and write these back stories about a character and then you throw it away. So then on set, if it doesn't come, then you didn't do your work.
The difference between a regular camera and a 3D camera, for an actor, is really no different except that the turn-arounds are longer. It takes a lot longer to set up a shot because the cinematographer is really trying to set up a whole world, so it can't be more intricate and more beautiful to the viewers, in 3D.
