I remember being on a black-and-white set all day and then going out into daylight and being amazed by the colour.
People get nervous accessorising, but there is nothing wrong with adding a belt or a pair of shoes in another colour.
Could people be trained to be less gullible? Or are you as stuck with gullibility as you are with skin colour?
I dyed my hair about 42 different colours, and kids can be pretty judgmental about people who are different. But instead of breaking down and conforming, I stood firm. That is also probably why I was unhappy.
At heart I've always been a music fan. That part of me has never changed since I was a little kid, sitting in a room watching a record go round, looking at the colour of the labels.
The true worth of a man is not to be found in man himself, but in the colours and textures that come alive in others.
They said they wanted a lot of feathers, glitter, colourful colours. A costume. So I had a lady here in Calgary make it. She just kind of put together what I had in mind.

Nothing can happen nowhere. The locale of the happening always colours the happening, and often, to a degree, shapes it.
Ask yourself why a red carpet is red. It could be any colour.
Even if you don't like colours, you will end up having something red. For everyone who doesn't like colour, red is a symbol of a lot of culture. It has a different signification but never a bad one.
Maybe this whole obsession about colouring our hair is about our inability to grow up. To let go of the fact we aren't children any more, and the whole thing about changing our faces and looking young, and 60 being the new 40, is maybe we don't want to let go of our childhood.
I would love to work in a Bollywood film as there is so much drama and colour in the films there.
