It's incredibly fun to play someone that you don't like. It exorcises your own demons in a way. It's cathartic. We all have things that we don't like about ourselves, little things. And I get to amplify those things and put them out there. It's fun and it has a cleansing effect.
As an actor, you want to keep your demons to some extent, but you also have to exorcise them so you can use them instead of them using you.
You don't need to exorcise your personal demons onstage.
I write to understand my circumstances, to sort out the confusion of reality, to exorcise my demons. But most of all, I write because I love it!
