Q. Do you plan to do any more big Hollywood movies like Harry Potter was?

Q. How do you modify your acting from on the stage to behind the camera?
|A. Still working on it. On the most basic level stage acting involves being larger than life in terms of your voice movement (facial expressions, etc.), whereas with a camera in your face everything has to get toned down. However this is an overly simple way of describing it. It is not even like I have mastered it yet.|
