William Mapother

I love classical music and often listen to symphonies or opera in the morning.More William Mapother [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I can be a bit of a science geek. I tend more towards reading about brain science, neuroscience.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I love classical music and often listen to symphonies or opera in the morning.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I love sci-fi, especially when it thrives on a thought-provoking story, rather than explosions.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I was an English major, so I love discussing possibilities and alternate theories.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I would not call myself Catholic anymore, but I went to 16 years of Catholic school: grade school, high school and college.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the summer of 2009, I was at the Shakespeare lab at the public theater in New York.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I worked in script development, many years ago, and read a lot of scripts. Between that and the scripts I've read as an actor, and I'm a writer as well, I think I have a pretty good sense about whether the bones of a story are there and whether the structure is intact.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I guess every actor has certain emotions they can access easier than others.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I've made a number of independent films that didn't receive theatrical distribution, that a lot of people haven't heard of, and as a result, I've conditioned myself to go into small independent films with the expectation that they will not, and therefore, I have to find my reward elsewhere.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you think about filmmaking as an entire spectrum, starting with the writer and ending with maybe the marketing department, the actor's contribution is a rather slender band.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every actor has their own method, so I'm not suggesting what works for me will work for everybody else.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One of the advantages of shooting digitally was that we had a lot of time. When you shoot, even if you do a good performance, it may get lost in the editing room. It's just one more way that a potentially good film might go astray.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I feel honored to be a part of something that provided people with entertainment and that inspired conversations. I feel very, very fortunate.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One of the great things about film is that, typically anything that's introduced in the first five minutes, the audiences will by into.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I can be a bit of a science geek. I tend more towards reading about brain science, neuroscience. I was an English major, so I love discussing possibilities and alternate theories. Aside from the science aspect of it, the philosophical possibilities are so interesting.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I went to Notre Dame. I don't know if that has any relevance, but maybe we all had a little too much philosophy and theology.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
They [teachers] beat it right out of me. Or they beat it into me and educated it out of me. I don't know; that's an interesting question. The Catholic schools required work, so I think that may have been where the work ethic came from, in answer to the question of how my character may have been shaped.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't think that necessarily I was encouraged by the nuns and the priest to consider alternate possibilities to the universe.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I do like taking on responsibility, sometimes too much. But I was aware of that early on and it's something that came up in the previous set of interviews, and that is the actor‛s contribution.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's because you have no power. You give them all the material and the cinematographer, the director, the editor, boy what they can choose... You better hope they like you because they can slice and dice and make you look like a damn fool when your face and body are up there on a 30-foot screen.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Look, we all know how hard it is for us to - I'm going to speak for myself - find a still photo of yourself that you like. Like how many times do people send photos and you're like, "Oh burn it."More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Well, you're in a theater and it's 24 shots a second, your face, your body, your voice, and it's your craft, the way you earn your living, and it's indelible. It's not like writing a script - I write as well - I can't do another draft, it's done.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Generally a wise actor will be very careful about the person to whom he gives that power.More William Mapother [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
