On Being an Ape

Reading Time: 1 minute

Really enjoyed reading this piece on what it’s like to act an ape.

Most of the actors that do play apes have told me that it’s been one of the most profound things they’ve done, because you have to be so honest with yourself. That has happened for me through this character Rocket. He is that open, vulnerable, grounded, connected, feeling creature that I aspire to be all the time. There’s an honesty that is so fun to play. It’s a profound experience, it really is.
