Don’t you love Cullen Bohannon in Hell on Wheels? For sure, everybody does. But how about Anson Mount? This actor is very secretive. However, we can find some clues about his personality: brave, Southern man, full of old traditions, happy, shy…
Anson Mount best quotes:
Brave: I don’t go to movies for redemption – if I want that, I’ll go to church!
Southern man: I grew up in the South, so a huge part of our American History education revolved around the Civil War.
Full of old traditions: I have a great-great-great-grandfather who was a Confederate cavalry colonel, and I still have his military composite photo on my wall. The chemicals in the photo tint have changed over the years to the point that he looks green. One of my family members apparently still has the piece of paper that listed every thing in his pocket when he got shot.
Happy: For me, acting is play. It’s just play and it’s playing make believe really, really well.
Sincere: I don’t care about sympathy. I care about playing a character who’s understandable and clear.
Shy: I’m an enemy of exposition. I feel there’s no need to overstate.
