Scandal star Tony Goldwyn is news because he stars in the movie “Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs,” premiering June 28th 2014.
The movie is based on the true story of the polygamist cult leader Warren Jeffs and the trail of destruction he left behind. Then, he plays a very different role to that of President Fitzgerald Grant at Scandal TV show.
However, how about the actor? How about Tony Goldwyn true personality? Today, some traits. Listen to him!
He is brave, active, supportive, emotive, sincere and passionate about his work.
Brave: The more decisions you make, the better, statistically, your odds of success are. And what I also learned was, it doesn’t matter: anything can be fixed. When you’re directing, you can agonize, but you can’t indulge. Stuff has to happen.
Active: I want to keep doing different things. I’d like to do a more personal, dramatic movie next, I think. But as long as it’s about characters and good writing and good parts for actors, that’s what’s important.
Supportive: I view the whole thing as a collaboration. As an actor, I always found that to be the most freeing thing, when the director would collaborate with you, so that together you’d come up with something exponentially better.
Emotive: Nothing’s wrong with honest emotion… Life is a very emotional experience.
Sincere: We want to live in the black and white, but we don’t. The world is gray. And, I’m always fascinated by people who are clearly, ‘This is black and this is white, and that’s the way life is.’ Life always has something to say about that.
Passionate about his work: I don’t want to do an action movie, because I’ve acted in them, and they’re so boring to do, because they’re so technical. The headache of that is daunting. But, if it were an action movie with really interesting characters, how great would that be?
