I’m actually quite obsessed with my beard and spend a lot of time on it. I even bought myself a beard brush! The other day I said to my barber, that he has to teach me as I continue to even cut it, because I do not want to continue to be dependent on him. I fear only that he does not admit himself on that.
I feel like I’ve really earnt my stripes. I feel ready to play a lead. I would just love to prove I’m good enough to carry a project. But like any actor I berate myself on a day-to-day basis – I’m not doing well enough, or I didn’t get that role, or I haven’t done enough theatre… I’m shit, I’m shit, I’m crap, I’m crap… Oh, God, you know. It is important to stop and look and think how far I have come. We all need some TLC and to pat ourselves on the back from time to time.
