Interview with Hugo Weaving at Dark Horizons

Thanks to SuperHero Hype, I've found a new interview with Hugo Weaving. The article does focus in on Weaving's role as V, although there isn't too much that hasn't already been said elsewhere. Some interesting tidbits:

Weaving said that playing the character in mask, "is a technical exercise, and then it became something slightly different so that was pretty interesting. Still I think we were still trying to go through a performance and that was very important because ultimately I realised, well the performance did start to bring the character to life, and initially I was thinking much more in terms of the outward effect and, well if I do this or if I do that. I mean the mask is still like that or that or if I do certain things and punctuate certain words with certain movements, then that will animate it. And it did to a point and then the more I did it, the more I forgot about those tiny little movements and the move the performance started doing those things for me."

Weaving also states he'll be doing the press junket for the movie come February, so it won't be long before we get innundated with articles and info about the movie.

*cracks up*

Methinks that's the kind of interview you have to hear instead of read. I've read it twice now and it still makes almost no sense to me. Silly actors.
I really, really like these:

"You get to meet this very theatrical character but it's on screen. He's in a mask, he talks a lot, it's a completely fixed mask but he's talking a lot, which is a very audacious thing to try and put something like that on screen."
