A character on screen that's the 'good guy' or the 'bad guy', they're never interesting. There's got to be an internal struggle, the duality is important to find.
I was raised in a reform synagogue. I think we all bring with us a sense of when hard things happen to us, we find ourselves asking questions of why are these things happening to me at this time in my life. I think in that sense, there's a certain resonance that I carry. It's more of a spiritual resonance as opposed to particularly of Judaism.
