I like to do something I fear. I like to set up obstacles and defeat them. I like to be afraid of the project. I always am. When I get cast in something, I always believe I shouldn`t have been cast. I fooled them again. I can`t do it. I don`t know how to do it. There`s a huge amount of anxiety that drowns out any excitement I have toward the project.
