"I think unless you’re in a James Bond movie that never works. As an actor, the only thing we can do is play the truth at that moment. Because at any point in time if you play the future, or you play that you know something that the audience does not know, it kills the illusion of reality. Because none of us go into a room knowing what’s going to happen, we all walk into that room with an idea of how to execute our plan. So the only thing that you can bring into a conversation or into a room is your past, giving the audience the opportunity to realize what’s really happening." - from Screenrant, Jan. 19, 2012
