You don’t know really what’s going to happen, whether it’s going to come or not come. But, the work that it takes from me is a little personal. I would say it like has, has its effect for the, for a while. And that’s an effect that I want. That’s why I’m there. That’s what I, that’s what I live for. You know, to some sort of emotional catharsis of my own. I’m actually, I was saying this to somebody else the other day that I’m not particularly during these emotional scenes. I’m not performing for an audience. I’m doing it for myself to be very honest with you. I am using it very selfishly to catharsis. So yeah, it’s therapy.”
