Some might say the Comte de Guiche is a bad guy, but Page said he never felt like he was playing the villain.
"My point of view is [the Comte de Guiche] is offering Roxane something that’s really quite good for her, just to be involved with me, and I’m very close to the most powerful man in France, Cardinal Richelieu, and I think I’d be a good catch," Page said. "And the things that I do in the play that are regrettable—like placing the men into battle in a suicide mission—someone does have to do it, and I’m provoked into it, and then rationalize that, in fact, they are the best people to go in there. So I don’t see him as a villain at all. I’m perfectly happy if people want to say that, but I don’t see him that way."
Page, whose Broadway credits include "Julius Caesar" and "Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark," offered up some acting advice.
"My main piece of advice is that [you] should do the work, wherever," he said. "If no one will hire you, put together a one person show and find a place to do it. And if you can’t find a place to do it, do it in the park."
