One of the beautiful things about living and making your life as an actor is to inhabit a plethora of different roles from project to project. But with different scripts and characters come different demands and expectations, which then informs your process to building a performance from the ground up. Your process should always be changing, even if just a little bit. That much is true, at least, for “Westworld” star and Emmy winner Jeffrey Wright, who above discusses the different factors he considers when choosing a role, and the one thing that’s remained constant in his acting process throughout the years.
