“I was kind of surprised to be offered the role. It wouldn’t have been a character I thought I would be right to play, but working with David (Cronenberg) I figured there was something to it. It was both interesting and challenging. Playing Freud was scary, but I enjoyed the research process. It’s the most enjoyable part. The shoot is usually not as much fun or interesting.”
