ms. mortimer

just read this profile on emily mortimer from the weekend's times. she's sweet.

“We used to sit in [Ben Kingsley's] compartment on that freezing train for hours and hours and talk about acting,” she said. “What he kept saying was you don’t have to tell the story with your face. The audience will impose it. You don’t have to act out the story every second. It’s the sort of thing a guru would say, but that’s the way he is, very calm and gurulike. One night we went to an Indian restaurant in Lithuania, and they thought it was Gandhi.”
