“In the season finale, my character watches the love of his life blow up in an airplane on tape. I spend 70 hours a week trying to be this person – and when we did the take, I completely broke down and was inconsolable for 10 minutes. There was no boundary between pretending and reality. You move so fast in television that I couldn’t have any expectations about how I would play that scene – expectations will get you in trouble – so I just did my homework, and that’s what happened. It’s one of those moments that were just the culmination of the work I’d put into the character, and it all came out at one time, involuntarily.”
