Act­ing is scary: Mag­gie Smith

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Bri­tish ac­tor Mag­gie Smith (above) in­sists she is still “scared” of act­ing. The 80-year-old, who is said to be a “dif­fi­cult” per­son to work with, ex­plains that peo­ple find her na­ture frosty but in fact, it ap­pears so be­cause she is still so ner­vous about do­ing her job, re­ported Tele­graph. “Oh, I know, I keep hear­ing that. Ob­vi­ously at times I have been like that — the aw­ful thing is, I’m sort of very aware when I’m be­ing dif­fi­cult but I’m usu­ally ... so scared ... And that’s shaming, at the age one is,” Smith said.

“Be­cause ev­ery time I start any­thing, I think, ‘This time I’m go­ing to be like Jude (ac­tor Judi Dench), and it will all be lovely, it will be merry and bright, the Quaker will come out in me.’ But it never works. Jude has a won­der­ful calm, it’s en­vi­able. I think it would be hairy if she let fly, but I’ve never seen that.”
