Hannibal: “Characters of grey morals, it seems, are those that Richard likes best”

“Characters of grey morals, it seems, are those that Richard likes best. “Everyone is so convinced that [Thorin] is who they think he is, and it’s my job to unwrap him a little bit and say ‘you’re right, he is all of those things, but this is why he’s all of those things’.”

“I’ve never played a psychotic mass-murderer,” Richard continued, “but if I did, I would still attempt to find a kind of empathy with him and an explanation as to why he turned out the way he did, and in a court of law I’d end up being able to stand up and say ‘look, this is why this guy shouldn’t be put to death, because of this’. In a way you have to fall in love with the character you’re playing and be able to defend him in that way.”

The role he’s just waiting to be offered? “A psychotic mass-murderer.””
