And that training was pivotal in his breakthrough role, playing the late IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands in Hunger, his first collaboration with the director Steve McQueen… the already slim actor dropped 35 pounds and learned an important lesson from McQueen. “I’ve been hearing it since Hunger,” he says. “‘We’re gonna be gone one day, so why not just let it all hang out?

Because sometimes you don’t know what you’re trying to discover.’ To put yourself in jeopardy, I think, is important for an actor.”
somebody should write an essay comparing and contrasting tina from bob’s burgers and meg from family guy and explain why tina hit the mark for respectfully portraying the awkward teenage years and why meg is a huge fucking insensitive joke that isn’t even funny

wow that’s a pretty concise essay
