You can’t let yourself worry when you play a classic role. I’m an introvert anyway. Playing the extroverted girl in Breakfast at Tiffany’s was the hardest thing I ever did. If I had stopped to think about comparison with my predecessors as Eliza, I’d have frozen completely. But I loved this part. Eliza is vulnerable, but she has a beautiful inner strength. I made myself forget the problems. I threw myself into it and tried to make it me.
