Early in my acting career I wouldve loved to play the roles performed by Daniel Day Lewis (such as My Left Foot,Gangs of New York and There Will be Blood). But over the years,I began to admire Lewiss performance in My Left Foot. The physical pain and emotional suppression of a gifted Irish painter who uses his left foot to communicate his art is a role worth dying for. This is an ultimate character for any actor as it entails a physicality,which is unusual and unique.
