Martin Campbell Had Me working physically in the space.Instead of working in static mic, he HAD me moving from one to Another.
Being a director yourself, how do you judge Martin Campbell's work?
I think Martin is one of the best directors working today.That I'm One Of Those directors like to work with a shot-list and Planned my whole day, I know I tend to favor Directors That shows up in the morning Knowing What They Want. As an actor I am Old-school, Meaning That For me, the director is the Boss.That I have to trust the story he has in His Head.From the second I met Martin in the parking lot at Warner Brothers, I knew That Both Knew what he wanted and he Knew Exactly What He Was doing.

I Studied the History of the Lantern Corp. G'Hu His foundation is at a Soldier, so I started there.Since the approach to role-preparation the Same Way, I Had to find HIM physically as well.Whether or not I am seen or heard, real is real and my goal is always to bring a living breathing character to the story. I Studied all of the available images and Gh'u Eventually Was Able to "fill" the character.In the case of Gh'u I found the character in my fingers.

I view the work as the same.No difference at all.
