Actors are misunderstood: cox
For Brian Cox, an actor's job is to reflect the truth. The X-Men star, however, feels people don’t really understand actors. “People don’t really understand actors very much. I constantly find that actors are misunderstood,” Cox, 73 said.
“People think that actors do some kind of magic. I’d go back to William Shakespeare’s Hamlet quote: ‘Twere, the mirror up to nature’ to describe my job as an actor,” he said.
Cox says he finds the journey of exploring human experiences through his work fascinating. “(My job is) To tell the truth about situations, about why people come to be what they are. That is endlessly fascinating. It gets more fascinating at my age,” he pointed out.
At present, Cox, who started working in the 60s, is seen as media mogul Logan Roy in the show Succession, aired in India on Star World.
