When I look for the next project, it's always about, "Is it going to push me out of my comfort zone? Am I doing something different? Am I working with people who are passionate about what they're doing?" At the end of the day, if I'm going to be bored on set, then I'm not gonna be happy.
For myself, I would rather take [fewer] roles and be working on films that I'm passionate about, that are going to challenge me and that I'm going to be growing from. I don't ever want to take a movie just for the sake of working.
Life is too short to be doing work that doesn't make you feel happy and fulfilled. I'd rather wait for the right project, as opposed to just taking whatever is handed to me.
