[In reference to Eph’s change in appearance] There was a lot made of the “Wig-Gate.” Are you relieved that’s behind you now and were you surprised at all the attention that it got?
Corey: Yes, I’m relieved, and I spoke about this at the TCAs that it was…just from the sense that it was a distraction for the audience. It’s unfortunate, and there’s an unfortunate bargain that every actor has to make–they don’t have to make, but often makes is that the more you work, the more recognizable you are. That can be helpful in getting you more work, but it’s detrimental to your job as an actor because you’re less able to disappear into the role.
I can see why someone like Johnny Depp has gotten so enamored of really intense hair and makeup for his roles, because when you get that famous it can sort of be the only way to really do your job, just sort of become somebody else. So that’s an unfortunate thing that people’s ability to see past the image. It was limited here. So yeah, it’s a relief to have that not be an issue in this particular project.
