"All empires are created of fire & blood."
"I've always been interested in storytelling. It's in me. Whereas the same cannot be said for directing. I'd never even thought about doing my first film. I just had a story to offer. I can only transcribe what I see in my head. In my view, the director reproduces a sort of dream world of his own creation. I see the most beautiful shots and the best staging in my dreams. I try to bring together the images, the scenes and the emotions in the service of the story, using my experiences as an actor and my cinematographic tastes."
