The New York Times interviewed actors Viola David and Edie Falco:
New York Times: You’d rather be struggling still?
Viola Davis: I look back on those early days in the theater like the beginning of a love affair, when you’re totally in love with the work, and that’s all there is. None of the outside effects, no celebrity or interviews — no offense …
Edie Falco: And the ones who really wanted to act were doing theater.
