Hugo Weaving QuotesHugo Wallace Weaving is an English actor resident in Australia. He is best known for playing Agent Smith in The Matrix trilogy (1999–2003), Elrond in The Lord of the Rings (2001–2003) and The Hobbit (2012–2014) film trilogies, V in V for Vendetta (2006), and Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011).
The biggest challenge for me, as an actor, is to be informed, prepared and focused, at the same time. I had to just keep on working, prepping, reading and imagining, all the way through, but the biggest challenge is always to let go of all that and just be open to others. That’s what we do, as actor. We play with each other and we stimulate each other, and we have to be prepared to be stimulated by the other. That’s always my big challenge.
