"The piano duet wasn’t in the script, and it wasn’t even my idea! When I first went to New York to meet with Philip Glass I asked him to create a song [India and Charlie] could play together for that scene. And he said, "Well, I’ve got to know what kind of scene it is for me to write it." So we’re saying, it’s a piano performance, but it’s actually sex. And he said, "Oh, I got it. I once made a piece called Four Hands, a married couple were playing it and one day the husband said, while we can play it like this, we can also play it like this [mimes the man putting his arm around the woman to reach the other side of the keyboard.] Right away that night, I changed the script to have Charlie’s arm going around India." - Park Chan-wook

I love playing all kinds of roles, and I hope it doesn’t sound too pretentious, but I always feel like human nature is like a piano and there are 88 keys and there are some white keys and some black keys and each character is a different chord on the piano. Basically, I hope that in the course of my life I will have played all 88 keys in lots of different ways. So I’ll have played heroes, and villains, and princes and kings and warriors and beggars and thieves and lovers and, fathers and wizards and all of those things. So that’s it, for me, that’s why I’m an actor. I love studying people. I loved playing him [Loki]. x
"I dreamt a dream tonight."
And so did I.
"Well, what was yours?"
That dreamers often lie.
"In bed asleep while they do dream things true.”
In novels, stream of consciousness goes inside the hero’s head and you can read what he’s thinking. You don’t have that in television and so I thought that if I took a perfect person and divided him into three parts, I could have the administrative, courageous part that would be the Captain; the logical part who is the Science Officer and the humanistic part with the Doctor.
