The 45-year-old actor recently discussed what it is like portraying real characters, such as David Frost in Frost/Nixon.
“Partly it depends on how familiar the audience is with them. You obviously have to take on board how someone looks and sounds and moves. But to try and make that tied to who they are underneath…those are the sort of stuff you would do for any character but you have an end result already pre-existing with characters like that and they have to somehow match up in some way. So that’s a much different challenge to the challenge to playing someone like Bill (Masters of Masters of Sex), who is still a real person but I’m not trying to match up to some sort of pre-existing image,” Michael told Zap2it.
