The 55-year-old actor recently talked to the magazine about the challenges of taking on a role like Abraham Lincoln.
“It didn’t occur to me that it was possible to breathe life into Abraham Lincoln,” Daniel said. “I felt so shy around him.”
“The minute you begin to approach him—and there are vast corridors that have been carved that lead you to an understanding of that man’s life, both through the great riches of his own writing and all the contemporary accounts and biographies—he feels immediately and surprisingly accessible. He draws you closer to him,” he added.
