Liv spoke earlier today at Oxford Union
, tidbits and photos from the appearance can be found on Twitter:
My mom was actually the first person to say I was going to be an actress. I think she saw that I've always been very empathetic - I'm like a sponge for people and observing them, and being aware of their emotions.
People always ask which character is the most like you. I try and tell them that it's like when you fall in love and you're obsessed with someone - that's what I do when I have a character. I don't want to distinguish myself because I'm always thinking of my character
I act just because of that connection and total bliss that I get whenever I'm doing what I'm doing. I always feel so blessed that I get to go to work and do the thing that makes me happy.
I always wind up wanting to cut dialogue because I often think I can convey something with emotion or movement instead. It's funny because a lot of directors kid me for being the only actor they've worked with who wants to cut their lines.
