Missy very quickly puts you at your ease. She makes you feel comfortable. It’s too much for her to put on an act, so she’s simply herself - real - and real means self-reliant. She’s more concerned with seeing to it that everybody else is happy than in worrying about her own happiness. I’ve seen her many a time bend over backwards to help someone else, and let herself sort of slide. She’ll read in the paper that somebody is going through something and she’ll try to help them without even letting them know she’s doing it. She’s a shy, sensitive person, and a lot of times she has to pick herself up by the bootstraps and make herself do things. And she makes her own decisions and works out her own problems.

When I’m doing a role, a good role, I’m being someone other than me. See, I’m a true Irishman, and I glide with the leprechauns. They say the Irish are brash, but there’s also a quietness. Sometimes I can sit a whole evening and say nothing - but I absorb everything. I happen to like being alone a lot. I’m called a little nuts. I call it concentration. So I have a shell I creep into. So? I marvel at people who have theories about acting. I just go and do the work. Frank Capra taught me that if you can think, you can make the audience know it. You can make them know what you are going to do. On the stage, it’s mannerisms. On the screen, your range is shown in your eyes.
