#Quote
1 When you're working, you're high on the adrenalin of the whole process. When you stop, you get almost classic withdrawal symptoms -- nervousness, edginess, you can't sleep. Acting is an essence that actors adore. I guess I shouldn't equate it with drugs because I've never been into that experience, but that's I suppose it must be. I'm so scared in front of the camera, there is so much terror, I get this rush of adrenalin. Then, I'm not Vernon Wells anymore, I'm the character. The energy is up, the metabolism is pumped up. You do that every day for eight weeks then stop cold and it seems like there's nothing to get up for in the morning.
