Mackenzie Davis quotes

  • I don't just act to pay my rent. I really like doing it, so I get frustrated when I don't get to do it all the time, so short films are a really great way to be doing it and working with your friends, working on smaller, more specific things without limiting yourself in other ways.

  • As a viewer, I'm personally less interested in the damaged, white, middle-class male figuring out his dreams and more interested in maybe an underdog figuring out how they're going to survive in a world that doesn't necessarily invite them in.

  • You can make a beautiful, airtight world that's fascinating to look at, but it's not interesting unless you have a character that's trying to achieve something under the circumstances of that world. It's harder to play a wacky girlfriend whose journey you just don't understand.

  • I just like the insides of things and finding ways into microscopic worlds. There's also an element of control, taking things apart and putting them back together. It's a very tedious task. You can be alone and create a world for yourself.

  • I feel really comfortable when the camera is rolling. I feel less comfortable in the moments before and after, like, "Okay, where do I sit now?" I find the social aspect of being on a project ... it's just a lot. There are so many new people, and it's a lot of introducing the most charming, most engaging, funniest version of yourself to, essentially, a bunch of strangers you already know too many details about.

  • I'm always down to chill with people. I'm so happy to have a conversation. But, yeah, I feel like if you're always exposing yourself, if you're always engaging with social media, then you no longer have the right to say no. And I want to retain that right, for as long as I can.

  • When I was younger, I wanted to guard myself against criticism, so I did so much more work than was needed. Now, though, it's sometimes better to understand something intuitively than have to dig your way into a character.

  • A weird thing about being an actress is that shooting movies doesn't feel like watching movies. It feels like being in a warehouse.

  • I don't want to be precious or weird . It's lovely to be recognized by people who like your work, and it's not as if I've done a Marvel movie. People say that with great power comes great responsibility, but it's more like shitty things will happen if you take certain jobs.

  • Acting was always something I pursued by myself. When we were in college, I took an acting class that I was so passionate about and devoted to, but I went to it privately and never really spoke about it. I'd have these ecstatic experiences in, like, a church basement and then never talk about it with other people.

  • I went to theater school, and if I spent time with one school of thought in this whole acting game, it's the Meisner approach of improvise-based acting. This does not mean that you improvise your acting, but that you focus on the other person.
    -- Mackenzie Davis

  • I'm really aware of the conversations that surround young actresses in Hollywood. I always get myself into a hole with these conversations, and I get weirdly quoted, and I sound militant and like I'm not thankful at all, and I'm so thankful of everything that's happening. But I'm an active observer of the machinations of this world.

  • It was really unusual to go from being in university for four years to all of a sudden acting every day. I'd never been able to do it exclusively like that. It was always sort of like my secret thing that I did privately.
