You play this character, this villainous character, in almost such an effortless way. Do you like to explore that side of Bucky a little more than the other part of him that you portrayed in the first film?
“At that point, I think some time has passed since the ending of the movie. I’m not sure how much, but some time has passed. All that scene really is about is that, wherever we pick him up in that scene, he’s obviously in a place where he’s been starting to kind of question things and be aware of things he wasn’t aware of before. And so, I don’t know, that might be somewhere on his research into finding things out about himself. There’s no particular time other than that’s where we catch him when we see that scene. And I’d say the seed for that was planted at the very end of the movie. That’s why he doesn’t kill him. That’s why he saves him. That end scene to me was always like: ‘I don’t know what this is, I just know I’m supposed to do this right now. Whatever this is, I’m supposed to protect this for some reason. There’s something about it that’s unexplored, and I’m going to figure it out.’ And that’s kind of where he’s at at the end of the movie. It’s not like he’s going, ‘Captain, Steve, let me take you out of the water,’ you know what I mean?”
"I live in New York and I love it, because it doesn’t make me feel like my life is always just about acting and that world of acting. I don’t have expectations."
