“You’ve played a lot of definitively Jewish characters, including Shylock. Do you think Jewish actors run the risk of being typecast? All actors run that risk. The challenge for theatre is to represent Jewish life in all its multiplicity. It’s always, “Oh, come to my bar mitzvah.” We never see the average Jewish businessman or captain or sewage expert. It’s like casting all Irish people as potato-digging idiots.” (The Guardian)
