Summary
I've got nothing to offer as a personality, insists Peter Sellers in this fascinating and surprisingly guileless 1960 conversation. Even today Sellers' assertion will strike some viewers as odd, given his obvious comic talents and the virtuosity of his many performances. But Sellers goes on to draw a distinction between a character actor and a genuine movie star, saying that the latter tends to let his or her natural inner self shape a role, while the task of the former is to invent-or, in Sellers' case, inhabit-a temporary persona. Discussing specific film roles, such as those in I'm All Right Jack and The Mouse That Roared, Sellers also describes his off-camera desire for privacy, his attitudes toward stage work and audiences, and the "general madness" and political absurdities that found their way onto The Goon Show
