Irony is one of my favorite aspects of life.Wes Studi
In the ’70s, with movies like ‘Little Big Man,’ westerns began to have a little different flavor, and I think casting people and filmmakers began to realize, ‘Hey, maybe we can get a little more authentic in terms of who we cast here.’ That kind of opened up the gates.Wes Studi
I think that the idea of sharing is something that has been lost in our social conscience, and we need to re-think that. We need to learn a new way.Wes Studi
One of the things I learned early on was the system of believing: you have to believe in what you say. The camera is the arbiter of truth; it’s the all-seeing eye that can pick out discrepancies. You can’t lie to the camera. You must believe in what you’re saying, or the audience won’t believe you.Wes Studi
I’m proud to have served there for 12 months with Alpha Company of the 39th Infantry.Wes Studi
