Actor Anson Mount during a recent promotional tour stop for his hit television show "Hell on Wheels" revealed that not only is he not a believer in 'method acting' but he despises any discussion of the topic. The concept of 'method acting' was brought forth to him by Canadian Press at the Banff World Media Festival and many in the audience were quite surprised at his reaction as he became visibly angry about the topic.

He stated that he is a 'huge critic of 'method' acting as he is of the belief that actors merely pretend that they are the characters and that they do not become the characters in real life and he uses his own role in "Hell on Wheels" as an example. In the show his character is focused on getting revenge on those individuals who killed his wife and young son and thus the concept that he lives this type of life is in his view nonsense. 
 
The actor definitely no 'shrinking violet' as he is unafraid to voice his opinion as he revealed in the interview during which he expressed a huge amount of gratefulness to the studio executives for their willingness to create a project that revolves around the lives of a Confederate in the United States. He displays the type of 'take no prisoners' attitude with his opinion and acting that attracts filmmakers who want someone who projects a very strong personality on screen

Not many actors would be willing to admit that they hate hearing non-southern actors play the role that is associated with Southern Americans nor would they admit to badly wanting the role of a protagonist who was a former Confederate. 
 
Anson Mount is definitely not an actor who provides 'politically correct' answers but he is someone who dramatic range and strong personality has made him an in-demand actor with filmmakers in Hollywood.
