Space is important to us and that?s why we’re working to bring you top coverage of the industry and Florida launches. Journalism like this takes time and resources. Please support it with a subscription here.

Despite a slowdown in Florida’s rocket launch cadence in recent months due to supply chain issues and shortages, teams are hoping to squeeze in up to five more missions before the year is out.

From a Space Force mission to a resupply run to the International Space Station, both SpaceX and United Launch Alliance have requested time on the Eastern Range this holiday season. NASA’s high-profile, multibillion-dollar James Webb Space Telescope is set for launch in mid-December as well, though not from Florida’s shores.

What’s coming next:

Dec. 1: SpaceX / Starlink

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket clears low-lying fog and the lightning protection system at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station's Launch Complex 40 on Saturday, Nov. 13, 2021. The mission marked the 31st for SpaceX's Starlink internet constellation.

SpaceX will launch a Falcon 9 rocket and the 32nd batch of Starlink internet satellites from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station no earlier than Wednesday, Dec. 1. Launch Complex 40 will host the liftoff currently scheduled between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. ET.

After deployment, the Starlink constellation will have more than 1,750 satellites operating in low-Earth orbit.

Dec. 5: ULA / STP-3

A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket set to its most powerful configuration will launch a Space Force mission from Cape Canaveral on Saturday, Dec. 4. Teams at Launch Complex 41 have two hours ? 4:04 a.m. to 6:04 a.m. ET ? to launch the rocket outfitted with five solid rocket motors.

New Corona variant from South Africa is causing worries around the world

According to the Interior Ministry, the new variant has not yet been proven in Germany. However, it can be assumed that the prevalence is already significantly greater than the known cases.

The World Health Organization has classified the new Corona variant B.1.1.529 as “worrying” and thus assigned a letter of the Greek alphabet to it. The variant that was found mainly in South Africa and Botswana is called Omikron.

Dhe Corona variant B.1.1.529 is officially considered “worrying”. This was announced by the World Health Organization (WHO) after consulting a group of experts on Friday evening. This means that the variant is assigned a letter of the Greek alphabet like others before: Omicron.

A statement from the organization said the variant had a large number of mutations, including some worrying ones. Preliminary indications indicated an increased risk of reinfection with this variant compared to other worrying variants, which also include the currently predominant delta variant. The WHO is also responsible for the rapid spread of the variant in South Africa.

According to the WHO, B.1.1.529 was discovered in South Africa using genetic analysis from November 9th. Overall, the variant has so far been genetically detected less than 100 times. It has many mutations that scientists believe could potentially lead to easier transmission. However, according to the WHO, it will be weeks before it becomes clear what the exact effects of the mutations are.

Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta are already “worrying variants”

So far, the international health authority had identified four “variants of concern” (VOC): Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta, which contributed to the fourth wave of pandemics due to their high transferability. In addition, two “variants of interest” (VOI) are listed that appeared in South America at the turn of the previous year: Lambda and Mu. Other VOI have since been removed from the list.

The European Commission, Germany and a few other countries announced on Friday that they would restrict entry from southern Africa. Instead, WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier recommended scientifically sound measures and risk assessments on behalf of his organization. “As of this writing, there are reservations about travel restrictions,” he said. From the perspective of the WHO, damage to international traffic should be avoided. Instead, the precise observation of the infection process and the genetic analysis of any corona cases should be relied on.

The South African Health Minister Joe Phaahla called the travel restrictions “unjustified”. So far it is unclear whether variant B.1.1.529 is more contagious than other variants, he said at a press conference.

Le Pen-Zemmour: the Front race for the Presidential electiondossier

The quasi-candidate’s trip to the Mediterranean city on Friday was more like an escorted walk and a brisk walk than a triumphant visit.

For those who praise the traditions and the France of yesteryear, there is one in Marseille that has been lost over time, but sometimes comes back on occasion: the inhabitants of Le Panier, the historic district of the city, had taken advantage of to throw eggs and their old tomatoes on the little train of tourists passing through their alleys. To express their fed up with these visitors to the zoo, busy eyeing the popular streets. Come to take his first little country walk, outside the rooms crowded with fanatics, the imitation presidential candidate Eric Zemmour – soon declared – was entitled to this ritual reception on Friday.

Skimming the walls in the rise of Accoules, usually used by nomadic strollers, but this time quite empty, the former CNews columnist, visibly lost, tense by this contact with all-new reality, marched at a pace surrounded a swarm of unnecessarily numerous journalists and plainclothes policemen who served as barriers against insults. A group of hooded opponents followed the thing with cries of “Facho, break yourself, anti-racist Marseille”. An oviparous projectile almost hit the group: a small victory for these dangerous leftists, Zemmour technically did not set foot in the ?real? Basket, contenting himself to bypass it as far as the Bishop’s Palace, the police station, where a car was waiting to take him away from here.

Ambulation trap

We were expecting a “Kärcher” sequence as Zemmour had promised by bandaging the muscles …

To not miss anything on African news, subscribe to the newsletter of World Africa from this link. Every Saturday at 6 a.m., find a week of current events and debates treated by the editorial staff of World Africa.

Senegalese await the arrival of Chinese President Xi Jinping at Dakar airport in July 2018.

Thierry Pairault is a sinologist and socio-economist, emeritus research director (CNRS / EHESS) and specialist in the Chinese presence in Africa. He has just published, with Xavier Richet, Chinese economic presence in the Mediterranean (published by L’Harmattan / Iremmo). In an interview with World Africa, he explains that the Forum on Sino-African Cooperation (Focac) which takes place in Dakar from Sunday 28 to Tuesday 30 November begins “The end of illusions” after years of Chinese funding with limited impact on the continent’s development.

In what climate is the Dakar Focac opening up?

For the Chinese as for the Africans, it is a bit of the end of illusions. Everyone realizes that spending money is not enough to spark development. Africans, in particular, realize that the masses of money released by the Chinese, ultimately quite expensive in terms of interest rates and with very short repayment terms, are not enough to cause the economic and developmental shock. research.

Indirectly, this gives reason to the strategies of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which rather soften the pedal to retain the most considered projects. This awareness is new on the African side. But the Chinese agree: they admit themselves that they have not carried out the profitability studies that were necessary to make the projects viable. They have therefore become harsher in the allocation of credits. The Dakar Focac is part of this context of a review taking place on both sides.

How to identify the mutual interests between China and Africa?

The relationship is deeply asymmetric. China is damn important to Africa. The arrival of the Chinese, with their projects and their funding, allowed Africans to come out of the face-to-face, which was like a monologue, with the former colonial powers. It offers them a way to set themselves apart from the West, another way of looking at the world organization. In the other direction, namely the Chinese interest in Africa, it is necessary to distinguish the economic one from the political one.

Economically, Africa is by no means a priority for China. Africa’s place in China’s foreign merchandise trade is exactly the same as its place in world trade (3%). From this point of view, we must consider the Chinese ?silk roads? beyond rhetoric. Africa is only interesting for China insofar as it borders sea routes to Europe. The Horn of Africa is certainly involved, but the Chinese objective is access to the European market.

However, a whole discourse has been built on Chinese investments in Africa …

Be careful, we must distinguish between real investments and services in the construction and infrastructure sectors (stadiums, airports, roads, real estate, etc.), which can be between ten and twenty times higher. In 2019, the former amounted to $ 2.7 billion [environ 2,4 milliards d?euros] and the seconds to 44 billion. The reality is that China is a service provider rather than an investor in Africa. By way of comparison, Chinese investments in Laos, a small country of 7 million inhabitants, alone represent in recent years around 30-40% of Chinese investments in the whole of Africa, a continent of 1.2 billion inhabitants.

Chinese activities in Africa are more about trade – goods or services – than production. Because besides the provision of services, there is foreign trade, which is still twice as high. We can clearly see that the commercial part is much more important than the actual investments. China participates only marginally in the industrialization of the continent. All the more so as these investments are concentrated on labor-intensive and low-capital-intensive activities, such as mining or leather goods, and involve little technology transfer.

Since you are talking about mines, doesn’t China depend on these African supplies?

Absolutely not. China has played a reasonable card in diversifying its suppliers. We saw this when the crisis broke out with Australia. Guinea immediately replaced it as supplier of iron and bauxite. For all products, Beijing has alternatives. On oil for example, Angola, which supplied 7% of the Chinese needs, has just lost around 20% of this market. China has thus left itself a great deal of flexibility. On raw materials, African suppliers depend more on the Chinese customer than the opposite.

Is China’s interest in Africa therefore only political?

Every time China invests a small amount, buys or sells, it allows it to retain a clientele from which it will collect dividends at the United Nations – in terms of votes in the General Assembly. This is how she was able to obtain the direction of four UN agencies: the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Organization for industrial development (Onudi) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). Neither the Europeans nor the Americans have ever led so many instances at the same time. China could only conquer these positions thanks to African support, which is rather cheap.

Senegalese await the arrival of Chinese President Xi Jinping at Dakar airport in July 2018.

Thierry Pairault is a sinologist and socio-economist, emeritus research director (CNRS / EHESS) and specialist in the Chinese presence in Africa. He has just published, with Xavier Richet, Chinese economic presence in the Mediterranean (published by L’Harmattan / Iremmo). In an interview with World Africa, he explains that the Forum on Sino-African Cooperation (Focac) which takes place in Dakar from Sunday 28 to Tuesday 30 November begins “The end of illusions” after years of Chinese funding with limited impact on the continent’s development.

In what climate is the Dakar Focac opening up?

For the Chinese as for the Africans, it is a bit of the end of illusions. Everyone realizes that spending money is not enough to spark development. Africans, in particular, realize that the masses of money released by the Chinese, ultimately quite expensive in terms of interest rates and with very short repayment terms, are not enough to cause the economic and developmental shock. research.

Indirectly, this gives reason to the strategies of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which rather soften the pedal to retain the most considered projects. This awareness is new on the African side. But the Chinese agree: they admit themselves that they have not carried out the profitability studies that were necessary to make the projects viable. They have therefore become harsher in the allocation of credits. The Dakar Focac is part of this context of a review taking place on both sides.

How to identify the mutual interests between China and Africa?

The relationship is deeply asymmetric. China is damn important to Africa. The arrival of the Chinese, with their projects and their funding, allowed Africans to come out of the face-to-face, which was like a monologue, with the former colonial powers. It offers them a way to set themselves apart from the West, another way of looking at the world organization. In the other direction, namely the Chinese interest in Africa, it is necessary to distinguish the economic one from the political one.

Economically, Africa is by no means a priority for China. Africa’s place in China’s foreign merchandise trade is exactly the same as its place in world trade (3%). From this point of view, we must consider the Chinese ?silk roads? beyond rhetoric. Africa is only interesting for China insofar as it borders sea routes to Europe. The Horn of Africa is certainly involved, but the Chinese objective is access to the European market.

However, a whole discourse has been built on Chinese investments in Africa …

Be careful, we must distinguish between real investments and services in the construction and infrastructure sectors (stadiums, airports, roads, real estate, etc.), which can be between ten and twenty times higher. In 2019, the former amounted to $ 2.7 billion [environ 2,4 milliards d?euros] and the seconds to 44 billion. The reality is that China is a service provider rather than an investor in Africa. By way of comparison, Chinese investments in Laos, a small country of 7 million inhabitants, alone represent in recent years around 30-40% of Chinese investments in the whole of Africa, a continent of 1.2 billion inhabitants.

Chinese activities in Africa are more about trade – goods or services – than production. Because besides the provision of services, there is foreign trade, which is still twice as high. We can clearly see that the commercial part is much more important than the actual investments. China participates only marginally in the industrialization of the continent. All the more so as these investments are concentrated on labor-intensive and low-capital-intensive activities, such as mining or leather goods, and involve little technology transfer.

Since you are talking about mines, doesn’t China depend on these African supplies?

Absolutely not. China has played a reasonable card in diversifying its suppliers. We saw this when the crisis broke out with Australia. Guinea immediately replaced it as supplier of iron and bauxite. For all products, Beijing has alternatives. On oil for example, Angola, which supplied 7% of the Chinese needs, has just lost around 20% of this market. China has thus left itself a great deal of flexibility. On raw materials, African suppliers depend more on the Chinese customer than the opposite.

The most famous James Bond of all time has just died at the age of 90. His last years were spent in retirement and his legacy seeks to be erased due to his machismo

Sean Connery is the protagonist of one of the most scandalous scenes in cinema. In Marnie, Tippi Hedren, who lived a true nightmare of abuse and obsession on the part of her director, Alfred Hitchcock, emerges from a swimming pool on a cruise ship somewhat dizzy from sleeping pills. Sean Connery takes her into the bedroom, strips her naked, and the door closes. In the next shot we find out that a violation was consumed. Critics at the time said it was a daring scene, ahead of its time. Today, despite her obvious attributes, Marnie is part of a Hollywood past that we want to erase.

Sean Connery was part of that past. His James Bond is not only the most famous but he is the most repulsive of the machistas. Or if you don’t look at a compilation of their interactions:

In an interview in 1987 Connery stated: “I don’t think it’s a bad thing to hit a woman if she deserves it”, or that other: is better hit women with an open hand than with a closed fist. “And he also closed with this pearl:” I’m not saying it’s a good thing, I’m saying that it can be done depending on the circumstances, “the actor assured.”There comes a time when, if you’ve already tried everything… Anyway, women are very good at this and they can’t let it be; they have to have the last word. And you give them the last word, but they are still not happy … They become very provocative“.

For W?s second annual TV Portfolio, we asked 26 of the most sought-after names in television to pay homage to their favorite small-screen characters by stepping into their shoes.

Andrew Koji has experienced a banner two years since 2019, when he snagged the lead role of martial arts prodigy Ah Sahm in the Cinemax turned HBO Max series Warrior, based on an original concept and treatment by Bruce Lee that?s being executive-produced by his daughter, Shannon Lee. Soon, Koji will be seen starring alongside Henry Golding in the action hero film Snake Eyes and Brad Pitt in Bullet Train. Ahead of what?s sure to be another whirlwind year, the 33-year-old U.K. native sat down with W to discuss his eye-opening experience with Pitt, what he?s seeking in his next role, and being awestruck by the Netflix series Ozark. (?I haven?t been blown away by actors like that for a long time,? he says.)

Congratulations on Bullet Train. You?ve said in the past that growing up, Brad Pitt was a huge influence for you. What was it like to work with him?

In person, he was such a cool guy, such a lovely person, a genuine, honest actor. He would never stop thinking. I?m like that, too. Once I?m on set, I don?t talk to anyone. I?m just thinking, thinking, thinking, going over it in my head until it?s ready. I saw him doing that and said, Okay, I?m not crazy. It was surreal because I just never put me and him in the same stratosphere.

Did he have any on-set advice or tips, or did you have conversations with him that stuck with you?

We talked about craft a little bit, and we talked about the industry. I told him I?m on my guard with Hollywood, just because there are a lot of dodgy things going on. He said, ?Don?t worry about other people around you, just keep doing you and then the good people will win out in the end, eventually.?

I?ve got a funny story: We had to change a scene up that was originally four or five different scenes; we pushed it all into one because we were running low on time. We?ve done the scene, we?ve blocked it out, we filmed most of it. And then we?re doing my [camera] coverage. And I?m expecting, because I?ve heard that certain big stars, once it?s on the other actor?s coverage, they?re nowhere to be seen, but Brad was there every single take just giving it his all, over and over again. He was even trying to make me laugh. He didn?t need to be there, he could have pulled the Hollywood card and said, ?I?m too busy, got other stuff to do.? It just made everything so much better, and it was hilarious. They say never meet your heroes, but on this occasion, he was alright.

You?re best known for your role on the show Warrior?a part that you?ve mentioned in previous interviews as exhausting and extremely taxing, physically speaking. How does that translate to your mental health on set?

I?ve got a good support network. It?s a very tight-knit cast and crew?we?re more like a family, really. It?s tough because it?s 10 hours of TV, an action scene each episode, and a lot of topless stuff; I think if there was less topless stuff, it?d probably be easier because I could just hide. Instead, I?ve gotta maintain around seven percent body fat. All of it can be mentally taxing, but my experience is similar to Matthew McConaughey when he lost weight for Dallas Buyers Club. He said in some of his interviews he felt this extreme feeling of focus that he never felt before. And I can say the same thing happened for Warrior.

Shooting scenes without a shirt is certainly part of Bruce Lee?s legend?but more importantly, I find it fascinating that he made it his life?s work to buck myths about Asian men.

Bruce definitely had that on his mind. I think Bruce was and still is this force of nature?I always call him the Mozart of martial arts?and he was a philosopher as well. There are just some brilliant minds and energies that will achieve greatness, whatever circumstance they?re in. I do think he was probably so brilliant and excelled so much that?despite his Asian heritage?along the way, that?s when he started encountering other people?s perceptions and discrimination. But the thing that I take away from Bruce the most is that he never became bitter. He was just so Zen about it. You know that black and white interview with Piers Morgan? He says under the sky we?re all humans. I?m paraphrasing that, but the way he talks about it, there?s no bitterness or remorse, it?s just a current state of society that he?s very aware of. I think that?s the most beautiful element of it. That is the key to positive change?not coming from a place of hatred or bitterness.

Koji in ?Warrior.? David Bloomer/Cinemax.

Lee talked at length about Warrior in that interview with Piers Morgan. Do you remember anything he said that stuck with you in particular?

A Chinese main lead in a TV show hadn?t been done before in America [at that time]. He just said, ?I can understand why these producers are scared, because it hasn?t been done before.? I remember asking Shannon Lee, ?What was it like for him when he encountered these obstacles?? Shannon said it would affect him for a little bit, just a little bit, but he?d get up and move and keep going on to the next one. Whereas someone like me, I?d be beating myself up for six months, you know? I would be questioning my whole identity.

Like you, Bruce Lee was of mixed descent. What was your experience growing up half-Japanese, half-English?

My origin story: In England, growing up 33 years ago, it was a less diverse place. I definitely experienced racism, bullying, and felt like the odd one out. It was fascinating: When I was getting into the industry was when I started to realize, I?m going up for all these very Asian roles or I?m in the audition room with fully Asian people. You definitely feel like you wonder where you belong. I never felt like I was English because I was treated differently. And then I moved to Japan and lived there for two years and the same thing happened. I thought maybe Japan would be a home for me, that it might be where I belong. I went there and I was treated differently too.

Why did you choose to portray Ozark? Was it the show that got you through quarantine?

I first started watching the show just before I flew to L.A. to film Bullet Train, about a year ago. I got obsessed with that series and binge-watched it. Ozark stood out because it took its time?the pace was human. I?m not very good at watching TV?once you get into the industry and you see how things are made, it just kind of ruins things. But Ozark?the performances were so beautiful and the time they took to develop it was captivating. I remember timing things out, just going, wow, they?ve done 20 to 30 seconds of just a shot of Julia Garner?s character sleeping. A big blockbuster Hollywood film, of course, has such a faster rhythm and pace. You never get that. Ozark is real actors acting, and pure collaboration. You can feel it.

The work that you do is so different from that of the tone and subject matter on Ozark, but I?m wondering if you, while watching Ozark, made any connections with any of the work that you have done or any of the characters that you?ve portrayed.

Ozark was more a reminder that there is work out there that is inspiring to me. I?m grateful to be working as an actor on these films that I?ve just done. But it?s not the end goal. Seeing work like Ozark reminded me of the level and the quality of what I would want for myself as an actor. It?s funny, we love certain aspects of the craft, and then slowly, as we study it and dissect it, we lose a bit of that. And then hopefully one day it?ll come back and you can get lost again and immerse yourself again.

Was there a particular scene or moment from the show that you especially loved?

One scene stuck in my head in particular: Jacob Snell?s character is talking to Darlene and it?s toward the end of his arc. He?s just in bed talking to her, but he never gets up. Most people would probably get up, start shouting, trying to look tough, but he?s just so still. And I remember Tom Pelphrey in particular, when he came to season 3, that?s one I kept going over and over. It was so refreshing for me because like I said before, the last couple of years, I?ve been kind of numb when I watch films and TV. But I got completely engrossed in and immersed in Ozark. I was like, that?s the bar, that?s what I want to go for. It felt the same way when I used to watch Philip Seymour Hoffman or Heath Ledger, Daniel Day-Lewis or Marlon Brando back in the day. That?s what Ozark did for me. It rejuvenated my love for acting and the craft. I remember being a younger actor, watching Heath Ledger?s stuff and being blown away by some guy who?s got this amazing energy, but he?s done the work and there?s some depth there, some honesty, he?s channeling something personal. Ozark was like that.

Are there any particular performances or movies of Heath Ledger?s that you enjoy most?

I can reel off most of his films: Candy, an Australian film about two heroin addicts; I loved his performance in Brokeback Mountain, obviously; The Dark Knight. I really like I?m Not There. I think maybe I can relate to him as well. He?s an introverted and rebellious guy. People wanted to put Heath Ledger in a box. And I?m doing my own thing. I?ve got my own thing. He was a real artist as well. I don?t know if I?m that, but I?m trying to be.

He says under the sky we?re all humans. I?m paraphrasing that, but the way he talks about it, there?s no bitterness or remorse, it?s just a current state of society that he?s very aware of. I think that?s the most beautiful element of it. That is the key to positive change?not coming from a place of hatred or bitterness.

Koji in ?Warrior.? David Bloomer/Cinemax.

Lee talked at length about Warrior in that interview with Piers Morgan. Do you remember anything he said that stuck with you in particular?

A Chinese main lead in a TV show hadn?t been done before in America [at that time]. He just said, ?I can understand why these producers are scared, because it hasn?t been done before.? I remember asking Shannon Lee, ?What was it like for him when he encountered these obstacles?? Shannon said it would affect him for a little bit, just a little bit, but he?d get up and move and keep going on to the next one. Whereas someone like me, I?d be beating myself up for six months, you know? I would be questioning my whole identity.

Like you, Bruce Lee was of mixed descent. What was your experience growing up half-Japanese, half-English?

My origin story: In England, growing up 33 years ago, it was a less diverse place. I definitely experienced racism, bullying, and felt like the odd one out. It was fascinating: When I was getting into the industry was when I started to realize, I?m going up for all these very Asian roles or I?m in the audition room with fully Asian people. You definitely feel like you wonder where you belong. I never felt like I was English because I was treated differently. And then I moved to Japan and lived there for two years and the same thing happened. I thought maybe Japan would be a home for me, that it might be where I belong. I went there and I was treated differently too.

Why did you choose to portray Ozark? Was it the show that got you through quarantine?

I first started watching the show just before I flew to L.A. to film Bullet Train, about a year ago. I got obsessed with that series and binge-watched it. Ozark stood out because it took its time?the pace was human. I?m not very good at watching TV?once you get into the industry and you see how things are made, it just kind of ruins things. But Ozark?the performances were so beautiful and the time they took to develop it was captivating. I remember timing things out, just going, wow, they?ve done 20 to 30 seconds of just a shot of Julia Garner?s character sleeping. A big blockbuster Hollywood film, of course, has such a faster rhythm and pace. You never get that. Ozark is real actors acting, and pure collaboration. You can feel it.

The work that you do is so different from that of the tone and subject matter on Ozark, but I?m wondering if you, while watching Ozark, made any connections with any of the work that you have done or any of the characters that you?ve portrayed.

Ozark was more a reminder that there is work out there that is inspiring to me. I?m grateful to be working as an actor on these films that I?ve just done. But it?s not the end goal. Seeing work like Ozark reminded me of the level and the quality of what I would want for myself as an actor. It?s funny, we love certain aspects of the craft, and then slowly, as we study it and dissect it, we lose a bit of that. And then hopefully one day it?ll come back and you can get lost again and immerse yourself again.

Was there a particular scene or moment from the show that you especially loved?

One scene stuck in my head in particular: Jacob Snell?s character is talking to Darlene and it?s toward the end of his arc. He?s just in bed talking to her, but he never gets up. Most people would probably get up, start shouting, trying to look tough, but he?s just so still. And I remember Tom Pelphrey in particular, when he came to season 3, that?s one I kept going over and over. It was so refreshing for me because like I said before, the last couple of years, I?ve been kind of numb when I watch films and TV. But I got completely engrossed in and immersed in Ozark. I was like, that?s the bar, that?s what I want to go for. It felt the same way when I used to watch Philip Seymour Hoffman or Heath Ledger, Daniel Day-Lewis or Marlon Brando back in the day. That?s what Ozark did for me. It rejuvenated my love for acting and the craft. I remember being a younger actor, watching Heath Ledger?s stuff and being blown away by some guy who?s got this amazing energy, but he?s done the work and there?s some depth there, some honesty, he?s channeling something personal. Ozark was like that.

Are there any particular performances or movies of Heath Ledger?s that you enjoy most?

I can reel off most of his films: Candy, an Australian film about two heroin addicts; I loved his performance in Brokeback Mountain, obviously; The Dark Knight. I really like I?m Not There. I think maybe I can relate to him as well. He?s an introverted and rebellious guy. People wanted to put Heath Ledger in a box. And I?m doing my own thing. I?ve got my own thing. He was a real artist as well. I don?t know if I?m that, but I?m trying to be.
