Film Courage: Do you ever fear writing a boring story?
Larry Wilson: No…No. You mean fear how?
Film Courage: Define fear?
Larry Wilson: Define fear for me.
Film Courage: I think…I think for some people they’re okay with not being perfect. But I think for others this is their whole sort of persona. Maybe they’ve been told this all of their life [i.e., “you’re our star”], maybe it’s a class thing, I don’t know? But that’s their element. That is who they are. They live in that world of “I do everything right!” So then they don’t want to attempt anything which may make them appear ‘wrong.’ But then if you’re willing to be free and make mistakes, then boring doesn’t really enter the picture?
Larry Wilson: Yes. And that is it, I’m not afraid of being boring because I will jump off of creative cliffs and sometimes I’ll land really hard and break my neck. And sometimes I’ll land exactly where I need to land. But boring isn’t an issue for me and it’s interesting because I’ve been at this a long time now and I feel more unboring than ever!
