Look, I say taking him aside. I don’t like my character swearing. Can you tone it down a bit?
Tone it down? I’m the ^%$##@ devil, for Christ’s sake. It’s my prerogative.
Not on my watch, it isn’t. Hey, is that a glass of water you just threw over me?
Someone’s getting a bit heated. Someone needs to cool down.
Looks like we’re being asked to leave, I say. I haven’t finished yet.
( we exit, letting him go first]
You’re very red in the face, I say.
I’m the 8&^^*devil, he says.What do you expect me to be? Pasty-faced as you?
Okay, okay, I say. Couldn’t you stay on script?
Ever heard of ad libbing? he says. Adding a bit of swagger?
Stick to the script, I say as a pretty woman passes by. I turn to look.
Hey, did you just push me to the ground?
It’s better than me knocking your block off. Now where were we?
