Robert Guillaume Interview Transcribed

There are few actors today who are both highly respected artists of the craft and self-deprecating to the point of arguing with you about their merits. However, Robert Guillaume is one of those people. As he put it:

“I must say that I never thought of myself as much of an actor. I had apparently gained some credibility in sitcom circles, largely as a result of getting a good role like Benson. I never had to prove much beyond that. I sort of went strictly on instinct and intuition. I enjoyed keeping my character and his responses to everything. I enjoyed trying to keep it without technique if you will; of course everything you do becomes a technique.”
