Byrne: Available For Films Anywhere

Irish actor GABRIEL BYRNE is prepared to make movies anywhere at anytime, because being a European actor makes it harder to find work. THE USUAL SUSPECTS star, 56, has recently filmed movies in Australia and Africa, because he's aware there aren't always opportunities for non-American actors in Hollywood. Byrne says, "Being a European actor in America is an uphill struggle unless you manage to get into a gigantic hit which wipes out any ethnic difference and you become the thing that they value the most, which is box office bankability. "Being a European actor of a particular age without a huge box office hit, I try to work with interesting directors. It doesn't matter to me whether it is Croatia or Iceland, if I think the director is trying to say something important, I will do it."
