GQ: Do you think villains are born bad, or do you think they become bad?
Ron Perlman: I like to believe that everyone is born with the same skill set, and that it is the influences that one comes upon. What he hungers for is definitely going to be affected by what he got or didn’t get in those years when he was forming his psyche and his values. So I think villains are made. The more I can see what it was that made them the way they are, the more interesting it is for me to play one and perhaps for the audience to witness one.
