Martin Sheen's Comments...
Sunday Herald Advertiser, November 25, 1973
Sheen measured this role in terms of his craft.
"I find a role more difficult when I pull a trigger and shoot someone's head off," said Sheen, a frequent guest star this television season in action drama. "I fear people believe it."
"But when a writer comes along with a good script like this one, I have absolutely no problem at all. It's not hard for me to interpret what a good writer writes; it's what they write that is difficult. I wish I could write like that.
"Having been raised a Catholic, however, I do not believe Catholicism will ever change to the religion depicted in this fable of the future. It can never come to a point where the Mass is considered merely a pious ritual."
Next role: Message to My Daughter
