THE GUARDIAN – The Star Wars star ‘proceeded to pretty much smooch the heck out of my face,’ Slater says, after he won a Golden Globe for acclaimed TV show Mr Robot
Christian Slater addressed his troubled past and recent career resurgence in the Golden Globe-winning show Mr Robot, during the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, California, on Thursday.
“Strike and struggle precede success, even in the dictionary,” said the actor, who won for best actor in a supporting role in a series at Sunday’s ceremony, while the show netted the award for best television series (drama).
“I love going to work, I love this business,” he added. “You just keep going, keep striving and struggling and saying yes, even though you might be a little afraid. I’m just grateful I said yes [to Mr Robot] basically. It’s an unpredictable ride and certainly one I’m grateful to be on.”
Of his Golden Globe night, Slater said his most memorable moment was running into Harrison Ford at an after-party, where the Star Wars star “proceeded to pretty much smooch the heck out of my face”. Said Slater: “I was like: the night’s not gonna get much better than that, so I can go home now.”
