Samuel L. Jackson stopped by Good Morning America earlier this week to talk about Captain America: The Winter Soldier – which is terrific, by the way – and he told Robin Roberts that for the first Cap film, he had trouble learning his lines.
“I sat at home and I did all my studying, and when I got to work the next day, I was having difficulty seeing all the lines,” he said. “I could only visualize half the page. I realized that, when I cut my eye off with the patch, I cut off half my sensory perception for learning.”
What did he do to solve the problem? “So now, when I learn lines as Nick Fury, I learn them with one hand covering one eye so that I can visualize the whole page.”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in theaters now and you must see it.
