Ethan Hawke says he’s an old actor, but he’s still a young writer.

Broadway Profiles host Tamsen Fadal spoke to stage and movie star Hawke about his new novel, “A Bright Ray of Darkness” and his role in Showtime’s “The Good Lord Bird”.

The book, which came out in February, tells the story of a young man who made his Broadway debut in “Henry IV” as his marriage imploded, “The healing power of performance is something that has had a incredible meaning in my life There aren’t many books in the library that are fiction and a firsthand account of what it means on a more substantial level to devote your life to performance.

Hawke also opened up about his role in “The Good Lord Bird,” a miniseries based on the novel of the same name by James McBride, starring him as abolitionist John Brown.

Hawke also starred in “The New Group”, a virtual presentation of Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting For Godot”.

“I never even imagined Broadway could be dark for a year. If you had told me that two more years ago, I would have said to myself, “What are you talking about? he said. “My wife and I… we had to build our decor [for Waiting for Godot]. Ours, [creating the production] I wanted to fight for the theater.
