1I had to work very hard to break into this business and now there's even more work to be done. Fortunately, I've got a team of people to help me. I can concentrate on being a better actor. That's my number one priority. I'm fairly confident about what I do and I'm just doing the best I can.
2I feel it is a great fortune to have some passion in life and an urgency in direction; it makes our whole being so much fuller.
3One of my strongest traits is confidence; at times I'm amazed at my confidence, even when it doesn't make sense that I should be.
