Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1I have been sent three or four scripts for television series, but there wasn't anything I really wanted to do. I want to tell a good story, whether it's a TV show, a movie, whatever. That's really my No. 1 criteria.
2There's certainly pressure to find your audience early. You need to paint the picture, but it's tough trying to find the balance between a show that people can tune in on any given week while still grabbing the people who are there every week.
3J.J. Abrams is definitely a guy that when he calls, you want to answer. He's incredibly focused. When he was shooting the pilot on 'Lost,' we'd do a take and he'd go back to his tent and be working on the first episodes of 'Lost' as well as the cliffhanger for the eighth season of 'Alias.' He's an incredible multitasker.
4People don't really want to know what happens. They ask you for just a second, but then they don't want to know.
5I just enjoy the ride while I have it.
6You can get fired from any job at any time.
7I'm perfectly happy doing nothing. I'll hang around the house and take the dog to the park.
8That's always a cool thing to be the voice of what the eyes are seeing. It gives you the role of the Greek chorus and that's always fun to do.
9I have gotten used to working in the dark and I dig it.
10I definitely try to mix humor into anything I do, even if it is into a drama.
11Life is very nice in Hawaii. I rent a place that has its own cottage so when my friends and family come to visit, they have somewhere nice to stay.
12I used to work at this store called Music Plus in San Clemente, California, when I was growing up, and then they became Blockbuster Music, and, like, you had to get a haircut to work there, and at the time I had some pretty long hair. So after that policy was imposed, I knew that was going to be my last summer working there.
13Mixing humor and harsh reality is a very human behavior, it's the way people stay sane in their daily lives.
14Bad people are intriguing!
