Personal Quote:

Theater really is my first love. I love the stage, performing for an audience. Some of my favorite credits would have to be the Shakespeare work I did in New York and "To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday". I also loved working with Jim Henson on The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984) and Labyrinth (1986). I've also loved Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). (1994) See more »
