Personal Quotes (2)

'Jaws' was and still is an incredible, monumental film. Not just for its time, but even today it really stands out.. That film changed everything fo4 all of us. I was afraid to swim in the ocean for years after watching that. And growing up in Vancouver, I lived on the ocean.
[on 'Beverly Hills 90210'] I knew working on that show was going to be a great opportunity for me to learn as much as I could from Aaron Spelling. I thought I would be able to talk him into letting me direct an episode and - lo and behold! - he did. And now, looking back, I can't figure out for the life of me what the old man was thinking, turning the show over to a 23-year-old kid. But I'm very thankful that he did because he gave me one episode in the third season. The fourth season he gave me two; the fifth season he gave me three; and in the sixth he gave me five. He just kept giving me more episodes and I just kept shooting them. And that sort of ambition led me here.
