Personal Quote:

I learned years ago, I adore acting and I think it's the most alive I know how to be -- almost -- but I really want a good life. I've been married for 17 years -- I know, they call us the last couple. I have a 13-year-old daughter. I have a lovely home life with good friends who aren't in the business... and I have no desire to cost my whole life in pursuit of the career alone. See more »
