Personal Quote:

To pursue a career in Hollywood you have to have a personality bypass. Look at the top 20 stars in the world - there's probably only two actors among them. Hollywood's not about you as an actor.

Trivia:

He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1999 New Years Honours List for his services to drama. See more »
