Personal Quote:

[on the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling] I went off and read the books after the audition and I read all four books in one sitting - you know - didn't wash, didn't eat, drove around with them on the steering wheel like a lunatic. I suddenly understood why my friends, who I'd thought where slightly backward, had been so addicted to these children's books. They're like crack. See more »

Is an avid comic-book fan and possessed an enormous collection of Marvel and DC titles as a child. See more »
