Personal Quote:

The thing that is most notably different about working in the US is that if you are embraced then you are completely accepted. It was quite giddy because you'd be there and Meryl Streep would come on the phone and you'd think it was your mother pretending to be Meryl Streep or maybe your sister, but it was really Meryl Streep.

Trivia:

His favourite piece of music was the aria 'Mache dich, mein Herze, rein' from the St Matthew Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach. It features in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) in the scene when Ripley sets out from New York to travel to Italy. See more »
