Personal Quote:

Growing up in a displaced persons camps after World War II, I saw my first play, a fairy tale, done in the camps. It showed a better life than I was living in, it was magical and I said to myself then and there, that's what I want to do ... My favorite role is the one I'm currently working on, whatever it may be.
