Personal Quote:

[on making movies in Canada] I'm not chasing a brass ring anymore. I'm not trying to be a movie star. I'm so happy with the life I have right now, and part of that is being up here. So it just comes down to I want to make movies at home. I prefer spending time here than in any other country in the world. See more »
