Personal Quote:

I had three prime time series and you tell someone to watch it and he's available to see it. He's at home with his family. Daytime is different. There's really no gratification doing a job when so many of your peers don't see it...So the gratification comes from the actor himself. He either enjoys the part, or it becomes a very difficult medium to act in. See more »
