Personal Quote:

The older I get, the more of a recluse I turn into. I love the social aspect of my work. It's like a commune and gets very intense and very sociable. Then when I am not working, I shut myself away, so I can see myself living up a mountain. See more »


He was awarded the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 2001 (2000 season) for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in "All My Sons", at the Royal National Theatre, Cottesloe. See more »
