Personal Quote:

[on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995)] The script developed as we were making it, and at one point the producer Suzanne Todd would be sitting in the corner on set, writing the script on her laptop.

Trivia:

His first stage role in America was as Prospero in the American Repertory Theatre's production of The Tempest. See more »
