Personal Quotes (2)

I never thought of being an actor. I was far too shy, too insecure.
On having the same name as television's No. 1 "Survivor": We forget there are other people with our name, and somehow we feel an ownership with our name. Honestly, this is one of the strangest experiences that's ever happened in my life, and I'm having to deal with it.
