Personal Quote:

What I find interesting about a character like The Swede [in 'Hell on Wheels'] is that the menace is there because we assume he is capable of anything. Do we actually see him do anything? Rarely. But the more humane I play these characters, the more kind, the more generous, the more menacing they seem.

Trivia:

Performed at Canada's Stratford Festival in 1989 and 1990 See more »
