Personal Quote:

[In a November 1989 interview] I've been able to slip in and out of pictures and characters. I haven't been so pigeonholed that I couldn't move or do different things. I've also had the longevity I've always wanted. From the beginning I've thought the key to this games is to be in it for life. If that's what you want to do - to go from picture to picture, to keep working. So far, so good. See more »
