Personal Quote:

I just like doing different things. I get very impatient and very bored easily and I'm always curious to try other things. If I had an ambition in life it would be to know everything, but I guess that's a bit unrealistic. But as long as I can breathe, I hope I will continue to try and do different things. It's about not being afraid to fail. Of course I care about that but you've still got to try... See more »

Trivia:

Spent six months in a seminary studying the young priests in action as research for the Father Ted (1995) role Father Dougal McGuire. Said, "About 90% of the priests in the seminary were a bit like Dougal." See more »
