Personal Quote:

"I think it's fun, but it really is a job. In 'D.A.R.Y.L.' there was a part where I had to freeze to death and they didn't even use it. It can get kind of frustrating. But I don't regret that I decided to become an actor. Besides, if I don't like it at any time, I can stop." (from a 1985 "Starlog" interview) See more »
