Personal Quotes (1)

[on performing with Darren Shahlavi in Survival Code (2013), later titled 'Survival Code'] Our last day of shooting ended on a seven-hour cage fight scene - seven hours, two fighters. When you're shooting a big scene like that you can't let your body cool down or it will shut down. So I would skip, do pushups, Jumping jacks, poomses - a taekwondo pattern - between takes to keep my body warm. I literally felt like I had been savagely beaten. The fight is epic.
