Personal Quotes (11)

I've been acting for almost 15 years now. At times it feels like forever and at others it feels like it's flown by. Life's like that though isn't it?
My favorite place on the planet is Australia! I love it there and feel like I was born to live there. I've visited a lot of places but never felt the connection I feel to the land, the people and the values that I do when I'm in Oz.
I'm not sure what actually inspired me to become an actor but the desire to express myself is high on the list. I love the intimacy of film and the ability is has to really see into the eyes and the soul if you will. I hope to do work in the future that really makes people think about important issues in their lives and the lives of others.
I really love reading all sorts of things, fiddling around on my guitar, watching movies and trying to keep fit. My dog Rory lives in Toronto here and we like to hang out together and go for walks. Not very exciting am I?
I believe my strongest area of contribution would be my adaptability. I'm pretty good at fitting in with diverse groups of people and I learn new tasks pretty quickly. I'm a solid team player.
I really like the fact that [Veronica and Malone] seem to be becoming very close friends. I think there's a nice area to be explored there. Every male-female relationship doesn't have to be a potential flirt or full-on relationship.
Lost World allowed me to sharpen my skills as an actor - which I'm still doing to this day - as well as do physical stunts... I also got to work with a fantastic group of people, in what is paradise on Earth, the Gold Coast of Australia.
As flaky as it sounds, what made me want to act is the desire to communicate and make people think about important issues in their lives.
I guess I'd want people to remember me as a good friend, husband and father. I would hope that my contributions as a member of the human family would be looked upon as more important than the films I did or the money I made.
I like that I'm in a creative field and that you never know what's around the corner. If you have some faith, it can be an exciting way to live.
I'd like to work toward both producing and directing. Directing really interests me as it does many actors. That's for the future. For now I'm an actor.
