Personal Quote:

"Remember, follow your heart, and you'll be fine. Follow your dream; it's the key to everything." - David in The Bride (1985). See more »

Trivia:

Nearly died whilst filming The Bride (1985), when the circus tent caught fire and David was left suspended by a rope in the 'Big Top'. The Special Effects man, who was outside the tent, couldn't hear all the shouting and kept David high in the air as the tent was burning around him. Finally he was let down. The large tent only took four minutes to be completely destroyed. See more »
