Personal Quote:

[When he was playing the role of an angry man]: He's tired of the aristocratic oppressive rulers of England, he wants to get out and make a new world for himself. He's very interested in change and progress - he hates the suffocating feeling that heritage and ritual imposes on him. He's also very idealistic and very determined in what he wants. He's a believer and he'll follow through to the end.... See more »
