Personal Quote:

[on 'The Eye of the Storm'] What I love about Patrick White's writing is that he understands that we are all actors. We don't do it as consciously as he would have us believe. But I wanted you to see the surface person of who these people are, and then explore the cracks. Because it's the cracks that make us who we are. See more »
