Personal Quotes (4)

I don't really say much in the film. Mostly I watched light saber battle scenes and did grunts and growls while George Lucas watched from the couch, I got a bit carried away and pretended I had a light saber -- I was waving my arms about. On recording the voice of Darth Maul
I had to come up with a scary voice which could be attributed to a younger villain. Basically I used my own voice with a kind of Marlboro huskiness thrown in. On recording the voice of Darth Maul
I was trying to exude this coolness, but I kept tripping over things - inside I was nearly having a heart attack...I did my impression of Darth Vader for [George Lucas] and he laughed. On recording the voice of Darth Maul
Infinity fascinates me no end.
