Personal Quote:

I started Home Improvement (1991) when I was 7 and the show ended when I was 16. I never had the chance to decide what I wanted to do with my life. When I was 16, I knew that I didn't want to act anymore." Interview, 2001.


Named for the main character in Lloyd Alexander's "Chronicles of Prydain" series of novels for young adults. See more »
