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.


Was accepted to USC's Film School, but dropped out shortly after beginning classes. See more »
