Personal Quote:

Obviously one's experiences inform one's acting. I think the more experience you have of life, the better it is for an actor. In terms of the parts I played, I think my face had more to do with it. Clearly I wasn't ever going to play romantic leads.

Trivia:

Has appeared in three different film versions of The Crucible as a different character each time. See more »
