Personal Quote:

Acting is a child's game. I don't mean it's childish, I mean it's a child's game. We more or less perpetuate our youth through acting. We're always acting, we're playing parts; we don't want to face the reality of being ourselves. We're the happiest when we're acting. I think any actor would say that.


Was a great admirer of Orson Welles and Sydney Greenstreet. See more »
