Personal Quote:

I have my doubts all the time about what I'm doing. I've always had them. It's a lonely place to be, on one side of the fence, with the rest of the world on the other side. But it's where I have to stay.

Trivia:

René was the model for the Sasquatch hunter in the movie Harry and the Hendersons (1987).
