Personal Quotes (4)

"Never give-up".
Acting is like baseball in many ways. While many in Hollywood are focusing on the next 'big home run', I just try getting on base. Then I am happy!
Everything I do revolves around me being Irish. I can't escape that. No matter what country I go to or live in, it is always there. Going back to Ireland and seeing family and friends always reinforces that.
A powerful mindset is what separates people. When I came to Los Angeles, I was so sold out for acting that if I were to lose everything and end up living in my car, I would still keep acting and get my way out. That is my commitment every day.
