Personal Quotes (2)

When my mother was 5 months pregnant with me, she was hit by a car, flew 13 meters through the air, and doctors told her: The child - forget it. The main reason I survived was my mother's discipline, as she did not take painkillers despite her serious injuries. I cannot imagine these six months not having influenced my personality. I was rescued before I was even born.
[asked about his background in voice acting] No, unfortunately I haven't [ever dubbed an adult movie]. I would have found that funny. I would have had fun doing this.
