Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

"I moved to England to escape theatrical stereotypes....Personally, I've enjoyed the change. It's a cultural thing. Here, people don't think "Rimbaud" is a Sylvester Stallone character, or that matricide is when you kill yourself in bed...and I got tired of a culture where a John Travolta can be considered a real actor, never mind some kind of a ... sex symbol! England to me is more real".

Trivia:

Was part of the original cast of the "Fantasticks", the world's longest running musical. See more »
