Personal Quotes (8)

When you say no a lot as an actor, you are going to go broke.
One of the greatest responsibilities as an artist is to create some kind of healing within your work.
[about his co-star Anthony LaPaglia in Below (2019)] I remember watching him as a kid in a TV movie called Frank Nitti: The Enforcer back in 1988 and you couldn't take your eyes off him - such a formidable screen persona.
There is a real market for stories with a diverse tapestry of color, race, gender, class. We need more of them, both here and abroad.
My hope is that Safe Harbour will enjoy the success that Ali's Wedding has received and I have no doubt it will. There was such a great vibe on both sets, a lot of love went into making both productions and my feeling is that will translate to an audience.
Covid-19 has really battered our industry and many industries all over the world. I'm looking forward to working on Trail Blazers in late October, dusting off the acting cobwebs once the restrictions of this pandemic have been eased.
I realised that we need to be more than just a part of this diversity discussion, we need to be actively involved, and literally creating change. And certainly not to meet some predetermined quota.
I wanted to challenge all that mythologising about who can carry a show or who can lead a film or who can play which role and why.
