Personal Quotes (2)
My drama teacher at school just took the mickey out of me. He was always making snidey little comments, trying to put me down. I tried to get into drama school but he refused to give me any help. He said I'd never make it. He helped one of the other lads on the way, but just told me I wasn't good enough and laughed. I don't know what he had against me, but it was quite upsetting at the time. I've proved him wrong though, haven't I?
I would love to play a down and dirty rockstar! Along the lines of Midnight Mark but with all the bad stuff thrown in! Something darker than I have done before but still with the leather trousers. I also loved the physical aspect of 300 and would love to do more fighting. I thoroughly enjoyed killing people. (On what role he would like in the future)
