1The guy I read and I love is Irvin Yalom.
2My favorite part of any project is the preparation. It's where you get to meet the people, the experts.
3In terms of publicity and interviews, well, it's really hard in this modern world to keep a sense of mystery.
4You need mystery. You actually do. I think that's what foreign women, French women in particular, are good at. There's still a sense that you need to keep some of the unknown because that's where the soul resides, or something.
5As an actor, the first thing you learn in drama school is you never judge.
6I am sick of living out of a suitcase.
7I can't complain about the roles that have come my way.
8I do want to have holidays and see my family and friends.

3Started acting in his mid-twenties.

5Although born and raised in Australia, he has never played an Aussie in an American production, thanks to his ability to speak flawlessly in American dialects.
