The Mummy Returns (2001)$1,000,000


1There was a whole raft of really bad British science fiction. I mean like the old Doctor Who (1963), with the Daleks and all that. I never kind of got into that.
2Higher education must lead the march back to the fundamentals of human relationships, to the old discovery that is ever new, that man does not live by bread alone.
3The greatest ability in business is to get along with others and influence their actions. A chip on the shoulder is too heavy a piece of baggage to carry through life.


11995: Awarded Best Actor at the Stockholm Film Festival for Madagascar Skin (1995)
2Was a former apprentice electrician.
3Studied for three years at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow.
