Biography

"I enjoy playing characters where the silence is loud." - Gary Oldman

"It has been said that an actor must have the hide of a rhinoceros, the courage and audacity of a lion, and most importantly, the fragile vulnerability of an egg. It also has been... said, and I'm not sure by whom, that the moment of not knowing is the moment that has the greatest potential for creativity." - Robert Prosky
