“Having a son has made me change my pass times to live more sustainably. It’s all about him now.”

“I got dengue fever in Indonesia and was hospitalized for a week. I lost 25 lbs and I remember thinking ‘is this it?’ And I couldn’t even get up. As a father to a young son that’s the worst.”

“I think in the end it chose me. I’ve always been creative and artistic, but never Thespian. My actor friends hate when I call myself the reluctant actor, but that really is what I am. I was reluctant to start, and bad at it, I think I still am, but I have a very Buddhist approach to it and it seems to work. I’ve lost a lot of things that are important to me in my 33 years, so as long as you leave your best in the room, who cares if I lose the role or the job. I never had it in the first place and there’s always another job.”
