  • I love the adventure that comes with this work, the travel and all that. But also the craft, the storytelling. From a kid, I remember enjoying certain books and getting swept away in movies.
  • Everything shifted for me after Rush (2013). It wasn't as financially successful as other things I'd done, but it gave me more movement, more options, more doors opening, more meetings. All of a sudden, it's "Oh, wow! You're an actor!".
  • I remember how differently people treated me when things went well. Some directors and producers who never gave a shit at best, they would have given me a sideways glance. Next time I saw them, they're my best friend. That's gross.
