Personal Quote:

Bad movies are a real education because you say "look at that, what was that close up, those two shots don't match! That performance was so bad, why did that guy do that? I would never do that!" And so in a sense while you're watching something that's really awful, you're playing along and reviewing it and saying "No, I wouldn't have done it that way, this way's much better".


Shortly after Lexx ended, he was mugged and brutally beaten at an ATM machine. On his website, he has written about the long and difficult recovery, that kept him from acting for some time. See more »
