“I’m very opinionated, and when you’re put in a position where you’re getting the storylines that are not necessarily what’s cranking at the back of your mind, or digging at the potential of your character and you have to sit on your hands, that’s frustrating.”
“I find the trick to playing a villain is that you can’t be bad for the sake of being bad. It has to be rooted in some sort of heartbreak.”
“I can’t say that I have ever been fanatical about a show. To be honest, I’m not a big TV watcher. When I do watch TV, I watch the news.”
“I think that if Hollywood has a problem, it constantly underestimates the intelligence and integrity of fans.”

There was a period of cinema in the mid-’90s that I was a huge fan of, with ‘Heat’ and ‘Seven’ and the Tarantino era. If I’ve ever been fanatical, it was about those films, back in the day.”
