Some Personal Quotes

  • I’m probably my biggest critic. I worry that if you spend any quality time reveling in good things then karma will slap you upside the head, so I try to stay as even keel as I’m able.

  • I think things through a lot, so I probably use my head more than my heart. That probably comes through in my acting.

  • I am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man, living life to the fullest.
