Personal Quotes (1)

[on his character in Evil (2003)] Well, let's say we all have the tendencies of everyone inside of us, you know. There's an embryo of these emotions. They're not really suppressed because if you suppressed them that's when they will become an issue. With that character, I really tried to focus on his own insecurity and his need to suppress other people.
