"I realized that the sum total of my life added up to this: my rough upbringing, because when they said 'Action!', I had plenty; and the analytical focus and determination of legal study – you need all of that to be an actor." - from The Guardian, May 12, 2012
"I’m just getting started and and my full repertoire and range as an actor has not been shown. It’s unknown, which is why took the risk of doing 'Annie.' People haven’t seen me in a comedic setting but that’s who I really am. So I think that as you do good work more roles will present themselves. I’m not frustrated at all. The offers are coming in and I’m not having to audition. How can I complain? But definitely, I’m looking to play the love interest, something a bit sexier and also dramatic. Something I can really get my teeth into, and go back to real acting. I’m definitely gunning for a leading man role. I think it’s about time." - from www.indiewire.com, February 21, 2014
"I'm very much the type of actor that once I embody the character, I could stay in it from the beginning to the end." - from www.complex.com, August 2, 2016
