Bonus Trivia

.

"Doing television is different from theater because everything has to be done so quickly. You often don't have time to get the best quality. And there's a new director for each show, so there's no continuity in that position. Also, TV directors don't have the power of theatrical directors and don't give as much direction, which I miss. I just have this stage perspective, which is hard to put aside. After a year of doing this show, I'd like to get some movie roles, but I'll really be itching to do a play. Theater is in my blood." – Kingston quoted in USA Today, Oct. 2, 1997

.

On leaving "ER": "The show seems to be taking a different tone. I understand it needs to keep reinventing itself to keep going and apparently I, according to the producers and the writers, am part of the old fogeys who are no longer interesting." The Telegraph Jun 8, 2004.
