"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
