Personal Quote:

Acting can be a very reactive profession. Acting is a fantastic thing, and it's my life, but writing is also part of me too, so I did it and in so doing took responsibility for my own life. And it was very directly and specifically because of "Beyond Glory" that Jim Cameron cast me in Avatar (2009). And Avatar is responsible for the good fortune I've had over the last few years.
