[interviewed in 1990) I would love to play a vampire because they are so sexual. And they are the dark side of human thought. What a possibility to play someone that can see what your heart is doing, feel the blood running through your veins, know what you are thinking, and have all the experience of years and years. It would be so interesting.
[About Highlander (1992) co-star Stan Kirsch] He never slept like a log, let me tell you. He was always up 'til four in the morning. He was partying every night.
