I’m a big Batman fan; to be honest, to be a part of any superhero movie would really fulfill all of my childhood fantasies. If I could get beaten up by Batman, and just be part of the franchise, even getting kicked through a window would be great!
Ray Park QuotesShowing all quotes
When I played Darth Maul, it sort of came from inside. I’m not saying it was natural, but I really enjoyed it, and I think I was tapping into my childhood, growing up with ‘Star Wars.’ And I grew up with G.I. Joe as well. Same as ‘Thundercats’ and ‘Transformers’ and ‘He-Man.’ And so I think it was the inner kid in me just came out.
I’ve said that I would play anything to do with ‘Star Wars.’ But really, deep down, I would love to come back as Darth Maul – that’s what I want to do. I would go crazy, go mental, lock myself in a cabin, you know. Do the whole ‘method’ for two or three months, spear-fishing and stuff, just to play the character again.
Growing up as a kid, I wanted to be a ninja. In martial arts, even though I did Chinese kung fu, I always wanted to be this secret samurai or a ninja. There’s something about ninjas that was very appealing to me as a kid. So of course, I was climbing a lot of trees and other things and getting up to mischief – good mischief.
