I’ve studied theater since high school. Of course, it’s a different story altogether being on Broadway, but it’s still theater, and you have to be in front of a live audience, and that’s very exciting. It’s something I’ve definitely wanted to do, but I got involved in movies and television, and then it became a luxury to get back on the stage.
I like to think I'm multi-faceted. Actually, my favorite roles are roles like in 'Far from Heaven.' Y'know. Soft people. Loving people.
