I think every experience you have working with people you admire and respect really enriches you as an artist.
He`s (T-1000) one of the ones that I`m the most proud of, but I can`t say that he`s my favorite. But he`s one of my close top favorites. I`ve done some roles since that I`m really proud of. I was proud of what I did in CopLand. I really liked what I did in Terminator 2; there have just been a lot of characters since that I`ve done that I`ve really enjoyed. I REALLY enjoyed John Doggett. He was definitely a role that I very much enjoyed. He might be my favorite. Yeah, Doggett might be my favorite actually. But I really liked the character I played in CopLand, a little movie I did called The Only Thrill" with Sam Shepherd, Diane Keaton and Diane Lane, and another movie, a very obscure little independent movie called "Texas Funeral" with Martin Sheen." - (on his favorite character)
I am this guy. This is the closest to the real me than I`ve ever seen. I grew up with these kinds of guys. - On his role in Fire in the Sky.
You can`t think about how people will perceive you or your character. All you can do is focus on your work. The rest is up to the universe.

I looked to animal and insect imagery to develop the lack of substance and wasted motion that my Terminator has. I tried to tap into the killer instinct inherent in animals, where they are locked onto a target and will walk through anything that gets between them and their intended target.

You don`t buy a Harley with your mind, you buy it with your heart and your balls.
We were marching since we were babies and all we did was make Jane Fonda famous.
My intention was just to be a good adversary for Arnold to match. To match and be superior in character that you would believe that I could get the upper hand on him or else the whole movie wouldn`t work. I obviously had a great deal of faith in Jim Cameron and Stan Winston and everyone involved, so that was where my commitment was, to really pull this off. I didn`t want to let him down or let anybody down but I had hoped it would be this memorable, I had an inclination it would, but I don`t think I realized what an impact it would have, and how it would change my life. - (about his preparations when he was cast as the evil Terminator)
It seems that the small movies are a little more risky and cutting-edge. You`ve got your big commerce and you`ve got your small films that you`re more passionate about.
I am enjoying playing humans a little bit more now.
I think 90% of acting is makeup and wardrobe. The other 10% is what I do here in my office, bouncing off the walls.
I wouldn`t trade my film school - which is basically Roger Corman - for anything. That`s how I got my experience in front of the camera.
I`m the kind of actor that talks to myself in a weird way to find whoever it is I`m looking for.
If acting hadn`t worked out? I never really gave that a lot of thought. Acting HAD to work out. I never gave myself another option. I had no choice.
I`ve been doing this 17 years but I can tell you I have more websites now than I have ever had devoted to me or my past career or my character. When I got this show, I think I had two fans out there that had created websites on my behalf.
Chris Carter is just a fantastic guy, I have enjoyed working for him, immensely. I loved this character. I don`t think I can say enough about Chris. It`s just a fantastic thing that he`s created and I`m so thrilled that I`ve been a part of it. I`m very grateful.
Acting is the only thing I have to offer so a day doesn`t go by when I don`t stop and appreciate this. - On Success.
Everyday I had to show up and convince myself that I literally was this guy (T-1000) and that`s not easy to do. There are many distractions. I really consider the whole T2 experience sort of like a boot camp, military type of an experience that I endured and sort of graduated from if that makes any sense to you. - (about `Wushu` the martial art training he studied for preparing the role T-1000)
I enjoyed the crew. The best part about `The X-Files` has been the crew. This crew is an exceptional family and to go to work with a bunch of people that you really like is great. They`re all the best of the best and they really try to do the best job they can. I`ll miss that.
I love acting, period. If I`m going to get hired as a psycho, by God I`ll take the job.
