"I was really wild back then (in high school), and theater just allowed me to sing, dance, jump and run around the stage playing all kinds of characters. It was like playtime. You were creating something, and there was a result that other people could enjoy."
I played the best role I`ve ever seen on TV or film in the last five years. It was hugely gratifying.
I love having no sense of tomorrow or yesterday.
They understood why I left ER. It wasn`t just about a guy.
I`m a terrible patient, and I find that doctors can be very condescending.
When you walk away from a really wonderful job like that, you start messing with everyone`s priorities. It`s like you`re dissing them.
People can get certain good things out of fame, but until it killed a princess nobody ever talked about how bad it can be.
Physics has the cutest words.
I don`t get rattled about the big things. I get rattled when I have to pick up my laundry, get gas in the car, pick up a script.
I`m from the theater. I never wanted to be a star.
I love going to the set every day, because Noah Wylie will be there waiting.
It took a long time to get out of my contract. The producers thought I was negotiating for more money.
You can`t mess up. If you do, everyone wants to kill you.
I`m incredibly happy to be doing my own thing in New York.
Only the patients have to take off their clothes. I think I`m pretty safe.
It took the producers a while to realize I wanted a full-bodied life. I wanted to get out before I felt I`d sacrificed so much to get somewhere that I couldn`t afford to leave.
I had my electricity turned off three times because I never had time to pay my bills. It was a joke. I`m making a ton of money, and I`m walking around my apartment with flashlights.
There`s only so much you can do with an attorney on a show that`s about New York policemen.
My character is not a surgeon, thank God. I would fall apart if I had to sit and watch someone being cut open to prepare for the role.
The lines are the last thing I have to worry about. When we film those scenes, we go through several rooms at once, without the camera stopping.
