Ballymena, Ireland Best Quotes:
“No, I don't get obsessed with acting. Because in the past when I have got obsessed about it, it really got in the way of the creative process. I've learned to hang the character on the coat-peg at the end of the day, and when I leave in the morning I pick it up again. and I had to work at that because the other way lies a strange sort of madness.”
