I never wanted to be an actor as a kid. I wanted to play hockey, like every other kid in Canada. I had a pretty good shot at it until I was 15 and badly injured myself. Then, I was lined up to do this honors degree course in biology, of all things, for no better reason than I got high marks in it. I decided I didn`t want to be removing worms` hearts for the rest of my life in Northern Ontario. I thought I would try acting. So, I went to England to study drama. I got Shakespeared out. I was sick of "thee" and "thou." You spend so much time talking like that you develop a lisp.
