A lot of people say, "Oh, you're that jerk on Ugly Betty (2006)". I don't blame people for having a pop, but I'd like to remind them that I'm not "Daniel Meade" - Interview, 2007.
I'm not very comfortable with (watching my performances). When I watch films or tv that I've done, I get very restless and tend to not sit still. A lot of actors are perfectionists, besides merely being egotists. So I see what I like to change about my performance, as opposed to the things that I tried and seemed to have landed well.
