Television is what we call the long form of storytelling, where we tell stories over thirteen, twenty-two, or twenty-four hours.

The funny thing is, the older I get, the less I enjoy talking when I act. I don't like talking anymore. I like behavior. All of the running and gunning, and the fights and the stunts, is just awesome fun.

Strangely enough, I find myself more centered in chaos than in calm, and again I'm not sure whether that's a strength or says something weird about me, but I love a crisis.

I think my children have presented one of the biggest lessons so far in my life.

I've actually usually been wary of taking on science fiction as an actor because it's really tough to do. It's really difficult to execute. There's often lots of prosthetics, green screen and special effects, and it can get very technical.

Money is tighter now, with the advertising dollar spread a lot more thinly across a whole range of media because of the Internet. It means the television networks have less power to produce shows, and TV is where most Australian actors make their money.
