“I fell into this groove of doing professional bodybuilding and throughout my 20’s I was working in nightclubs and I was closing in on 30 and I realized I had accomplished nothing and had no future and nothing to fall back on and I thought, well what can I do after all these years. I thought I’ll be a professional wrestler! I actually went and I failed miserably and they told me to never come back and then I just pursued it out of spite and I became so obsessed with it.”
How acting is more difficult:
“It’s physical theatre, it was something I was very comfortable with. The thing that drew me to acting was it was such a different performance it was such an intimate performance. It’s a lot harder when I was wrestling it’s so big and broad, but acting becomes so intimate it almost becomes claustrophobic and I was terrified of that.”
