- "Stage is my first love, absolutely."
- "I had done my parts in fantasy shows and sci-fi shows. By the time Firefly came to me I was done. I didn't want to get on another ship. I didn't want to get into tight leather, "pleather," any combination of the two, and then I read his concept for this world and it had so little to do with science fiction and everything to do with human drama, and that's what fascinated me about it."
