“I always think it’s a sign of a truly gifted director when they can move seamlessly between genres.”

“Having started out in theatre, I feel an impulse to do it as much as I can.”

“I personally think if something’s not a challenge, there’s no point doing it because you’re not gonna learn much.”

 “I don’t have a burning passion for living in America per se, but I would certainly like to work there.”
