In Scotland I'm just like a lot of other guys, but in America I'm seen as a very strong, masculine guy.

On acting: Just make them feel something, because I think so many of us including myself, spend too much time not feeling enough, you know?

Choosing the right mask helps you... We went through many masks. It was very particular leather that as soon as you smudged it, you had to get a new one. We went through about 55 masks.

It was always a dream as I was growing up. I would watch movies, mostly American movies, and be so engrossed in those stories, all I wanted to do was be there. I wanted to be part of that romance or that fantasy or be that warrior or that struggling soul who finally makes it good.

Manscaping and all of that is not my thing. I'm more of the Clint Eastwood kind of guy.

I always find stuff in my characters to relate to.

I did spend a lot of my childhood playing out movie scenarios in my head. I'd walk along the road, pretending like I was in the army, talking on the radio, and doing maneuvers. I dreamt a lot about performing in movies and living in fantasies.
