My very favorite costumed character I've played would be Abe Sapien from the 'Hell Boy' movies. I love this guy.
My wife and I have never been able to have kids of our own. Physically, it's impossible. The doctor checked. So we tend to unofficially adopt lots of twenty-somethings. I have a real soft spot in my heart for youth.
I can put my legs behind my head, but that's pretty much it. An early agent said to me, 'If you can put your legs behind your head, let's say you're a contortionist!' So I got sent out for everything twisty and bendy. It's a good conversation starter.
What sweetens the deal for me is that I get to develop an alien species from the ground up. I'm playing Saru, a Kelpian, and this race has never been seen before in any 'Star Trek' series.
Actors are divas, and we all make too much noise and complain too much, so if you don't do that, it makes you rather exceptional, apparently.
The gaming world is a complete mystery to me! Well, I did play Pac Man and Frogger using big machines at an arcade back in the '80s.
