"I tend to be really verbose, you know. If you ask me a question, I’m going to answer, like six different answers. And you’re like, “you didn’t answer my question”. But that’s just because I like getting into things. I like people. I like people a lot. And, uh, I try to be as specific and explicit as possible, because that’s all we have - communication.

Day to day, I stay away from combs. If your hair is going a certain way, follow it—the best thing you can do is accent what you already have. I don’t think I’ve combed my hair in 15 years."

"Our Captain Hook can be charming and caring and that’s what makes it all the more heartbreaking when he does something villainous, because you know he has a moral code. He knows he is doing something wrong but he is just so consumed by this quest for revenge that he just can’t stop himself."
"It’s easier to hate than it is to love so I think we come out on top."
