  • "He's become Magneto's right hand man in this movie and in X2 he's very ambivalent. He's not sure where his allegiance lies. He's friends with Professor X but he also has this urge to spread his wings and find his power with the brotherhood. In X3 he's definitely off the fence. He's decided where he wants to go. He's with the brotherhood and he really is allowed to fully explore his power in this. He's off the leash."
  • "You're an actor and you transplant yourself from role to role and there was very little time in between, like two weeks, but I had already done Pyro so I was familiar with the territory and it was pretty easy to slip back into."
  • "There was a little time off and then X-Men is such a big movie that you have a lot of down time. There was plenty of time to relax but it was funny. I went from the tip of the Sahara Desert where it's 115 degrees in the shade to Vancouver in the rainy season. I didn't know where I was."
