I want to do well enough to get some recognition. I would hope to become an actor who is good enough to win Oscars. That is my goal, to do as much as I can. I feel very lucky to be doing what I am doing with my career.

My biggest wish is to one-day do Shakespeare on a London stage. That was my biggest challenge when I first joined drama school.

I grew up being a very shy kid, and then I broke out in the 10th grade and I was relatively popular. I didn't date a lot of girls. My first girlfriend and I were together for, like, five years. I'm more of a long-term relationship type of guy. I was never big on dating 100 different girls.

Well, they sort of... they were looking for somebody that looked like that. And don't think there were... I was very unique in that respect. I don't think there were too many people in England, at the time, that looked like me. So when they were auditioning, I came in and it was either "me" or "me". So I got the part.. (On getting the part of Ardeth Bay).

The greatest compliment I’ve ever received came while I was sitting in a sidewalk cafe on L.A.’s Westside. A car pulled up and the driver an Arab American leaned toward me and said, ‘You make people from the Middle East proud.’ He knew that I was an Israeli, but it didn’t matter.

I am very Israeli. You grow up in a country where it's all very hard and it's a very painful history there. You leave the country and you find the most wonderful people who used to be on the other side, who are supposed to be your enemies. I wish there will be peace there but, for myself, I am very honoured to play Arabs or Muslims or Christians or Jewish.
