Quotes (55)

  • Dominic: I've been heartbroken once, (but) I look at it as an occupational hazard. If you are in the meat market, at some point you're gonna get mad cow disease.

  • Dominic: (on his character, Charlie, being written out of “Lost“ as a hero) I was pretty passionate about that. I was pretty gung-ho about: If I’m gonna go, If that’s how it’s gonna be, then I have to go out like a hero. If they kill me, and it’s for a great reason and it’s a great episode that is significant, then that’s completely cool.

  • Dominic: (on his “Lost” character, Charlie) He's a beautiful guy, Charlie, but he's a victim, and I've never really seen myself as a victim. I have a lot of sentimental care over him because I think he's a guy who's trying to make things right, but I didn't really understand a lot of the decisions that he made. If it was me I think I'd probably be spending more time on my own, and I'd probably be a little bit more savvy about this group. Charlie just seems to be in need of help all the time, he's a bit of a weakling, he's a cry-baby.

  • Dominic: (on Charlie, the character he portrays on “Lost“) Charlie is just quite different from me. He doesn't speak like I would speak, he doesn't say the things I would say, he certainly doesn't make the decisions that I would make, he hasn't lived the life that I would live.

  • Dominic: The make-up artist on Lost said I was easily the most abused actor on the show. I've been beaten up, blown up, I've been a drug addict and I've been in a real mess so it was good to have that prize - the most beaten up actor on the show.

  • Dominic: My mum and dad just loved the fact that I fooled around. They just embraced it. They'd always kind of enjoy it, and they liked it when I made them laugh.

  • Dominic: I'd always be the kid up singing and dancing and telling jokes and fooling around, and high energy. I must have been a nightmare for my parents.

  • Dominic: I was the class clown, so I was used to performing and fooling around in front of my friends.
