Adam Pascal: I am definitely less green than I was back then. What I meant by that was that I wasn't an actor and really at that point had no intention of continuing to pursue acting. What I did in "Rent" was just very natural. From day one I just connected to the role and the music and I think that's why I was successful in it.
Adam Pascal: (About his experiences in RENT) When I was doing the play, it was hard for me to understand why people reacted so strongly to it. I thought it was great, but I didn't understand until I left why it had such a visceral impact. Now I know that when you watch it, whatever your individual issues are, you feel like a little bit of something has been lifted off your shoulders. And that's so rare.
Adam Pascal: I had more fun making the movie than I did making the show Off-Broadway [where Rent began]. I'm older and wiser, and all the people that I was working with are now my close friends, as opposed to brand new friends. It was like going to camp with your old friends.
Adam Pascal: Ignorance is bliss. I wish I still had some.
Adam Pascal about Chris Columbus casting the original cast of Rent for the movie: The fact that Chris put us in the movie makes him a genius in my mind. To have the foresight to use the original cast and not a bunch of Hollywood 'it' kids is amazing in and of itself.
