    • Barry: There are many easier paths to choose than to be a professional actor. But there is no other career that can be so richly fulfilling. Be prepared: study; observe; train your mind and your body; read; absorb all you can about the performing arts. And don't forget to be patient with yourself. Most careers do not come in a flash of light, but build and grow gradually. Sure, we all want to climb the high mountain... travel to the far horizon, but the joy lies in the journey, not the final destination. When you work, work hard. Be the best damn actor you can be. Be proud of what you are and what you do.

    • Barry: I'm a very lucky guy, I've had very successful career. I have terrific friends. I'm married to the most beautiful woman I've ever met and we have a wonderful home and enjoy traveling together. Life is good.

    • On his Family Matter's character
      Barry: Murtagh was great fun. The straighter I played him, the more ridiculous and funny he became.

    • About his first professional work
      Barry: We did one show at night, while we built sets and rehearsed for the next show during the day. I was paid twenty dollars a week plus room and board. Sure, it was a lot of money, but I worked seven days a week.
