Eric Mabius: (on whether he always wanted to be an actor) It wasn't ever a bug, necessarily. It's something that occurs gradually, at least for me. I knew that acting was something that I really enjoyed, but I also knew that there are a million people that want to do it. And I worked hard at it, and studied in college and did off Broadway plays; and slowly things started to happen. And probably only after 16 or so films am I even comfortable calling myself some kind of actor; partially because of fear of not realizing my potential or achieving some goals that I had set out for myself.
