Julian: I'd say without a doubt I've had the most sex scenes in any television show, ever. Last season I did eight sex scenes in one day - I haven't topped that yet.
Julian: I always look back on Home & Away with fondness, especially when I'm in the UK. But I had no idea what I was doing back then. I just fell into acting. It was only later that I became passionate about it.
Julian: (on accents) I use a standard American pronunciation... the difficulty comes when an actor has to think about his accent, because you can't relax and think about your role as much.
Julian: (on his Nip/Tuck character) It's the conflict inside that I really enjoy playing. My character is the lead guy, and you don't want the lead guy to be just an asshole all the time. So you have to find ways to make the audience take the journey with you.
Julian: I was pretty young when my father was prime minister, so it wasn't really a big part of my life. My folks were away a lot, meeting foreign dignitaries and that sort of thing, but it never struck me as odd. If anything it allowed me to get into all sorts of mischief.
Julian: You know, it's always fun to play the bad guy at the end of the day.
Julian: It's very hard to step into a job when people are just dismissing you as a pretty face, and saying you got your job only because your surname is McMahon.
