  • Quotes

    • (comparing his Corner Gas character to the character he plays in Death of a Chief)
      Lorne Cardinal: I love playing Davis, he's fun to do, but on the other hand, it is a two-dimensional character. As an actor, I need to, for myself, just to play with three-dimensional characters and go in a different emotional range, which is why I love Shakespeare, 'cause the language is so rich and there's so much there in the writing.
