Paul Gross: (on the rewards of being a writer) The most rewarding thing is directing actors. That is really a treat. Part of the reason is if you have really good actors, as I did, it's just a joy to watch them go at a scene. To be reminded of what a wonderful thing it is that actors can do...to inhabit these people. You've really only written these black and white symbols we call words and they suddenly are full bodied and they have hearts and it's fantastic.
