Shalim: (On finding his soul mate Leslie) I've found the one. The question is when we'll get married, and with the help of God, it'll be sooner than later. This is the woman I love.
Shalim: (On his Mom approving on his fiancee) My mom adores her. She loves her a lot. She always knew Leslie was the one.
Shalim: (On his brother and sister being twins) It's a special and intense relationship. My little brother and sister are each other's protectors and have a shorthand that is only understood to each other, sometimes they act like a married couple and get jealous if anyone gets too close to one of them.
Shalim: (On the possibility of being killed on Heroes) Every time I open a script, I wonder if I'm going to be breathing at the end of it. But also the nature of the show is that the normal rules don't apply. Heroes has substantial characters who stay on the show even after they die.
Shalim: I'm pretty close to finding a new fusion and a new sound for the third album. It'll be my first in English, and I'm really looking forward to it.
