Will: (On how he started acting) To be completely honest, I stumbled into an audition thinking it was a commercial, and ended up booking an acting job. Beginner's luck, you might say.
Will: (On using both hands to fire weapons in "The Lost World") Unfortunately no, I'm not ambidextrous. Fortunately however, when I did frequently drop things from my left hand, I was always granted another take from the director so that I looked co-ordinated on the screen. It's all about smoke and mirrors.
Will: I'm a big sucker for great hamburgers like the rest of the world. The more stuff you can pile on it the better!
Will: If someone said to me..."here is a 007 script or an Indiana Jones role, are you interested?"...I would fall over. I love these action adventure roles that have a strong physical component, and fast entertaining story lines.
Will: If you asked me who's job I would like to have I would have to say a successful author. This is someone who works their own hours, gets paid to explore their imaginations, and who travels the world for research.
Will: I do love to visit cold places, just not have to live in them.
Will: I grew up listening to a lot of classical [music], because my father loved it so much. But all genres have something to offer me.
Will: (On his eating habits) I think I was born with taste buds that sleep.
Will: (On the film, "Hercules") Really, I think it will be a must watch when it hits the screen.
Will: Despite spending 3 weeks or so in New Zealand for Hercules, it did not equate to having much screen time. The role of Theseus is small in the grand scheme of Herc; however, that being said it was a lot of fun sporting a Ceasar hair cut and having a beard and just being on location.
Will: Without you the fans, the actor has no role!
