My wife.

I would say Edmund from Long Days Journey into Night.

2nd question: No.

Just a small portion of my life was spent in Hollywood proper. But I do recall when I was 13, I think, my mother and my school teacher - Mrs Andersen - were walking on either side of me into the vast sound stage of MGM, where the set for the movie Kim was being constructed. There was Errol Flynn and someone introduced him to me. Still with my mother and teacher at my sides, he shakes my hand, looks me in the eye, and says, "Hi, Dean. Have you had your first fuck yet?"

Needless to say, this was overheard by my mother and my teacher.

The choice was intuitive and instantaneous during a rehearsal of the scene. And so we kept it in.

Carol here: Can't always trust the mighty internets for infos. Long story, but yes, we're tied, and yes I'm a Redditor. He and I are both absolutely stoked about the response we've gotten so far. Thanks, reddit!

I did not, and I regret having not done it. I really really regret having not done it. My costume line was exclusively designed by Jean Pierre Dorleac, to whom I'm thankful.

The latter.

Well, I particularly liked the scene where I played both Cavils together in the same scene and we went off into space holding hands at the end. I believe that was only at the end of The Plan.

I quite liked The Twilight Zone, where I played a Japanese soldier. A Quality of Mercy.

There's no preference to being one or the other, that is to say good or bad. Doing one or the other presents its own challenge. Once mastered, you're an actor. I like both.

Sci if royalty: Oh, wow. That's a good one, but I have no idea how to answer something like that. This is the first I heard of it, I think. That I know of.

It was loose as a goose.
