It is a little weird now, going over to Heath's place.
It's like, 'Hi Heath, hi Nomes.' Very strange!
Most horror films fail to scare me. I think "The Ring" plays more as a psychological thriller. It's smarter, there's more character development and some of the themes explored go a little deeper.
Heath, I believed in him when I first met him, and helped and supported him.
He went on to obvious success in the States and then I had him support me. It can be a lonely, horrible, hard place. It's great just to have someone to call to say 'I know, man, I was there'
The accent got lost somewhere along the way.
I'm a little embarrassed about it. When I arrived in LA I assumed I'd be able to put on the American accent. It proved difficult so I had six months working with a dialect coach and it's become a habit.
I always thought I'd go to university and then get a real job, you know.
Now I want to do stuff that really makes me happy. Although I'm still trying to work out what that is. But for me there are always constants.
It's a great challenge to come from little New Zealand and beat the odds in Hollywood.
