I was doing a tour of the 'Batman' live stage production, and I challenged the cast to join me to run. One time, we were running in Switzerland just before Christmas, and it was heavy snow. Another time, we were running down the Seine in Paris on Christmas Day, and we all had Santa hats on.
I lived near Arthur's Seat when I lived in Edinburgh. It was the perfect playground as a child. I always have a wee run up there when I'm back.
I didn't want to be one of those arty nutcases.
I was a big 'Battlestar Galactica' fan and 'Star Trek' fan. I grew up watching those.
I love sci-fi. Growing up, I was a big fan of the 'Alien' series, 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,' etcetera. Plus, anything apocalyptic - 'I Am Legend,' '1984,' 'Battlestar Galactica.'
Everything goes with blond. You can wear it with any color, and it's great.
When I was going through school, I joined the Lyceum Youth Theatre, and that kind of cemented it. Through being in and around the building and watching shows, I realised that there was something I really loved about it, so I went into the stage management side.
Female clothing seems to be extremely difficult and almost like a puzzle for a man to take off. But I think if you get there, you win. A kilt is the complete opposite. The kilt is so easy to take off.
It's something you dream about, working in Scotland, working in Glasgow, walking down the same streets I used to walk down when I was a drama student, daydreaming about being in an American TV show or doing something that was well known. I guess I sort of pinch myself.
My accent is... sort of an Edinburgh sort of soft southwest Scottish accent. It could almost be English.
I won't tell anyone where my favourite place in Scotland is... but it might be somewhere on Skye.
I grew up in Scotland, and everyone wore Barbour. It's very practical; it's very outdoorsy. It's what the gamekeepers and the fishermen and the farmers would wear.
British women can be slightly more reserved; Scottish are a little more crazy and fun, and American are more forthright, which I really enjoy.
I think that what I'd like to instil is that if you join the youth theatre, it's a gateway into greater career prospects.
Glasgow is certainly a place where they will tell you if they don't think you are anything special.
When I was growing up, we had cats, dogs, guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, chickens - a whole menagerie.
Hiking is a great passion of mine, and I find myself picking up empty bottles.
My family were pretty big hippies.
I was traveling a lot as a young actor, and while in a new city, I'd want to see the place, so I would just put on my trainers and go for a jog. And the more I did that, the more I found I was traveling longer and longer distances. I just fell into it.
The classic, 'Romeo and Juliet,' for me, is the iconic story of young love.
