We've never had nannies. We've had great grandparents, great support from family, and the kids have been on every set: they've seen me play Gollum, King Kong, Captain Haddock, the lot. They totally get it, and they want to go into the business. Ruby, my daughter, is very keen to become an actress.

Well, my transition into being a captain was easy.
I was assistant in Edmonton with Wayne as captain, and Kevin Lowe was the other assistant.
When Wayne was traded, I became captain. For me it really wasn't anything - I didn't do anything or I didn't feel I had to do anything different than what I had been doing all along.
But I just think as a captain, everybody's different.
