I didn't want to be the archetypal sponging brother-in-law, so I didn't go into acting when I got to the States.

As hard as I tried, I just couldn't inspire those kids to take an interest in Milton and Shakespeare and Donne.
I had a teacher, he was 86 years old and his name was Luigi in New York City, and he said, 'Never stop moving. You get to reinvent yourself.' So you have to find ways to reinventing yourself. Especially today, because it's a whole different market - social media is so important.
