‘I’m the kind of guy that if there’s something I like, I like to find out everything about it. Do my due diligence and research and learn it. I am a storyteller through and through. Everything’s bigger in Texas; that’s where we’re always telling stories, and I have a lot of fun experiences from traveling around the world and being in all these different businesses. I’ve seen so many dynamics that I have a lot of stories to tell. That’s the next thing on my list, is just writing, producing, directing.’

“If you’re having a hard time because you like something that maybe a lot of other people don’t, know that when you grow up, no one cares. It’s so great. I call it like a fish bowl to an ocean. There are too many people to keep track of for everyone to judge. I feel like it just gets a lot more laid back and no one cares. It’s really nice.” — Holland Roden

Happy 77th Birthday, Sir Ian Murray McKellen! [ May 25, 1939]

Before acting, I wanted to become a journalist. I also toyed with the idea of being a chef - but that’s only when people asked me what I wanted to be. In fact, I always used to say I wanted to be an actor, but I didn’t ever believe that I was good enough to become one.’ - Ian McKellen.
