(On playing "Tarzan", following in the footsteps of arguably the most famous portrayer, Johnny Weissmuller) "It's a bit like playing "James Bond" after Sean Connery.
The good side of television is that your character grows and changes with you. And you have a check assured at the end of the month. The other side is that...it can sometimes become boring if it lasts for a long time, after you've done every possible thing with the character. With film, it isn't much of a problem because you only play the character for a short time before moving onto something else."
