In an interview with AV Club, he was asked whether he had actively made the transition from stage to screen, to which he answered: “I thought I’d be doing theater, really. That’s all I had experience with growing up. I mean, I saw movies and television, but I don’t think I really connected at a young age that that was acting, that that was part of the profession. What made more of an initial impression on me was the theater we saw when we moved back to the States [from Slovenia]. We lived in the Bay Area and went to ACT—American Conservatory Theater—in San Francisco, and that’s what I thought of as… like, “That’s acting, people doing plays.” And that’s obviously what I did in high school and college. So I didn’t really see any avenues beyond that, and it’s mostly what I did the first few years out of drama school. So the TV and film stuff kind of trickled in later, and then took over.”
