[on his portrayal of Count Dracula on Broadway] I don’t play him as a hair-raising ghoul. He is a nobleman, an elegant man with a difficult problem… a man with a unique and distinctive social problem: he has to have blood to live and he is immortal.

[on his role as Skeletor in Masters of the Universe (1987)] It’s one of my favorite parts. I played him because my son was four years old and walked around with a sword yelling “I have the power!”. And he loved, loved, loved Skeletor. I didn’t even blink when I was offered the role. I couldn’t wait to play him.
