I’m a very religious person.
While I filmed the ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ series for eight and a half years, I had never had much time to read, except for screenplays of the episodes.
When I got into the film business, my aim was to adopt a positive persona, of a guy who fights against injustice. And it saved me, because my acting was atrocious to say the least!
I’ve been very fortunate to be able to use my series as a platform to show a good message for the kids.
It wasn’t until I went to Korea out of high school and got exposed to the martial arts for the first time and was just completely enamored with the physical ability of the martial arts and making my black belt.
Truthfully, I’m proud of each of my films in a certain way.
People need to realise what real happiness and success is, because success as an actor is fleeting. You can be up there one day and gone the next.
I’m a people’s actor, not a critics’ actor, and I always have been.
I haven’t always been warmly welcomed for holding my conservative positions in Hollywood. Then again, I’ve never been very good at being politically correct either, on or off screen. So why start now?
I think you can learn from history.
Some of the most miserable people I know are some of the richest people in America, they are the most miserable individuals I’ve ever seen.
I gave my life to the Lord at 12. I was baptized at 12.
I definitely feel I do have God in my corner.
Whatever luck I had, I made. I was never a natural athlete, but I paid my dues in sweat and concentration and took the time necessary to learn karate and become world champion.
Violence is my last option.
