Quotes

"It was great. The good guys get the women, I'll get there one day of course, but the bad guys have so much fun. You die but you have so much fun doing it. It's like throwing yourself around and fighting the good guys – and obviously losing to the good guys – but it's a lot more fun. That was my main [reason] for doing it."
― Sala Baker on playing a bad guy, [1]
