Paul Guilfoyle - CSI

Notable Quotables:

  • I gwet unWnerved when people call it a procedural drama. It's not that these characters don't have issues; they just don'reveal them. It's the way a classical musician works. There's an interpretation behind the notes. It's not overt.
  • I like a low profile. For people to accept the roles I play, it's better to keep myself out of it. (
  • Strive to be authentic all the time. That's sort of my philosophy on life, which applies to acting.
  • Well I think that the mind of a serial killer and the mind of the detectives represent the duality we face as people.
  • I've been an actor for so long. I've had about a hundred jobs. So I, you know, I have all the confidence that I'd get another job if this one ended."
When Paul's Not Acting:

  • Guilfoyle and his wife and daughter call New York City home. He is an avid fan of hockey. A stage-experienced actor, he is a member of the Experimental Theatre Company of Boston.
