A. Sleep.

Q. What is your best vacation memory?

A. Best memory was when I had a two-week break in the middle of shooting a film called "When Strangers Appear." We were in the southern part of the north island of New Zealand. I drove to Wellington and took the ferry across the Cook Strait to Picton and drove around the entire south island of New Zealand. I saw glaciers, rain forests, their beautiful coastline and Queenstown.
