I was born and raised Catholic, so it’s in my blood. I don’t go to church… I was born and raised Catholic, which is about the extent of my religion. My parents made one request: that I have my first Holy Communion.

I think ‘The Searcher’ is a departure from my first because it’s less grounded in religion and is far more rooted in the mythic tradition: more of an existential thriller where the main character is actually the central mystery, and his journey is all about trying to figure himself out.
