Lee Pace Speaks on Pushing Daisies, Acting

Keeping Pace
Pushing Daisies star Lee Pace was recently featured in Bend Weekly, an Oregon newspaper.

It sounds like he enjoys working on the show almost as much as we enjoy watching it.

"It's fantastic - this show is the most exciting thing in my life and I love shooting here," the actor said. "I love being on a set 17 hours a day."

Overall, Pace always knew he wanted to star on the big and small screen.

"To be honest, acting was the only thing I really knew how to do when it came down to making a living doing something," he said. "A high school student in Houston at 17, Juilliard was the only drama school I auditioned for. It was foolish thinking.

But it's obviously worked out well.

"I was an arrogant little (jerk) - I just knew I would get in - and luckily I got in," Pace said of his experience with the prestigious university. "Of course, the one thing about Juilliard is that they take the arrogance right out of you. They let you know how you'll be a much better actor if you think less about yourself and more about the work at hand. I'm not arrogant anymore."
