Personal Quote:

I don't want a zillion dollars. I don't want to be a carbon-copy star. All I want is to be me, Michael Sarrazin, maybe the best damned actor in the world. Take me on my own terms, or I'll cut out. [Interview with The Toronto Star, 1966]


The play, "Michael's #1 Fan", written and directed by Frankie Avella (aka Frank J. Avella), was a fictional seriocomic piece about a fan of the actor. It was presented off-Broadway in 2000. See more »
