Q&A With Royal Pains' Mark Feuerstein
The actor talks about his TV doctor role, the real doctors who saved his daughter's life, and his parenting philosophy.
If you had to give up one of the five senses -- sight, smell, hearing, taste, touch -- which one would you pick?
I would say smell, but they're all so precious. I love the smell of my wife, my children, flowers, food. My mother unexpectedly lost her sense of smell for a period of time, and it was hard on her, but she's gained some of it back now, and I'm so happy because she's the one who taught me how to "smell the roses."
If you weren't an actor, what other career path might you have taken?
I'd have been a lawyer like my brother, my father, and most of my uncles. It's in the blood. But I took the path less traveled and oh! the difference to me. It's been a blast.
