Taylor Kitsch

"My mom was a single mom and I got two brothers—and two young half sisters now—but growing up I was the youngest."

"I think the best thing she [my mom] ever did was let us do our shit and make our mistakes. Like I was out of the house at 15 or 16 to play hockey. She was just like, 'Yeah, go, can you do it?'"

(Jeff Lipsky)


"I got traded out of nowhere to the Fernie Ghostriders. Then I went and played pretty close to home and I hurt my knee. I'm like 'my knee's done.' I'm going to university to study nutrition and kinesiology."

"I had the opportunity to go to New York through a fluke deal."

(Jeff Lipsky)


"I've always loved acting and being a part of it and if you're going to study you might as well study the best. So I studied there [New York] for years."

"I didn't have a visa, which is fucking huge because I couldn't get a regular job. I had nothing, so I ended up living in the subway for a bit and in buddy's places and all that shit scraping by."

(Jeff Lipsky)


"There was a gap after I was done playing hockey. 'There's something that's eating me. There's something more out there.' Even a lot of my mates now, they don't react to that, or take that risk."

(Jeff Lipsky)


"If I didn't play hockey or anything like that I wouldn't have been there either, because that's shaped so much of who I am."

(Jeff Lipsky)
