Dr. Christopher Turk on 'Scrubs'

What was your favorite episode of the show?

” ‘Kung Fu Fighting,’ baby! All of that practicing after ‘Kung Fu Theater’ on Sundays at 5 o’clock paid off.”

What has been the best off-camera moment?

“Living in New York with Zach Braff (after the first season). I had a great time that summer. From the second we met, it probably took me a second (to hit it off with him).”

How has the show changed your life?

“It’s changed my life dramatically. I went from not having any money in my bank account to being able to support my Hollywood dream. I was able to buy my mother a house. These are things you hope for. And I guess it’s built my name up in the community, in my profession. It’s really cool to hear my peers say, ‘I watch your show.’ “
