Rudolph and his co-stars celebrated the milestone!

Speaking about his milestone, the actor said: “It’s been really amazing. It’s been 14 fantastic years and I’ve worked with some fantastic cast and crew.

“I look forward to coming here,” he added. “I look forward to working. I still have that child-like feeling I had when I was 15 or 16, walking onto a set for the first time. I must admit I still have that excitement, that enjoyment.”
