As soon as I have the script in my hand, I'll be up in my apartment room pacing up and down learning it because it's just such a lovely thing to do.
Well I am afraid that I am going to die, because I have just put a down payment on a house.
What we do is ridiculous! I think that even when what I'm doing is serious, even when I'm not turning into a werewolf. It's a silly thing to do, isn't it? It's what you do in the playground when you're kids - but actors just never stop doing it.
I don't think Alfonso was a big expert on Potter either. He was feeling his way through it more than I was.
I really like Los Angeles. I like the weather, the openness of it, the beach, the mountains, the desert. I find it inspiring. I get quite a lot of writing done out there.
I started doing the big Hollywood stuff, and I realised, 'Oh, there's no rehearsal at all; you just turn up on the set, and sometimes you haven't even met the other actor, or the woman who's playing your wife, and you're suddenly in bed with them.'
Restoration I did because I really loved e novel and I like Michael Hoffman, who directed it, but it wasn't a really challenging part for me. I'm not critical of the film: I just don't think I gave a very interesting performance.
Dad worked in the same shop, behind the same counter, five or six days a week, for 38 years, and hated it.
I adore children. If I weren't an actor, I would be a teacher or work with small children in some way. I feel happy in their company.
In 'Seven Years In Tibet,' I played a Buddhist. But I'm not religious at all, really.
I like tourists. I think it's nice to live in a town that people come from all over to visit.
What is truth? What is a true story? Who is telling the truth, and what is truth in this world today?
I keep myself content by doing lots of different stuff and make sure that my next role is completely different to the last. I just enjoy the versatility of it, the challenge of doing lots of different things. It keeps the job interesting.
I like time off. I'm not a workaholic.
I was a young actor in my 20s, going out in Soho, having a wild time.
