Personal Quote:

[on making Youth Without Youth (2007)] All in all, it was an extraordinary journey. It was 90 days, I think, pretty much in Romania. I think I had one day off. And I think I made sure I switched my phone off so no one could get to me. It was very, very difficult, but incredibly worthwhile. We made it for a very small amount of money. It was a very low-budget movie. See more »

Trivia:

Roth, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Daniel Day-Lewis, Bruce Payne, and Paul McGann were all part of a group of actors in the mid 1980's dubbed ''The Brit pack'' by the media, a reference to the American ''Brat Pack''. See more »
