Personal Quote:

There have been too many vampire films lately. The extraordinary thing is it now appeals to young teenage girls. If Anne Rice's vampires symbolized the spread of AIDS, the creature of the night has become something altogether more 'strange.' When I saw the first Twilight (2008) I thought "OK, well now it's become this allegory about chaste love between teenagers. How weird!" See more »

Trivia:

Directed 4 actors in Oscar nominated performances: Bob Hoskins, Stephen Rea, Jaye Davidson, and Julianne Moore. See more »

Trademark:

Stephen Rea features in many of his films
