Personal Quotes (3)

Yes, we know he liked a drink and we know he was homosexual, but he still remains a terribly, terribly private man. All I had to go on was a couple of interviews - one after Corbett (Harry H. Corbett) died - and Brambell's autobiography. Unfortunately, the book doesn't really tell you anything. Off-stage, he was a bit of a dandy. Always immaculately turned out. Overcoat, hat, cane, clean-shaven, cut-glass English accent ... he even had a different set of teeth. (On playing Wilfrid Brambell in The Curse of Steptoe (2008))
[on acting] I've never been able to talk properly about it. I just do it. It's like asking a painter about painting. They dip the brush and put it on the canvas. All I know is that if something isn't brilliant, there's no reason that you can't deliver it to the best of your ability. You can make those four lines great.
[on Barrie Keeffe] Barrie was a very important playwright. What he was articulating was actual anger. His plays were the equivalent of punk. Loud, aggressive, "What-about-me?" pieces of theatre.
