Personal Quotes (4)

David Jason's timing as Del Boy was utterly beautiful. The performance was brave, confident and compelling. He was an artist. I never missed an episode of Only Fools and Horses.... (1981) - I still watch it now on DVD. I don't think we'll ever get that kind of writing again in British comedy.
I do get recognized in the States, but it's usually a look, like, 'Do you owe me money?' The other thing is they ask if they've seen me somewhere. I start to reel off my CV, and they go, 'Oh, I'm sorry, I was thinking of someone else.'
Maybe my physical ability is now limited in certain aspects of the job. In other aspects, age makes you a better actor. Honestly, I'm just happy when my phone rings and people want to talk about my career. I'm one of the lucky few in this country, and I never lose sight of the honor or the privilege this career has given me.
Give me the boy of 7 and I'll give you the man. The kind of joy and perpetual inquisitiveness that I had then in me remains. Though I remember being a boy at 7 and looking at someone who was 50 and thinking, 'How are you still alive?'
