Personal Quotes (4)

Pam [Ferris] is hysterically funny and often made me laugh at inappropriate moments. We both had attacks of giggles, which wasn't particularly conducive to the seriousness of the scene.
[on fame] Yes, well, I tend not to focus on that side of it, and best not to, really. You don't want to end up living a horribly narcissistic life, do you? And everything about fame and celebrity sort of suggests that kind of fate. As an actor, I think it's really important to be as anonymous as possible. It's your job to convince people that you are somebody else, and so any recognition I'd get away from the screen - well, it's not something I actively seek. To be honest with you, I'm surprised anybody does.
I simply loved education. I mean, I always loved acting as well. It really was a major passion for me, but one I felt I could only fully explore once I'd completed my degree.
Life's too short to worry about money.
