Personal Quotes (3)

Being asked to play one of the butlers is like being picked to play for England. All you have to do is think of the great butlers from the past - Terry-Thomas in 'How To Murder Your Wife,' John Gielgud in Arthur and Denholm Elliott in Trading Places (1983).
I've never done stand-up; I came via small-scale touring theatre, through the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre, then I got employed on that as an actor who had a humorous sensibility.
I'm stunned that people keep asking me to play characters I didn't expect to play.
