Personal Quote:

People who work in television often don't think they can trust film makers because they are supposed to be a bit more arty and self indulgent, and people in film might think anyone who works in television is a hack. If we had more filmmakers working in television, and more television writers and directors working in film, we'd have a much healthier and more vital industry. See more »

With a total of 4 installments under his belt, Yates holds the record for directing the most Harry Potter films. See more »
