Andrew Scott's quotes

  • [when asked about fans] You get the occasional odd person.
  • [From an interview with the Sunday Mirror (London, England) from Oct. 8, 2000] I had a girlfriend in Dublin but I've been on my own for three years now.
  • I do sometimes play characters that are a bit ambiguous. You've got to be brave about that sort of stuff. I like the sense of people not feeling too secure, not immediately knowing what they have in front of them.
  • I'm not a big guy for research. You've got to take a risk.
  • It's a thrilling world, and people really like stories about secrets, which is the essence of a spy drama.
  • The goal is always just trying to stretch yourself as an actor.
  • I've played all these extreme guys, but playing an every man type has its own challenges.
  • Life's too short.
  • Never, ever wear three-quarter length trousers. Even in the summer.
  • I find any sort of acting that doesn't have any humor in it is mind numbingly boring.
  • People get distracted by box-office figures and take jobs because they think it will advance their careers.
  • I want to keep everything balanced. That's why it's important not to have too much fanfare.
  • The kind of actors I admire move through different characters and genres.
  • I don't like it when people ask actors to work for free - on the fringe - as if it's some kind of virtue. That annoys me - actors should be paid well.
  • 'Serious acting' is the kind of acting that I don't ever respond to.
  • I like clothes.
  • It's very difficult to make comedy work; I think it's a very underrated genre.
  • If one story becomes too hot, then you can't forget it. As an actor, you want to remain fluid.
  • One of my favorite parts of acting is the clothes that you get to wear, because it's very important.
  • I can totally understand why people say: 'I'm going to do this T.V. series so that I can buy a flat'. But you've got to see what's of value to you as an actor.
  • Audiences like to be challenged and to be actively involved and try to guess an outcome.
  • It sounds maybe a little old fashioned, but the parts I want to play and I do play, you don't want to inject too much of your own personality. What you sacrifice then is a slight mystery.
  • I am a private person; I think that's important if you're an actor. But there's a difference between privacy and secrecy, and I'm not a secretive person.
  • I think in my job, it's quite difficult to find work on television... you don't necessarily want to get a profile for something that you don't fully believe in.
  • [to a fan approaching him for a photo while he was wearing his jacket hood up] Oh God, let me take my hood down, I look like the grim reaper.
  • Art is about showing us who we are, not who we should be.
  • Having worked in the industry for a long time, you do realize that it's about who you work with. Because you don't make films alone.
