Anna Massey's quotes

  • I think however old and blind and prune-like one may look, the spirit that goes on inside you stays young and flirtatious.
  • My education finished at fifteen; if I'd stayed at school I'm not sure I'd have become an actor.
  • Theatre eats up too much of your family life. I have a grandson and a husband and I'd rather I was able to be a granny and a wife.
  • Actors marrying each other is not a good idea.
  • I'm not instinctive. It takes enormous discipline and bravery to get me there [playing a role].
  • [on Alfred Hitchcock] He would always before a take tell you some dirty schoolboy joke. He did that to relax you because it relaxed him.
