Bela Lugosi's quotes

  • Circumstances made me the theatrical personality I am, which many people believe is also a part of my personal life.
  • Every producer in Hollywood had set me down as a type. I was both amused and disappointed.
  • I'd like to quit the supernatural roles and play just an interesting, down-to-earth person.
  • I'll be truthful. The weekly paycheck is the most important thing to me.
  • [on being typecast in villain roles] I find that, because of my language and gestures, that I am cataloged as what you call a heavy. My accent stamped me, in the imagination of the producers, as an enemy. Therefore, I must be a heavy.
  • In Hungary, acting is a career for which one fits himself as earnestly and studiously as one studies for a degree in medicine, law or philosophy. In Hungary, acting is a profession.
  • Every actor's greatest ambition is to create his own, definite and original role, a character with which he will always be identified. In my case, that role was Dracula.
  • Never has a role so influenced and dominated an actor's role as has the role of Dracula. He [Dracula] has, at times, infused me with prosperity and, at other times, he has drained me of everything.
  • [on playing Dracula] It's a living, but it's also a curse. It's Dracula's curse.
  • If I had one per cent of the millions Dracula (1931) has made, I wouldn't be sitting here now.
  • [in response to an interviewer question "Doesn't Dracula ever end for you?"] No. No. Dracula never ends. I don't know if I should call it a fortune or a curse, but it never ends.
  • Look to Count Károlyi as Hungary's own Abraham Lincoln!
