Brian Cox's quotes

  • I was on with Sigourney Weaver, and we chatted about Alien (1979), my favourite film since I was 11. For as long as I can remember, all I ever wanted to do was to be involved in science and space flight and astronomy. (On The Graham Norton Show (2007))
  • The universe and astronomy are the easiest sell in the world. You're talking about galaxies of a hundred billion stars and moons of ice with oceans below the surface - it's not hard to get the public interested.

  • The trouble with New York today is that it's lost its balance. I love the new, greener New York, but it takes all kinds of worlds to make a World.
  • I always think I look like the Elephant Man - I can't get used to my own image.
  • The heritage of a British actor revolves around the challenges of playing the classic roles to meet certain levels of success as an actor. In America, the heritage of an actor is based on cinema mainly.
  • Actors in general have become very spoiled in the roles they choose these days. When I first started in this profession - about a hundred years ago in the last century - it was all about taking risks, it was about doing the job and honing the craft.
  • People always make that mistake when they talk about theatre - the notion of the 'theatrical' meaning something separate from life. If it doesn't relate to life, it doesn't relate to anything.
  • I used to do a lot of fencing in the theater and a lot of horse riding in the early days, so I'm used to it in a way. If you're classically trained like I am, it's a little bit like mother's milk to me. I enjoy it.
  • There's so much light in Broughty Ferry. I think the humor in Glasgow is darker, because it's much more gloomy, there's a perpetual misery there.
  • The problem is that the U.K. in essence is a feudal society. It's everyone in their place.
  • I think I must be the only British actor who's played both Stalin and Trotsky. I need to play Lenin so I can make it a triptych.
  • I didn't have this feeling that I should be a leading actor in the cinema. And I wouldn't want the responsibility of the opening weekend.
  • For me, it's just acting. It's pretending. The best actors are children, and children don't do research. You never see a child going, 'I'm wondering about my motivation here. How can I do this toy? How can I do this train? I don't feel train.'
  • I've directed a couple of times in the theater, but I wouldn't make a habit of it because it's too consuming.
  • I've always wanted to make a film.
  • There is a history of mental breakdowns in my family. It will never happen to me but it has happened to others in the family.
  • I enjoy acting now more than I ever have. I've had lots of difficult times when I was younger, but that was all tied up with thwarted ambition. It's hard being a young actor, because you don't realize until later that it's only ever about doing the work.
