Claire Foy's quotes

  • When I got the audition for "Macbeth", it's awful to say it but I can see what leads her to do what she does. Her husband's destiny has been proclaimed and she says "You've got to meet it." Which women do all the time.
  • I am always so envious of people who do whatever they want.
  • I've seen Pride and Prejudice (1995) about 4,000 times. I'm not joking: I know every single line.
  • I wouldn't have been able to go to drama school when I was 19. I don't think I was even conscious of life... I was like a zombie. But when I finished uni' I just realized... just go and do it, stop being a knob.
  • If I was working nine to five, acting would be my hobby... I always feel like maybe I should do an Open University degree. But I'm never going to.
  • I'm lucky I have a fast metabolism... my whole family does... everyone's got a lot of nervous energy so we burn it off.
  • Growing up, I was obsessed with Leonardo DiCaprio.
  • I've worked in supermarkets, put tags in baseball caps and provided security during Wimbledon, but I never thought acting would be something I'd be any good at, or make a living from.
  • I love home, any home really - my mum's, and of course my own. I love eating food there and chilling in bed with a cup of tea.
  • I hate having to pose for photos. It's just so embarrassing. Everyone is expecting you to know what to do because you're an actor, but I haven't a clue.
  • I think generally British people are more culturally cynical about the things that involve our own country. Especially the royals. And in any country, if you're close to something, you view it differently, but it will be interesting to see.
