Michael Emerson's quotes

  • I've had the blessing of doing classic plays on Broadway, which was one of my great dreams forever.
  • It worries me a little bit the reach and power of TV. More people saw me in The Practice (1997) than will ever see me in all the stage plays I ever do. Which is sort of humbling. Or troubling. Or both.
  • [about doing Unfaithful (2002)] You work four days, and then one line is left when you see it. Demoralizing.
  • [After seeing his first show...] I thought to myself that night, if I could ever be half that cool, if I could ever be half that entertaining, I would never ask for anything else.
  • [When he was cast as Oscar Wilde...] This was the break of a lifetime. This was my Cinderella moment.
  • I feel that I waited a long time to give birth to Benjamin Linus.
