Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's quotes

  • I know nothing more annoying when people I don't know jump to conclusions on my person based on nothing but gossip or speculation.
  • I'm a huge 'Breaking Bad' fan; I would be really annoyed if anyone told me anything about what was going to happen in the last eight episodes.
  • I like to wear beautiful clothes, but I don't have that many.
  • What I love about acting is that you are exposed to so many different things. Horse-riding, sailing, travelling to amazing places.
  • The only thing I find difficult to watch - horror movies - not that I don't like them. Like 'The Shining,' it's one of my favorite movies, but it's terrifying. I feel like I've watched a marathon afterwards.
  • Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to be an actor.
  • A villain to me is someone who actively seeks to hurt someone or does things for his own gain.
  • All actors tend to be the same messed-up people.
  • As an actor, secrets and obstacles fuel the character.
  • I think we all have the capacity of evil in us.
  • I like to be comfortable.
  • I love political dramas. I love good story-telling.
  • I'm a fan of great storytelling.
  • I was 15 or 16 when I first saw 'Once Upon A Time In America,' so I was quite young, but I was completely blown away.

  • I've never understood why you would turn down a great role.
  • If you look at most of the Royal Houses in Europe, the inbreeding was pretty outstanding.
  • Most female actresses will have a very difficult time being made unattractive.

  • It's beautiful being out in the wild.
  • I couldn't pick up a sword and go fight anyone, let me put it that way. It's choreography and it's acting. The best sword fights you see look amazing, but it's the acting that sells it more than anything.
  • You always dream of being part of a show that reaches and thrills an audience.
  • When I was a kid I was always afraid of small dogs, because they always seemed like the ones that would attack.
  • There's something liberating about watching someone not following the rules.
