Peter Cullen's quotes

  • Everybody's going to approach a character differently, depending upon what they bring to it on their own intellectual level or their feelings from their heart and soul.
  • I enjoy dramatic narration, of course, because I'm an actor and I started as an actor. But I love things that are a challenge, and I look forward to more work with that in the future. So there's always a sun coming up the following day for me.
  • My brother was a captain in the Marine Corps and a very big hero in my life.
  • I immerse myself right into my character whether or not I'm relating to people live as an actor on stage or whatever.
  • As a young actor, I would be invited to the CBC radio drama department to do voices for different characters, and I found that I could do quite a few of them. I wasn't a visual presence, and I found it easier to construct a voice from the written page.
  • The phenomenon of Transformers (1984) itself is mind-shaking, you know?
  • I kind of modeled Optimus Prime's voice out of many people I had known over the years, my family especially.
  • I always try to make a voice to go with the characteristics - if the guy's a hothead or he's cool, whatever.
