Rhys Darby's quotes

  • It's a funny thing because it's what the people say when they come across a ghost situation is that it does freak you out, but then you do get over it - for some reason you're not scared to come across it again.
  • I get them [auditions] from time to time, and I sometimes get auditions for big dramas, and I often think, well, I'm not going to get that part. This was a big surprise - it was The X-Files.
  • I think that's one of the reasons people love The X-Files, because most people do believe that there's something else going on that we don't know, because life is just too bizarre to be the way it is.
  • I've seen UFOs, and Loch Ness - I've been to Loch Ness a few times looking for Nessie, and that's also a beautiful place to be.
  • When I do the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, I always go across to Loch Ness and stay there.
  • You're thrown to the side and then you think, oh, there's more to life than what we really can just see in front of us. There's something else going on.
  • I've never really been into ghosts or spirits, and I've only had a couple of those kind of experiences.
  • I do want to come across something, I do want to feel something and see something.
  • I tried my best [on audition for X-Files], and it worked out. I got the part. So I was flabbergasted.
  • I was in the New Zealand army for like four years, the exact period of when it was on the air, so I never saw it.
  • I am very much into the paranormal.
  • For anyone who's a fan of the X-files show - I mean, I have the ultimate role. I got to deal with Mulder, I got to talk to him, I had a fight sequence with him. Really for anyone who is a fan of the show, I think I fulfilled a lot of young boys' dreams.
  • I guess, on my list, going back to some old American stuff and British stuff that I used to love in the '80s, would be a British show called Dad's Army, which recently just turned into a movie.
  • Luckily the script [of X-files episode] was written wonderfully and that became who I was and I was quirky, and I was kind of agitated and not entirely happy, but at the same time, witty.
  • I'm probably a monster-of-the-week guy, and that comes back down to my old favorite show, which as a kid was always Scooby-Doo.
  • I missed Breaking Bad and people just go on and on about it until you're blue in the face with envy and you've got to watch it.
  • I've been to Loch Ness three times, I've done a fair amount of research on the Chupacabra and things like that, so I've actually done a bit of the sort of paranormal investigation that happens on this show [X-Files].
  • Now I'm a big fan [of X-files]. I had to see what all the fuss is about, and I love it.
  • I believe that there are definitely creatures out there in this world that we haven't classified yet, and whether or not they can transcend dimensions is yet to be seen, but I... well, to put it simply, I want to believe in that kind of stuff.
  • I've always been into monsters.
  • My optimistic outlook on life is to sort of be positive and take everyone at face value.
  • I think some of the big characters, you know, they do these adventures, but they've got something about them, they've got this charisma, and they've got to have a sense of humor. Because whether it be very dry, or very silly, they've got to be likeable.
  • That's one of the best things about characters like Indiana Jones. I mean, he's funny. He's done really wicked things.
  • ['Dad's Army'] was a military thing but also very funny, so it's kind of the two things that I experienced by being a soldier, and I found it very humorous then and there, because of the juxtapositions [and] me and my emotional state.
  • I'd love to be [one of MacGyver's buddies]. I'd watch that one and just think, wow, what a life. Living in Hawaii, driving around in someone's Ferrari, and solving mysteries.
