Richard Armitage's quotes

  • I try to be quite a detailed actor. People were really picking up on that. Even if it was just a flicker of the eye or something, they got it.
  • You can spend a bit of yourself when you give yourself to a character. At the end of a job, you have to remind yourself who and what you are.
  • Live acting is a kind of adventure sport. I don't go abseiling or snowboarding, but I sometimes think that stepping out on stage can have the same kind of adrenaline rush.
  • I don't think actors need to go on pedestals. I don't buy it. I think it's a weird thing. It's like you become someone else, like stepping into another universe.
