Richard Briers's quotes

  • People still see me in Good Life (The Good Life (1975)) repeats. I was 25 years younger then. Now I'm an old git with white hair.
  • I was trained as an actor and was taught voice projection and diction, but the fashion nowadays is to speak badly and make terrible noises from the back of your throat.
  • I don't watch very much on TV, partly because I'm old. I want very little action. I'm one of those awfully boring people who likes David Attenborough and the news.
  • They simply don't write funny stuff any more. A lot of it now is depressing. Or violent. Or both.
  • On being awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) I'm absolutely delighted..It's more than 12 years ago that I picked up the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) so to get this is marvellous.
  • I am irrevocably and unashamedly old-fashioned. I subscribe to The Oldie magazine - written expressly for the grumpy elderly - and I relish a good whinge.
  • Do I need or desire an iPod? Of course not! I'm afraid I won't live long enough to find time to listen to the 10,000 tunes you're supposed to be able to store on them.
  • If my agent has a job for me and I happen to be out, he phones me later when I'm back at home. If he doesn't want me, the phone remains silent. We have, for the past 50-odd years, always found this to be a perfectly satisfactory arrangement.
