Robert Hardy's quotes

  • Playing villains is half the fun, and you may not be an absolute villain yourself, but finding something in the villain, the horrid creature, that you enjoy.
  • [on Daniel Craig] I don't think he's a good actor, but he's very good at jumping.
  • [on Dominic West as Richard Burton] He was hopeless. He wasn't tough enough, he wasn't dangerous enough, he wasn't Welsh enough.
  • [on Helena Bonham Carter as Elizabeth Taylor] She was brilliant, absolutely brilliant. She got the spirit of her and sounded like her.
  • [on Timothy Spall as Winston Churchill] Absolutely awful.
  • If you're going to play somebody, you've got to try to capture that person. If Churchill was a bit much to our modern eye, well, so be it - let's have an over-the-top Churchill! If you're asked to play a dog, it's no use being a pussycat!
  • [on Albert Finney as Winston Churchill] He's a thorough actor and he did a fine job.
  • There was a very musical element in Churchill's speaking, and the danger of trying to get the voice, and making it simply repetitive, is a very real risk.
