Robert James-Collier's quotes

  • [on his role in Downton Abbey (2010)] It's a dream job because it's completely the other side of the spectrum, particularly as it carries on. My character gets nastier.
  • The reason I'm an actor and am trying to make my way in drama is to move people, to affect people, to gain a response - so these people who come up to you in the street are your audience.
  • I can't watch myself on screen without dying a little bit inside. And there are lots of moments when I think, 'What am I doing as an actor? I can't act!'
  • I would like to do theatre because it scares me, and I think you should do things that scare you.
  • The devil always has the better tunes!
  • My dad doesn't watch 'Coronation Street.' But my mum is a massive fan. I'd like to think my dad will watch it for a few token episodes, as I'm in it.
  • Most actors will tell you that villains are the most interesting to play.
  • I went to Huddersfield University Business School. That's where I learned my trade.
  • I got into acting for the different scenarios and roles and meeting different people.
  • Before 'Coronation Street,' I was a jobbing actor, and after it, I'm a jobbing actor again.
  • You don't buy evil characters lattes. That's not normal behavior.
  • Sometimes people can be guilty of not working at relationships and if it's not working, oof, that's it.
  • You know if something is good because you remember the lines because it is written so well. The rhythm of the speech is spot on.
  • If I had a comfort blanket, I wouldn't have been as passionate and driven.
  • I've swam with great white sharks.
  • Being in 'Coronation Street' is only going to make me a better actor.
  • There's definitely a wave of Brits doing great work on American television, and I wouldn't mind being one of them.
  • Obviously, I play a villain in Downton Abbey (2010). As an actor, you want to get a variety of roles, so to be offered the part of Joe, it was perfect.
  • I think because of my background - I went through university and did an academic career and fell into acting - I've never had a game plan for my career because I got into it quite ad hoc.
  • My girlfriend is a great support, and I've got a big circle of mates who keep my feet on the ground.
  • Because you've done the horrible jobs, it gives you an even grittier determination to succeed.
  • My mom and dad put my brother and sister through university and they were very keen for us to have an academic background just to give us a chance.
  • Beverly Hills is too intimidating. Everyone's got lovely teeth, so you don't want to smile. Everyone's ripped, so you start working out at 4 in the morning and eating egg white omelets.
  • When people accuse me of being really posh, I think, 'Hang on a minute - no, I'm not!'
  • Particularly with internships, you have to work for a year with no money. How on Earth are you going to finance that?
  • People identify with being heartbroken. We've all been heartbroken, haven't we? I've been dumped, and it feels horrible.
  • If you rile a tiger, he's going to show his claws.
