Sophie Okonedo's quotes

  • I don't like going for more than a year without doing theatre. I don't mind falling flat on my face so long as I feel I'm open to the possibility of something extraordinary happening.
  • But I'm pretty secure about who I am. Anything that's truthful I'm not ashamed of.
  • When I do things that aren't very good, I'm worse as an actor. I don't know what I pick up - but it's something not very nice.
  • Without hammering you over the head with it, the movie gets you to ask questions. That's what good movies do.
  • [on being awarded the OBE in June 2010] The cherry on the cake and way beyond anything I would have imagined for myself.
  • Being a character actor, I can go on until I'm 70 or 80; I'm not bound to the way I look.
  • The repetition of the theatre means you've got the time to get deeply inside the person you're playing.
