quotes by The Princes Bride

“I love you,’ Buttercup said. ‘I know this must come as something of a surprise to you, since all I’ve ever done is scorn you and degrade you and taunt you, but I have loved you for several hours now, and every second, more. I thought an hour ago that I loved you more than any woman has ever loved a man, but a half hour after that I knew that what I felt before was nothing compared to what I felt then. But ten minutes after that, I understood that my previous love was a puddle compared to the high seas before a storm. Your eyes are like that, did you know? Well they are. How many minutes ago was I? Twenty? Had I brought my feelings up to then? It doesn’t matter.’ Buttercup still could not look at him. The sun was rising behind her now; she could feel the heat on her back, and it gave her courage. ‘I love you so much more now than twenty minutes ago that there cannot be comparison. I love you so much more now then when you opened your hovel door, there cannot be comparison. There is no room in my body for anything but you. My arms love you, my ears adore you, my knees shake with blind affection. My mind begs you to ask it something so it can obey. Do you want me to follow you for the rest of your days? I will do that. Do you want me to crawl? I will crawl. I will be quiet for you or sing for you, or if you are hungry, let me bring you food, or if you have thirst and nothing will quench it but Arabian wine, I will go to Araby, even though it is across the world, and bring a bottle back for your lunch. Anything there is that I can do for you, I will do for you; anything there is that I cannot do, I will learn to do. I know I cannot compete with the Countess in skills or wisdom or appeal, and I saw the way she looked at you. And I saw the way you looked at her. But remember, please, that she is old and has other interests, while I am seventeen and for me there is only you. Dearest Westley–I’ve never called you that before, have I?–Westley, Westley, Westley, Westley, Westley,–darling Westley, adored Westley, sweet perfect Westley, whisper that I have a chance to win your love.’ And with that, she dared the bravest thing she’d ever done; she looked right into his eyes.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Nonsense. You’re only saying that because no one ever has.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

Life is not fair, and it never has been, and it’s never going to be.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

quotes about love

“It was only when the giant got halfway down the incline that he suddenly, happily, burst into flame and continued his trip saying, “NO SURVIVORS, NO SURVIVORS!” in a manner that could only indicate deadly sincerity.

“Everyone had told her, since she became a princess-in-training, that she was very likely the most beautiful woman in the world. Now she was going to be the richest and the most powerful as well.
Don’t expect too much from life, Buttercup told herself as she rode along. Learn to be satisfied with what you have.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Flailing and thrashing, Buttercup wept and tossed and paced and wept some more, and there have been three great cases of jealousy since David of Galilee was first afflicted with the emotion when he could no longer stand the fact that his neighbor Saul’s cactus outshone his own. (Originally, jealousy pertained solely to plants, other people’s cactus or ginkgoes, or, later, when there was grass, grass, which is why, even to this day, we say that someone is green with jealousy.) Buttercup’s case rated a close fourth on the all-time list.
It was a very long and very green night.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“It was seeing him happily burning and advancing that startled the Brute Squad to screaming. And once that happened, why, everybody panicked and ran…” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“I just know once you’re over your emotional outbursts, you’ll come up with-‘
I mean if we even had a wheelbarrow, that would be something,’ Westley said.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Westley and I are joined by the bond of love and you cannot track that, not with a thousand bloodhounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“The boys. The beef-witted featherbrained rattleskulled clod-pated dim-domed noodle-noggined sapheaded lunk-knobbed boys. How could anybody accuse her of stealing them? Why would anybody want them anyway?” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Westly, Westly, Westly, Westly, Westly,–darling Westly, adored Westly, sweet perfect Westly, whisper that I have a chance to win your love.” And with that, she dared the bravest thing she’d ever done: she looked right into his eyes.
He closed the door in her face.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Inconceivable!” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Enough about my beauty,” Buttercup said. “Everybody always talks about how beautiful I am. I’ve got a mind, Westley. Talk about that.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“I love you. Okay? Want it louder? I LOVE YOU. Spell it out, should I? I ell-oh-vee-ee why-oh-you. Want it backward? You love I.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“While he was watching the ships, Buttercup shoved him with all her strength remaining. Down went the man in black. “You can die too for all I care,” she said, and then she turned away.
Words followed her. Whispered from afar, weak and warm and familiar. “As…you…wish…” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Tr…ooooo…luv…’
Fezzik grabbed onto Inigo in panic and they both pivoted, staring at the man in black, who was silent again. ‘”True love,” he said,’ Inigo cried. ‘You heard him – true love is what he wants to come back for. That’s certainly worthwhile.’
‘Sonny, don’t you tell me what’s worthwhile – true love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops. Everybody knows that.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Well, I’m an abridger, so I’m entitled to a few ideas of my own. Did they make it? Was the pirate ship there? You can answer it for yourself, but, for me, I say yes it was. And yes, they got away. And got their strength back and had lots of adventures and more than their share of laughs.
But that doesn’t mean I think they had a happy ending, either. Because, in my opinion, anyway, they squabbled a lot, and Buttercup lost her looks eventually, and one day Fezzik lost a fight and some hot-shot kid whipped Inigo with a sword and Westley was never able to really sleep sound because of Humperdinck maybe being on the trail.
I’m not trying to make this a downer, understand. I mean, I really do think that love is the best thing in the world, next to cough drops. But I also have to say, for the umpty-umpth time, that life isn’t fair. It’s just fairer than death, that’s all.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Inigo was in despair.
.
Hard to find on the map (this was after maps) not because cartographers didn’t know of its existence, but because when they visited to measure its precise dimensions, they became so depressed they began to drink and question everything, most notably why anyone would want to be something as stupid as a cartographer. It required constant travel, no one ever knew your name, and, most of all, why bother? There grew up, then, a gentleman’s agreement among mapmakers of the period to keep the place as secret as possible, lest tourists flock there and die. (Should you insist on paying a visit, it’s closer to the Baltic States than most places.)” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“I mean if we even had a wheelbarrow, that would be something.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Let’s look on the bright side: we’re having an adventure, Fezzik, and most people live and die without being as lucky as we are.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“The hollowness was in his arms and the world was snowing.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

quotes from the Princess Bride

“Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

quotes about death line

“When was the last time you read a book? The truth now. And picture books don’t count-I mean something with print in it.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“I guess the most amazing thing about crying though is that when you’re in it, you think it’ll go on forever but it never really lasts half what you think. Not in terms of real time. In terms of real emotions, it’s worse than you think, but not by the clock.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Buttercup’s mother hesitated, then put her stew spoon down. (This was after stew, but so is everything. When the first man first clambered from the slime and made his first home on land, what he had for supper that first night was stew.)” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Westley closed his eyes. There was pain coming and he had to be ready for it. He had to prepare his brain, he had to get his mind controlled and safe from their efforts, so that they could not break him. He would not let them break him. He would hold together against anything and all. If only they gave him sufficient time to make ready, he knew he could defeat pain. It turned out they gave him sufficient time (it was months before the Machine was ready).
.
But they broke him anyway.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Inside and out, Westley’s world was ripping apart and he could do nothing but crack along with it.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Life is pain. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

short quotes about life

“The tears that kept Buttercup company the remainder of the day were not at all like those that had blinded her into the tree trunk. Those were noisy and hot; they pulsed. These were silent and steady and all they did was remind her that she wasn’t good enough. She was seventeen, and every male she’d ever known had crumbled at her feet and it meant nothing. The one time it really mattered, she wasn’t good enough.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“He was the mighty Fezzik, lover of rhymes, and you did not give up, no matter what.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

Princess bride quotes

“There have been five great kisses since 1642 B.C. when Saul and Delilah Korn’s inadvertent discovery swept across Western civilization. (Before then couples hooked thumbs.) And the precise rating of kisses is a terribly difficult thing, often leading to great controversy, because although everyone agrees with the formula of affection times purity times intensity times duration, no one has ever been completely satisfied with how much weight each element should receive. But on any system, there are five that everyone agrees deserve full marks. Well, this one left them all behind.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“I mean, I really do think that love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops. But I also have to say, for the umpty-umpth time, that life isn’t fair. It’s just fairer than death, that’s all.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“I can’t keep my head above water one minute to the next: it’s not just the parties and the goo-gooing with what’s-her-name, I’ve got the decide how long the Five Hundredth Anniversary Parade is going to be and where does it start and when does it start and which nobleman gets to march in front of which other nobleman so that everyone’s still speaking to me at the end of it, plus I’ve got a wife to murder and a country to frame for it, plus I’ve got to get the war going once that’s all happened, and all this is stuff I’ve got to do myself. Here’s what it all comes down to: I’m just swamped, Ty.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Dummy, dummy, go out now and fill your tummy.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Fool!” cried the hunchback. “You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is ‘Never get involved in a land war in Asia,’ but only slightly less well known is this: ‘Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Have fun storming the castle!” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“You mock my pain! Life is pain, anyone who says otherwise is obviously selling something!” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Do you love me, Westley? Is that it?’
He couldn’t believe it. ‘Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches. If your love were-‘
‘I don’t understand the first one yet,’ Buttercup interrupted. She was starting to get very excited now. ‘Let me get this straight. Are you saying my love is the size of a grain of sand and yours is this other thing? Images just confuse me so-is this universal business of yours bigger than my sand? Help me, Westley. I have the feeling we’re on the verge of something just terribly important.’
‘I have stayed these years in my hovel because of you. I have taught myself languages because of you. I have made my body strong because I thought you might be pleased by a strong body. I have lived my life with only the prayer that some sudden dawn you might glance in my direction. I have not known a moment in years when the sight of you did not send my heart careening against my rib cage. I have not known a night when your visage did not accompany me to sleep. There has not been a morning when you did not flutter behind my waking eyelids….Is any of this getting through to you, Buttercup, or do you want me to go on for a while?’
‘Never stop.’
‘There has not been-‘
‘If you’re teasing me, Westley, I’m just going to kill you.’
‘How can you even dream I might be teasing?’
‘Well, you haven’t once said you loved me.’
‘That’s all you need? Easy. I love you. Okay? Want it louder? I love you. Spell it out, should I? I ell-oh-vee-ee why-oh-you. Want it backward? You love I.’
‘You are teasing now; aren’t you?’
‘A little maybe; I’ve been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn’t listen. Every time you said ‘Farm boy do this’ you thought I was answering ‘As you wish’ but that’s only because you were hearing wrong. ‘I love you’ was what it was, but you never heard, and you never heard.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“You are trying to kidnap what I have rightfully stolen, and I think it quite ungentlemanly.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“You think this is a trap then?” the Count asked.
“I always think everything is a trap until proven otherwise,” the Prince answered. “Which is why I’m still alive.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“People don’t remember me. Really. It’s not a paranoid thing; I just have this habit of slipping through memories. It doesn’t bother me all that much, except I guess that’s a lie; it does. For some reason, I test very high on forgettability.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“I could give you my word as a Spaniard,” Inigo said. Princess Bride Quotes
“No good,” the man in black replied. “I’ve known too many Spaniards.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“She loves you,” the Prince cried. “She loves you still and you love her, so think of that–think of this too: in all this world, you might have been happy, genuinely happy. Not one couple in a century has that chance, not really, no matter what the storybooks say, but you could have had it, and so, I would think, no one will ever suffer a loss as great as you.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Buttercup’s mother whirled on him. ‘Did you forget to pay your taxes?’ (This was after taxes. But everything is after taxes. Taxes were here even before stew.)” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Liar! Liar!” shrieked suddenly from the now open trap door.
Miracle Max whirled. “Back, Witch–” he commanded.
“I’m not a witch, I’m your wife–” she was advancing on him now, an ancient tiny fury–“and after what you’ve just done I don’t think I want to be that any more–” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“The enemy is always in the mind.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

short quotes by William Goldman

“I must be overtired’, Buttercup managed. ‘The excitement and all.’
‘Rest then’, her mother cautioned. ‘Terrible things can happen when you’re overtired. I was overtired the night your father proposed.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride , Princess Bride Quotes

“I’m going to tell you something once and then whether you die is strictly up to you,” Westley said, lying pleasantly on the bed. “What I’m going to tell you is this: drop your sword, and if you do, then I will leave with this baggage here”-he glanced at Buttercup-“and you will be tied up but not fatally, and will be free to go about your business. And if you choose to fight, well, then, we will not both leave alive.” Princess Bride Quotes
.
You are only alive now because you said ‘to the pain.’ I want that phrase explained.”
.
My pleasure. To the pain means this: if we duel and you win, death for me. If we duel and I win, life for you. But life on my terms. The first thing you lose will be your feet. Below the ankle. You will have stumps available to use within six months. Then your hands, at the wrists. They heal somewhat quicker. Five months is a fair average. Next your nose. No smell of dawn for you. Followed by your tongue. Deeply cut away. Not even a stump left. And then your left eye-“
.
And then my right eye, and then my ears, and shall we get on with it?” the Prince said.
.
Wrong!” Westley’s voice rang across the room. “Your ears you keep, so that every shriek of every child shall be yours to cherish-every babe that weeps in fear at your approach, every woman that cries ‘Dear God, what is that thing?’ will reverberate forever with your perfect ears. That is what ‘to the pain’ means. It means that I leave you in anguish, in humiliation, in freakish misery until you can stand it no more; so there you have it, pig, there you know, you miserable vomitous mass, and I say this now, and live or die, it’s up to you: Drop your sword!”
.
The sword crashed to the floor.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“The Prince found Buttercup waiting unhappily outside his chamber doors.
It’s my letter,’ she began. ‘I cannot make it right.’
Come in, come in,’ the Prince said gently. ‘Maybe we can help you.’ She sat down in the same chair as before. ‘All right, I’ll close my eyes and listen; read to me.’
Westley, my passion, my sweet, my only my own. Come back, come back. I shall kill myself otherwise. Yours in torment, Buttercup.’ She looked at Humperdinck. ‘Well? Do you think I’m throwing myself at him?” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“And when she at last came out, her eyes were dry. Her parents stared up from their silent breakfast at her. They both started to rise but she put a hand out, stopped them. ‘I can care for myself, please,’ and she set about getting some food. They watched her closely.
In point of fact, she had never looked as well. She had entered her room as just an impossibly lovely girl. The woman who emerged was a trifle thinner, a great deal wiser, and an ocean sadder. This one understood the nature of pain, and beneath the glory of her features, there was character, and a sure knowledge of suffering.
She was eighteen. She was the most beautiful woman in a hundred years. She didn’t seem to care.
‘You’re all right?’ her mother asked.
Buttercup sipped her cocoa. ‘Fine,’ she said.
‘You’re sure?’ her father wondered.
‘Yes,’ Buttercup replied. There was a very long pause. ‘But I must never love again.’
.
She never did.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.” William Goldman , The Princess Bride

“Look. (Grown-ups skip this paragraph) I’m not about to tell you this book has a tragic ending. I already said in the very first line how it was my favorite in all the world. But there’s a lot of bad stuff coming. ” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“I must court her now,’ said the Prince. ‘Leave us alone for a minute.’ He rode the white expertly down the hill.
Buttercup had never seen such a giant beast. Or such a rider.
‘I am your Prince and you will marry me,’ Humperdinck said.
Buttercup whispered, ‘I am your servant and I refuse.’
‘I am your Prince and you cannot refuse.’
‘I am your loyal servant and I just did.’
‘Refusal means death.’
‘Kill me then.’
‘I am your Prince and I’m not that bad – how could you rather be dead than married to me?’
‘Because,’ Buttercup said, ‘marriage involves love, and that is not a pastime at which I excel. I tried once, and it went badly, and I am sworn never to love another.’
‘Love?’ said Prince Humperdinck. ‘Who mentioned love? Not me, I can tell you. Look: there must always be a male heir to the throne of Florin. That’s me. Once my father dies, there won’t be an heir, just a king. That’s me again. When that happens, I’ll marry and have children until there is a son. So you can either marry me and be the richest and most powerful woman in a thousand miles and give turkeys away at Christmas and provide me a son, or you can die in terrible pain in the very near future. Make up your own mind.’
‘I’ll never love you.’
‘I wouldn’t want it if I had it.’
‘Then by all means let us marry.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Existence was really very simple when you did what you were told.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride , Princess Bride Quotes

“I have stayed these years in my hovel because of you. I have taught myself languages because of you. I have made my body strong because I thought you might be pleased by a strong body. I have lived my life with only the prayer that some sudden dawn you might glance in my direction. I have not known a moment in years when the sight of you did not send my heart careening against my rib cage. I have not known a night when your visage did not accompany me to sleep. There has not been a morning when you did not flutter behind my waking eyelids.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“See?” Fezzik pointed then. Far down, at the very bottom of the mountain path, the man in black could be seen running. “Inigo is beaten.”
Inconceivable!” exploded the Sicilian.
Fezzik never dared disagree with the hunchback. “I’m so stupid,” Fezzik nodded. “Inigo has not lost to the man in black, he has defeated him. And to prove it he has put on all the man in black’s clothes and masks and hoods and boots and gained eighty pounds.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“There’s a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“You could concentrate much more deeply when you were alone with agony.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“Inigo Montoya: He’s right on top of us. I wonder if he is using the same wind we are using.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride , Princess Bride Quotes

“I don’t like killing a girl,” the Spaniard said.
“God does it all the time; if it doesn’t bother Him, don’t let it worry you.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“And what have I done?”
What? WHAT?…You’ve stolen them.”
With that, Cornelia fled, but Buttercup understood; she knew who “them” was.
The boys.
The beef-witted featherbrained rattledskulled clodpated dim-domed noodle-noggined sapheaded lunk-knobbed BOYS.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“I say you are a coward and you are; I think you hunt only to reassure yourself that you are not what you are: the weakest thing to ever walk the Earth. He will come for me and then we will be gone, and you will be helpless for all your hunting, because Westley and I are joined by the bond of love and you cannot track that, not with a thousand bloodhounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride , Princess Bride Quotes

Callum Turner Quotes

“I watched ‘Free Willy’ probably 100 times. I nearly wore out the VHS tape. That movie was my introduction to Michael Madsen. When I finally saw ‘Reservoir Dogs’, I was like, ‘That’s the guy from ‘Free Willy’!’ – which is probably the wrong way around.”

“I hate horror movies. I get really scared, and I don’t want to be scared. I don’t know why, but I’m one of those people who gets frightened and can’t go to sleep.”

“Al Pacino, De Niro, Daniel Day Lewis – they’re the best out there because everything they do comes from a very honest place.”

“I play Theseus Scamander, Newt’s older brother. He’s risen through the ranks of the establishment insanely quickly and he’s the Head Auror. And he’s trying to save the world in the way that he thinks best, which is through the establishment, through laws. And he’s trying to recruit his brother, slightly overbearingly.”

“I never went to drama school. It’s a brilliant thing for the right type of person, but I threw myself in the deep end.”

“I played semi-professionally for a season, and there’s an element of performance to being a footballer, stepping onto the pitch: you feel like a gladiator walking into a colosseum.”

“Imagining what a character will do in a given situation – it’s like an equation, and working it out is a marathon rather than a sprint.”

“The worst costume is when you don’t have a costume.”

“I think it’s [Theseus and Newt’s relationship] born out of love. Theseus is the complete opposite to Newt – he’s the Head Auror at the Ministry of Magic, he’s an establishment man, he’s risen through the ranks very quickly. Newt’s completely different, he’s Nomadic, he’s out there and Theseus is worried about him, he wants him to be part of the society that he’s risen through and also there’s a crisis coming. Boiling point is about to reach and he wants him to come and fight with him. So he’s trying to protect him rather than push him away or anything and actually that’s the opposite – Newt’s not a hugger, is he, no, and Theseus has kind of got him like that [in a tight hug], and that’s not going to work. He’s got to change his tactics. I think if they both, the similarities between the two is that they’re both incredibly stubborn, true to who they are and I think that’s their lesson, if they loosen up a little bit, if they’re a little bit more free-flowing, then they will come [together].”

“I’ve become an actor rather than trying to be one, if that makes sense.”

“It’s cool to be nervous, and how the nerves come out sideways. That’s why some actors scream their heads off, or it comes out in their hair.”

“15 people in a room looking at you with no clothes on – that’s a little weird.”

“I played tennis at underneath – Brooklyn Bridge? Manhattan Bridge? Williamsburg Bridge? There are courts on the Manhattan side.”

“I also think there are four love stories in this [film] and I think that that one [Dumbledore and Grindelwald] is the deepest, the purest love and the others just don’t come close.”

“It is complicated but I think that the important thing to realise is that it wasn’t a full relationship. It was a companionship at school and I think he’s of the understanding that it wasn’t as severe as it’s being made out now [in the media]. And he provides something for her that Newt doesn’t, with their similarities, Newt and Leta. Theseus is the complete opposite to both of them and provides a stability and an acceptance and love and a support that is needed in a relationship and they both give it to each other. And he’s risen to the top of the ranks at the Ministry, he’s the Head Auror, and is fighting the good fight in the way he knows how. He’s incredibly stubborn and wants his brother, who he understands to be a more powerful, special wizard, to join the fight on his side, through the establishment, which obviously Newt is repelled by.”

“I guess from Theseus’ point of view, it [Newt & Leta’s history] wasn’t as big of a deal as it’s being made out in the press. There’s something there, but as long as it’s done, it’s my brother and it’s all clear, I think he’s okay with that.”

Katie Mcgrath Quotes

“It’s not an understatement to say that I owe everything as an actor to ‘Merlin.’ It was pretty much my first job, and I didn’t know what I was doing for many years on it. It wasn’t until the third and fourth series – the fourth series especially – that I really found my feet with the character, and as an actress.”

“I had this vague notion that one day I might be editor of ‘Vogue China.’ It was a bizarre ambition, as I didn’t speak a word of Chinese. There were flaws in my plan, admittedly.”

“My mum’s amazing – every time I achieve something in my career, she buys me a diamond earring.”

“I spend a lot of time on eBay buying vintage. I also really like Alexander Wang, Miu Miu, Vivienne Westwood, McQueen and Balmain.”

“I grew up in a small town in Ireland and didn’t know any actors. I never thought it was a viable job. It wasn’t until I was on ‘The Tudors’ that I realised it was a possibility.”

“No actor can play a villain if they don’t sympathise with him or her – otherwise the character just becomes a two-dimensional caricature.”

Katie Mcgrath Quotes

“I can’t watch most of my work. Once I come on screen, all I can think of is ‘What am I doing with my hands?’ or ‘Why did I lean that way?’ or ‘What’s that look on my face?’ It’s too difficult to not focus on evaluating my acting.”

“Working crew made me realise that the actors are a very small part of a very big machine, with each part being vital to make the show work. It so important to remember that it’s not about you, it’s about the show, and working crew hammered that point home to me.”

“I don’t get recognized in England. Not at all. Every so often, I get recognized in other countries.”

“I am really terrible when it comes to guys. Inside, I just see myself as this overweight tomboy with funny-coloured hair and bad skin.”

“I’m a very ambitious girl. I’ll go wherever there is a good part.”

“I get sent lots of jewellery by fans, and that’s absolutely lovely.”

“My friend once sculpted me a bust of Admiral Ackbar from ‘Star Wars.’ He’s my favourite character in the films after Han Solo. He’s that goldfish-type alien in the white costume. ‘It’s a trap!”‘ I’m a big geek.

“I loved every minute of working in wardrobe. But I love being an actress so much more. I don’t think I was very good in costume, so it’s better that I prefer being an actress.”

“It’s like running away to join the circus, everyone wants to do it when they’re young but then you grow up and get a proper job. But somebody’s got to do it or you wouldn’t have the circus.”

“I was looking at these actresses sort of sitting around under umbrellas, people bringing them cold drinks and I was like, ‘That looks so much easier than what I’m doing’ and I was so wrong.”

“I was a strange child. I was the kid with funny hair listening to dodgy music […] I’d come in with my hoodie and skate-shoes, with purple hair under the hood. I got away with it because I spent all my time in the art room, so they figured I was ‘artistic’. I was that kind of kid, listening to Green Day and the Deftones and all that kind of thing.”

“I went through a real punk stage-I had braids, red hair, pink hair, green hair, I cut it into a Mohawk, the lot. Then about five years ago, I dyed it dark and stayed out of the sun to get pale, because I hated looking like everyone else, all blonde hair and tanned skin.”

“The first thing I ever wanted to be was a backup singer for Guns ‘n’ Roses.”

“I go for really smart guys, ones who are well-read and can banter and argue. Men need to be able to take me out and have a few drinks, but by the end of the night we’ll be talking about Nietzsche.”

“I want to have a little toy version of Morgana. I can then show it to my grandchildren one day. So I can say I used to have a waist.”

“So I can say I used to have a waist.”

“I don’t like pink and I am not into girlie stuff, bows and frills, sugary looking things.”

“One thing I’ve always thought about Morgana is that she’s sort of a modern mind in a period body. She’s not your usual warm princess, which is what drew me to her in the first place.”

“I have always said the success of the show has stemmed from our audience being able to relate to the characters on different levels – being based on the universally loved Arthurian legend is only a tiny part of its success – it’s a story about acceptance and growing up. The breathtaking finale of this series leaves you with no doubt that characters have been on their journeys and had their stories told – it’s completely the right time to draw our telling of the story to a close. “

“I hadn’t acted much. I’d been in school plays, but I wasn’t a drama-school kid and my family aren’t performers.” – Tribune Magazine, December 2008

“Every now and again I’m standing in a corridor asking myself ‘Is this real?’ If you had told me that every day I get into this dress and watch sword fighting and dragons, I’d have thought you were mad.” – BBC, September 2008

“I wasn’t the biggest fan of college because I was so desperate to get started on life. I went for four years but I never really physically went. I’d turn up to hand in my essays but that was about it.” – Tribune Magazine, December 2008

“Being an actress was kind of like when you’re a kid, and you want to run away and join the circus, it’s something you really want to do, but then you grew up and got a proper job. It was a dream, but I didn’t think it would ever be reality, and yet here I am!.”

“Even the world’s most successful individuals like Katie McGrath have experienced their fair share of setbacks and hardships. And there’s much to learn from their challenges as well as their success.”

“[on her quick success as an actress]: It was a bit cheeky, granted. What happened was that I obviously knew all the [The Tudors (2007)] crew well, and one of the drivers gave me a confidential cast list with all the actors’ agents’ details on it, and I wrote to them. I got picked up from that, and Merlin (2008) came along just a few months later. So I won the lottery! I do feel quite bad when everyone talks about how difficult it is to get a foothold in this [acting] business. Most actors slog for years. For instance, everyone on Merlin (2008) did four years at drama school, but I just lucked out.”

“I’m not a high-maintenance person.”

Antony Starr – a great actor – stared this job in 1990. He showed his acting performance in all three series of ‘Mercy Peak’.

Most of Antony Starr quotes are motivational quotes. Check out the collection of Antony Starr quotes:

Antony Starr Quotes

“There has to be an element of repetition for TV… You want people to be addicted to your show, and the way to get people addicted is not to give it to them once, but to give it to them a few times, until they get on board with it. It’s just about finding that balance of the necessary repetition and making the things that are repetitive absolutely necessary while keeping everything else fresh.” Antony Starr

“Sport is imposing order on what was chaos.” Antony Starr

“Collaboration is the best way to work. It’s only way to work, really.” Antony Starr

“Families are the deepest, most screwed up relationships that we have.” Antony Starr

“I dont know any people that like watching themselves. I prefer not to.” Antony Starr

“I did martial arts and karate for eight years when I was growing up.” Antony Starr

“Oftentimes, you read these pilot scripts that come through for American work, and they dont sing to you. Ive got to be honest, not many of them ignite the flame or give you that burning feeling of, Oh, God, I really want to be a part of this.” Antony Starr

“I had a job when I was 15 working at a supermarket, and I knocked over a stack of plastic coffee cups. In my anger, I threw one at a concrete wall, and it rebounded back into my head and cut my head open. Stupidest way to get a scar, but its one that I have.” Antony Starr

“Collaboration is the best way to work. It’s the only way to work, really. Everyone’s there because they have a set of skills to offer across the board.” Antony Starr

“Ive always had this rule of thumb: If you have fun making it, then someone will have fun watching it.” Antony Starr

“We’re dependent on buying overseas productions and television shows. A lot of the time they come in packages, I think. You take the hit show and you take a couple of other unloved children that they want to get rid of along with the hit show.” Antony Starr

“When you can’t fix all your problems with your fists and the problems aren’t solely physical, and you’ve got to deal with the emotional complexities of life and people, it’s a really interesting development.” Antony Starr

“A lot of people that get out of prison have anti-social personality disorder, which makes them promiscuous and erratic, and they can’t form ordinary relationships.” Antony Starr

“Shooting of a sex scene is never going to something where you’re having a wonderful time. It’s a very intimate thing and a very intimate space to be put into – that’s usually a space reserved for one. To have someone else in that proximity is pretty jarring, but we’re all in the same boat and we’re all experiencing the same anxieties.” Antony Starr

“Unfortunately part of pulp is that there is sex, there is violence. It’s not a kids’ show. It’s an 18-and-over audience – like anything cable. I see some things in Game of Thrones that turn my hair gray. It’s the way the industry has gone.” Antony Starr

“I think the film and TV industry – the acting world – has a tendency to attract a lot of people for the wrong reasons; reasons that are less than artistic. It has a tendency to be pretty superficial, and pretty shallow and fake. I think what New Zealanders and Australians – and the English, I guess – have to offer is that we don’t carry a lot of that baggage. We come over and we’re pretty grounded. But on the flip side of that, you end up in a very unfamiliar environment being treated in a way that’s a little bit surreal.” Antony Starr

“The American accent is a little bit tricky. We grew up with American TV shows, so we’ve had a lot of exposure to it and that helps, but there’s little nuances and little details. Sometimes there’ll be just a phrase or couple words that are really difficult to get your mouth around. At the end of every season we go over and revoice anything that has sound issues, including my kiwi accent coming out.” Antony Starr

“People, when they get out of a long stretch of prison, are completely mal-adapted to society. Comfort for them is when there is a threat.” Antony Starr

“I don’t mind violence, but it’s quite an interesting thing for people to deal with. I don’t know many people that like fighting. I certainly don’t, myself. But it’s always interesting to work on a shows where there’s so much violence, as a part of the world.” Antony Starr

“I used to try and do backflips a lot, but I used to bang my head more often than not, so I gave it up.” – Antony Starr

“My first car was a Holden Commodore station wagon. I can’t remember much more about it than that – it was coffee-colored, and I think it was four cylinders, so it was really quite weak, but very safe for a young man to be driving.” – Antony Starr

“We all like going to the dark side of things; we all like dipping into worlds that we don’t know anything about, or hopefully don’t know anything about. I think ‘Banshee’ gives people a chance to do that pretty safely because we all know there’s a solid buffer between the show and reality.” – Antony Starr

“I keep myself to myself pretty much. I’m not someone who gallivants around town looking for attention.” – Antony Starr

“Inevitably any series that goes on too long will reach a point where it starts struggling for ideas, so I’ve always been really aware of getting out while the going’s good.” – Antony Starr

“There’s a difference between knowing what to do when you’re rehearsing it and being able to do it once you’re adrenalized and emotional. That’s when the injuries occur. Actors all want to try to pretend that they’re experts at everything, but we’re not.” – Antony Starr

“Banshee’ is the story of a man who gets out of prison, tracks down his long-lost love, and tries to reclaim what was stolen from him years earlier by assuming the identity of a sheriff. I guess you could say it’s an explosive action-drama – sit down, strap in, and enjoy the ride!” – Antony Starr

“I was told to have an ice bath once, which I did once, and it was the most horrific experience. In my head it sounded like a great idea, so I filled my bath with ice and water, and it was absolutely horrendous.” – Antony Starr

“No one in ‘Banshee’ has small opinions. They have strong beliefs, and they will defend them ferociously. Having that element in the show just adds another level. It’s another avenue for story, and it enriches the world.” – Antony Starr

“There are some people that just attract violence to them. No matter where they go, they’ll find a fight.” Antony Starr

Reading the Antony Starr quotes at EpicPhrase is really a great way to get more charge of motivation in the lives. Don’t hesitate to share these quotes with your family and friends.
