Quotes

#Quote
1I'd like to be an academic, a philosophy lecturer if possible. I'd do a Masters in Ancient Hebrew maybe, and a Ph.D. hopefully, if I get in.
2Both villains and heroes need to have a steadfast belief in themselves.
3I think audiences will always like bad guys who kill for no apparent reason. We just like to hate them.
4I'm happy to sacrifice a big pay cheque for my happiness, if that's not too corny a thing to say. It's probably more naive than mature to say that, maybe, but that's how I feel.
