When you are an actor, rejection and disappointment are an occupational hazard.

You want people to identify with the person on the screen or in the theater, but you don't want them to identify with you as a person.

All my good friends are actors, really. It's different when you have a family, but they're still the people I meet most often. My best friend is Ian Hart, but then I've known him since I was five.

As a director, your work is finished only when it's on the screen. But I will always be an actor who occasionally directs. And no, I have no interest in directing myself. I wouldn't be able to concentrate on both jobs at once.

I owe my mum a sense of family. She has kept our family together. I have two brothers and a sister, and they all live a stone's throw away from each other in Liverpool.

I think the corruption of power is very interesting, and I think the idea that power is something that... You know, when people want power, they're a certain individual. When people acquire power by accident, they're different again.

I'm the youngest of four kids. There's something in me that will always be the youngest child, will always look up to people when they don't necessarily need it.

The biggest difference between British TV and American TV is money. But what money doesn't do on American TV, which I thought it would, is buy you time. You don't get more time. You get more toys.

Tags: Money, Thought, Time

The great thing about coming from where I come from - Liverpool and my family - is that we're very close. I have a great relationship with my siblings and their kids.

Tags: Family, Great, Kids

The reason I wanted to start directing is that as an actor I felt I came into a job late. There's a whole team of people who have been working on it for months before you start. You have this really intense period of filming and then you leave it, knowing that the director will work on it for another few months.

When I told my parents I wanted to be an actor, it was like saying I wanted to be an astronaut. Not because it was highfalutin' in any way - just because they didn't know anybody in that field. They were anxious of a profession they knew nothing about.

All actors think every job will be their last.

Tags: Act, Else, Forget

I love telling stories. I like the challenges presented to me on a daily basis. There's nothing resting about acting.

Tags: Acting, Daily, Love

I think I'm quite a lazy person, actually. If I'm not careful, I could just stay in bed all day.

Tags: Actually, Lazy, Quite

I think when you don't know where you stand with someone, they can surprise you in their goodness and their badness, and that makes them human.

Tags: Human, Makes, Someone

I'd really like to get on a Greyhound bus and go backpacking across America.

Tags: Across, America, Bus

I'm a massive fan of Brit Art in general and Damien Hirst in particular. I think he's an absolute genius and should be celebrated in every way.

Tags: Art, General, Genius

I'm no good at down-time. I panic slightly and then plan a project or set up a meeting about starting a project.

Tags: Good, Meeting, Plan

It's always good to find out what you don't want to do.

Tags: Good

Liverpool has always made me brave, choice-wise. It was never a city that criticised anyone for taking a chance.

Tags: Anyone, Brave, Chance

Liverpool will always be my home.

Tags: Home, Liverpool

My house is very clean apart from a very small part of it that looks as if we've been burgled, which is my office.

Tags: House, Office, Small

My son got me into 'The Mighty Boosh.' I just love that surrealist humour.

Tags: Love, Mighty, Son

Nothing is my guiltiest pleasure. I love it. I love doing it. I love planning to do it, I love loafing and pottering and chilling and daydreaming.

Tags: Love, Planning, Pleasure

Savannah is amazing with the town squares and the hanging moss and the French Colonial houses. It's brutally romantic.

Tags: Amazing, Romantic, Town

The great thing about being an actor is things happen to you very quickly. I like to put myself in the way of surprise.

Tags: Great, Happen, Put

The thing as an actor is you get a sense of what a show is like the minute you walk on the set.

Tags: Sense, Show, Walk

Start living now. Stop saving the good china for that special occasion. Stop withholding your love until that special person materializes. Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is a gift from God.

Tags: God, Good, Love

You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith.

Tags: Dream, Faith, Fear

Have you ever struggled to find work or love, only to find them after you have given up? This is the paradox of letting go. Let go, in order to achieve. Letting go is God's law.

Tags: God, Love, Work

Don't wait for something big to occur. Start where you are, with what you have, and that will always lead you into something greater.

Deep down, I know that I am a child of God who has inherited divine capacities; some of them I strive to develop, others are left languishing. I also have a human side. I lose my temper, lose patience and sometimes judge others and myself.

Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?

Tags: Fear, Hurt, Life

God intended Earth. God intended the waters. God intended you and me. We were created in the image and the likeness of God; we are holograms, if you will. So the power, the presence, the energy is within you and me. The energy of God, as life, is within each of us.

Tags: God, Life, Power

I learned a long time ago that if I really wanted to bring my ideas into experience, I needed to write down my intentions. When you put pen to paper, you have little choice but to get specific. The actual process of forming your thoughts into words on a page is a creative act, a genesis, moving energy toward the very thing you want to experience.
