Memorable Quotes by Kevin Durand
[on filming Robin Hood] “I think the most memorable moment for me was: Russell and I galloped up to the base of this castle that they built and he said, 'Take a good look at that castle and remember it, because they may not make movies like this anymore.'”
“I did stand-up for a long time, and I did classical theater. As much time as you could spend on a stage will always inform you and your job, as you evolve. I feel the freedom of being able to find comedy in the darkest moments because it makes it way more interesting, I think.”
“I started off as a rapper from Thunder Bay, Ontario, believe it or not. There was a little group of 10 or 12 of us that would get together and copy each other's cassettes. So I was a rapper first, and it was that music that got me into this great entertainment world and got me out of Thunder Bay.”
“I'm always excited to carry more and more weight and responsibility within a story.”
“I was a hockey player growing up. Being a big guy and being imposing, I had to use my size to protect my teammates.”
