Memorable Quotes by Rupert Evans

“ What makes a man a man? It's the choices he makes. Not how he starts things but how he finishes them. ”

“ Essentially, I never know what I'm going to do until I read the script, but a good story is a good story. I would like to do more modern stuff, but ultimately, it doesn't matter to me — good stories are timeless. ”

“ When I was 15, I went on a cricket tour of Zimbabwe with my school. My defining memory of it was stroking a semi-tame lioness at a game reserve. I grew up on a farm, so I felt I had an affinity with animals, and when it put a paw out, I thought I'd connected with it. But its claws came out and nicked my leg. Then I did the most stupid thing: I ran. ”

“ On his favorite James Bond gadget: I always loved Live and Let Die (1973), when Roger Moore undid the zip on Miss Caruso's dress with his magnetic watch. I was a big watch freak as a kid and loved Casios with calculators on. I definitely got that from Bond. ”

“ I always think people who stretch themselves are interesting. That's something to admire, isn't it? ”

“ Our work, particularly in film and television, has become more and more last minute, so technology is vital. It has made us much more flexible. I've reduced my paper output massively by reading scripts on iPad. Researching roles, especially historical ones, is a lot easier online. I've just done Lucan on ITV, so spent a lot of time surfing the web, reading up on my character, painter Dominick Elwes. Auditioning over Skype is becoming a lot more common too. My latest job was Rogue, an American cop drama with T'handie Newton', and I had to do a Skype meeting with the showrunner for that. ”
