Oliver Stark Quotes

  • Blissfully ignorant confidence, where I just assumed I could be good at parkour got me the job in mind gamers.
  • I do like 80-90% of my own stunts, the more we are able to do, more it sells among the audience.
  • Sometimes it is smart to take the advice of stunts crew, sometimes your ego can get in your way sometimes.
  • I am a nice family man.
  • I am a man of peace, the world needs good-hearted people more than anything else.
  • Couple of years I was just worried I won't get roles. When I first started acting with big stars I was like a deer in the headlights.
  • I'd like Evan Peters to come and make an appearance on 9-1-1 show. Michael Shannon is another one I'd like to appear on 9-1-1. He can play my Dad (or brother)
  • Fight scenes are big (on money) and hard to get right.
  • I think every actor on every job has a different gateway into their part.
  • It is nice to be part of British films, I am a big fan and I want to support
  • A few months ago I was thinking of quitting acting. Hadn't worked in a year and I thought maybe my chance had gone. I started to look into becoming a fire-fighter. Now we are two days away from my new show airing- I play a fire-fighter. The universe is funny.
  • He promotes PETA online sometimes
  • He got American green card in November 2017.
  • I am a massive soccer fan- and it hurts my soul to call it soccer; it's football
  • I have gone through many different iterations of myself as an actor. I have done many things, I went through time where I was like 'I'm not gonna do any work, it's all gonna be instinct', not recommended. [3] 
  • I feel very much confident going into the auditions, but less confident going into the jobs. I'm much more nervous and insecure about jobs rather than auditions (He laughs) [3]
  • I spent my first 5-6 years- not at all being discerning about the script, I just wanted a job, now I'm able to look more and be able to consider. There are number of things I look now- Has it got a good message, not just my role but the script. [3]
  • I want to bring down that side of myself that is Ego [3]
  • I certainly see myself as my High school self, which was short (which I'm not btw), very skinny, had really bad acne, I haven't been able to shake this feeling off [3]
  • If you are not feeling good about what you are doing, work harder till you feel good about it [3]
  • Get out of your own head, stop standing in your own way [3]
  • I’ve been vegan four years. I’ve always made a point of not being preachy about it and simply sharing my experience when asked. However. The world is burning. Cutting out red meat and dairy from your diet is a huge step you can take. Not even fully vegan. Just one small step. [4]
  • Our planet could become close to uninhabitable for our grandkids. If there are any little day to day changes you can make that might increase the Earth’s chances- Now is the time. [5]
  • [About being Vegan & weight] Being plant based is not a surefire way to lose weight. You still have to make good choices [6] 
  • In acting, you can work the hardest and still not reach the top [3]
