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.

I am a massive soccer fan- and it hurts my soul to call it soccer; it's football
