Paul Anderson: Quotes

  • I like playing the bad guys, you know it is fun.
  • Canada was freezing cold, up in the mountains, if you were cold you just had to sit there and bear it.
  • When I watch the film I want to ring my phone and share that experience, I want people to get the feel when they see my movies, the urge to see great movies.
  • When I first heard the title "Peaky Blinder" I thought it was a musical. It is great how people took it.
  • I don't gonna lie, when I read the script (of peaky blinder) I cried a little.
  • Haircut is a hard thing to wear
  • I have few options, it is a nice place to be as an actor
  • [About Ticket Scalping] I loved it. A wealth of experience. Artistically, there was nothing in it for me, I always wanted to do something else.
  • I always wanted to be a front man in a band, Not a footballer, not an actor, not a policeman nor a fireman
  • I left school when I was about 14, so there was a large gap in my education. Going to drama school was like university that I never had.  
  • I knew a lot of 60s gangster. It wasn't hard for me to replicate the vernacular and the vocabulary on screen.
  • My older brother has a big say in what I do and what is good and what is not. Sometimes he has too much of a say in it
  • Brutal & Violent characters are the most interesting roles to play, there is so much scope in playing those roles.
  • It was a pleasure to play Arthur Shelby. Much better than playing the nice guy.
  • I do play a lot of darker characters, I am drawn to them
  • You always have that insecurity as an actor
