  • Meanwhile the dreaded press and even in the unit publicist the unstoppable desire to compare one job with another—was X more difficult than Y? No, X=X and Y=Y. Don't be lazy.
  • I realise as soon as that [Snape's] ring and costume go on—something happens. It becomes alien to be chatty, smiley, open. The character narrows me down, tightens me up.

Quotes about Rickman[edit]

  • I'm pretty sure he came and saw everything I ever did on stage both in London and New York. He didn't have to do that.
