Ioan Gruffudd Quotes

You're always going to be more judgmental about your own performance than anyone else.
I've been brought up with the Christian faith with my family.
To be honest, I think that I am a bit of a singer, coming from Wales; being Welsh, we are all very proud of our singing heritage.
I'm really enjoying living in Los Angeles. It's a great city to live in. I'm living a very suburban domesticated lifestyle out there - a two bedroomed little bungalow with two cars, and we're just driving around, going to meetings here and there - it's lovely!

I love doing kids' films.
Being attractive, it's not something I do consciously. It's incredibly flattering that people think I appeal to women. But that was a gift from my parents.
And I guess I have a face and a look that sort of lends itself to period costume!
