Quote of the Day
Getting to do what I think was my fifth BBC drama with Nikki Amuka-Bird - we've done 'Shoot The Messenger,' 'Five Days,' 'The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency,' 'Born Equal' and now 'Small Island' - was another highlight for me. And filming in Jamaica was great, too.
One of the things the BBC does better than anyone is period drama.
Considered purely as effects-driven filmed drama, 'The Day After Tomorrow' checks in somewhere in the middle of one of Hollywood's most absurd and least lamented dead genres, the disaster pic of the '70s. It's a little better than 'Earthquake' but not as good as 'The Towering Inferno,' because it doesn't star Steve McQueen and Paul Newman.
'Dark Blue' is ultimately a gritty crime drama, at its core. I don't think that is ever going to change.
I used to teach kids when I was younger. When I was about 14 or 15 I started teaching children drama and something that I used to say to them was, 'Don't be afraid.' People would be afraid of forgetting their lines or something.
Conflict is drama, and how people deal with conflict shows you the kind of people they are.
I did a lot of musicals when I was young and finally went to drama school to try and get away from doing musicals... and of course the first thing that happened when I got out is I got offered a musical. And then when I got to the Royal Shakespeare Company, which was my next job, I ended up doing a bloody musical!
I'd love to do drama if it was interesting.
Beethoven had a great look. It was very much about the drama of appearance.
The ideal situation would be to bypass all of the drama and mayhem and just get the music right to the people. I'm confident that we'll eventually figure it out.
Drama is easier to do because you just have to have the emotion and not get caught acting, but comedy is much harder.
The last thing on my mind was to be an actor, but I had a crush on a cute girl in the drama department, so the best thing for me to do was audition, help out, do carpentry, whatever it took to get me on that project.
I just like the continue doing what I've been doing. A melange of funny, straight drama, television, movies, a little theater here and there wouldn't hurt. So if I can keep doing that, I'll be a very happy person.

I'm not someone who has had to deal with much personal drama outside of the usual: growing up with parents who hated each other, two marriages and divorces of my own. There was the cancer thing, too.
Unless you're Jack Lemmon or Cary Grant, there are few guys who can do comedy and drama.
My next step must be to go to drama school. Well, I get into drama school, so I did that.
Christianity makes of life a moral drama in which we play a starring role and in which the most ordinary events take on a grand significance.
Ooh, it's too embarrassing to share my innermost romantic secrets - although I have written Danielle the odd poem. If anything they are more comedic than romantic. They used to be well-received but that was before she started studying Shakespeare at drama college. Now I feel so inept.
But I majored in Drama, modified with Psychology.
I definitely don't want to do drama. I'm not looking to branch out into that world.
I don't think rap really fits in to 'American Idol' in the sense that I believe rap is an art form in itself more akin to poetry, more akin to drama, if you will.
I was on the football team because I wanted to experience the different iconic social classes of high school. So football for me was an attempt to socially integrate in an interesting way. And then I didn't like it anymore and stopped doing it and focused more on drama and science and other forms of art and music.
Sometimes I'll turn the channel and there's the movie and I can honestly say that those last few minutes always fascinate me. It's one of the rare instances when image, music, and drama work effectively.
When I was a kid I never knew the difference between a sitcom and a drama. I just knew what my parents were watching and what was making them happy.
I usually choose movies that I would want to see. I appreciate drama and if the right script came across my desk, drama you will see.
Comedy is so hard; it's so much harder than drama. The pacing of it, the energy of it.
I paid my dues at drama school and worked backstage in every Theatre in London.
I think the point to be understood is that we're all different. I've never been a fan of theories of acting. I didn't go to drama school, so I was never put through a training that was limited by someone saying, 'This is the way you should act.'
I'm not consciously avoiding doing a lot of period drama, but I don't really seek it out either.
Comedy, at least the way I write comedy, is just drama with jokes.
