It's really actually been pretty shoddy and appalling, the amount of local content, Australian drama, on ABC TV.Gillian Armstrong Tv Drama Sayings By Gillian Armstrong: It's really actually been pretty shoddy and appalling, the amount of local content, Australian drama,
In terms of making TV drama, not everything has to make sense. In cinema, you usually strive for reality and a natural environment, but in TV, it's more acceptable to do something crazy and break with naturalism.Takashi Miike Tv Drama Sayings By Takashi Miike: In terms of making TV drama, not everything has to make sense. In cinema, you
Kathy Burke has been a real inspiration. I think she's brilliant. I like the fact she doesn't care what she looks like on TV and just gets really into character. Obviously, she can do drama as well, but it's her comedy I love.Sheridan Smith Tv Drama Sayings By Sheridan Smith: Kathy Burke has been a real inspiration. I think she's brilliant. I like the fact
In movies and TV, we tend to fall into tropes about how characters might get out of problems.

Duran Duran blared from the car stereo. The woman, two silver bracelets on the hand she dangled out the window, cast a glance in my direction. I could have been a Denny's restaurant sign or a traffic signal, it would have been no different. She was your regular sort of beautiful young woman, I guess. In a TV drama, she'd be the female lead's best friend, the face that appears once in a cafe scene to say, What's the matter? You haven't been yourself lately.Haruki Murakami Tv Drama Sayings By Haruki Murakami: Duran Duran blared from the car stereo. The woman, two silver bracelets on the hand
From now on, don't do this, even for me. We don't have an employer-employee relationship right now. I'm a person and you're a person. Why does it have to be so one-sided? Why do only women ... Why only you, Yoo Kyeong, have to do things like that? 'So, I'll try to look good, in any way that I can.' Let go of such thoughts. When you're on TV, you look wonderful, full of confident. You shine.Lee Se-joo Tv Drama Sayings By Lee Se-joo: From now on, don't do this, even for me. We don't have an employer-employee relationship
I want to continue doing as big a variety of things as I can do, and if that means I have the honor of getting to do more feature work, I would love that. I know that if I make any other long-term TV commitments, it's not going to be on a drama.Adam Arkin Tv Drama Sayings By Adam Arkin: I want to continue doing as big a variety of things as I can do,
Put me in a costume, and I'm your man. I must have one of those faces which seems to suit period drama more than modern films and TV programmes. But I'm not complaining, I love going back in time. I feel quite lucky because nobody knows who I am. I can walk about and have ordinary conversations with people.Hans Matheson Tv Drama Sayings By Hans Matheson: Put me in a costume, and I'm your man. I must have one of those
The quotes were good, if overpolished. I find this common, and in direct proportion to the amount of TV a subject watches. Not long ago, I interviewed a woman whose twenty-two-year-old daughter had just been murdered by her boyfriend, and she gave me a line straight from a legal drama I happened to catch the night before: I'd like to say that I pity him, but now I fear I'll never be able to pity again.Gillian Flynn Tv Drama Sayings By Gillian Flynn: The quotes were good, if overpolished. I find this common, and in direct proportion to
I've always said that with kids' TV that people get stuck in it from drama school but that's not fair because I know myself that when you go in creatively, kids are so much more open to ideas. You're so much freer to mess about and try things.Johnny Vegas Tv Drama Sayings By Johnny Vegas: I've always said that with kids' TV that people get stuck in it from drama
I have not watched the TV show. I do not generally watch TV sci-fi drama shows. They make me itch.Charles Stross Tv Drama Sayings By Charles Stross: I have not watched the TV show. I do not generally watch TV sci-fi drama
TV drama - not always, but on the whole - were pretty appalling and very secondary, too. No one expected it to be like watching a movie; that was the point. But I think when you start watching 'Vikings,' it is like watching a movie - you're taken somewhere else.Michael Hirst Tv Drama Sayings By Michael Hirst: TV drama - not always, but on the whole - were pretty appalling and very
Crime is interesting. It's huge and fascinating, and it's what my business, TV and film, is largely based on. But the realities are tragic, and in crime drama you rarely see the pain of bereavement or any consequences. It's reduced to a chess game.Peter Capaldi Tv Drama Sayings By Peter Capaldi: Crime is interesting. It's huge and fascinating, and it's what my business, TV and film,
A movie playing on the TV screen in front of us. Some sort of bad Tom Cruise drama. I've never liked Tom Cruise. He always reminded me of someone's creepy cousin, who smiles too big before he touches your butt and whispers something gross in your ear with hot whiskey breath.Erin McCarthy Tv Drama Sayings By Erin McCarthy: A movie playing on the TV screen in front of us. Some sort of bad
The great writers like Chekhov know that tragedy and laughter are just a few steps from each other ... but it took me a long time as an actress to learn that. Actually Arthur Miller taught me in the Seventies. We were making a CBS TV drama of his play Playing for Time about Auschwitz but the characters were laughing. It was a big insight for me to realise that that was what's called gallows humour, in this case worse than the gallows, that humans need to laugh and make jokes in order to survive.Vanessa Redgrave Tv Drama Sayings By Vanessa Redgrave: The great writers like Chekhov know that tragedy and laughter are just a few steps
It's really hard to find just a simple character-driven drama, outside of a genre, that was available to direct, except for on TV.Marc Webb Tv Drama Sayings By Marc Webb: It's really hard to find just a simple character-driven drama, outside of a genre, that
The fact that I had killed a man was really putting a crimp in my love
life.
Well, okay, to be strictly accurate, I hadn't killed him. But I had
helped. And I had watched enough of the Emmy Award-winning cops-andlawyers
drama Crime and Punishment on TV to know that cops weren't very
understanding about that sort of thing. I had even auditioned for the
role of a murderess in a C&P episode the previous year, but I didn't get
the part. So, since I had never even played a killer, actually being one
now was something of a novelty.
Laura Resnick Tv Drama Sayings By Laura Resnick: The fact that I had killed a man was really putting a crimp in my
A TV touchstone for me is 'The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd.' That series was whimsical and smart and had the mix of comedy and drama that I now trade in - but with a dash of magical realism. I wanted to be Molly Dodd, but more than that, I wanted to be Jay Tarses, who created the show.Jenji Kohan Tv Drama Sayings By Jenji Kohan: A TV touchstone for me is 'The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd.' That series
To all my soap fans out there, my horror fanatics, comedy lovers, I will tell you this: 'Death Valley' is an action-packed drama, comedic, horror TV series that has a non-stop adventure in each episode. It's like a huge pot of Texas gumbo. If you like all four of those genres, then you'll love this show.Texas Battle Tv Drama Sayings By Texas Battle: To all my soap fans out there, my horror fanatics, comedy lovers, I will tell
The headmistress was a very well-respected theater teacher. She taught me what stage left and stage right were, what a director was, and what all these things meant, which was something I had no concept of. She sent me off to drama school, at age 18, and I stayed there for three years. Before I knew it, I was working on a TV show.Robert Kazinsky Tv Drama Sayings By Robert Kazinsky: The headmistress was a very well-respected theater teacher. She taught me what stage left and
I'm a big fan of unflinching drama and bold drama. If you shy away from dark subject matters, there's only certain places for TV drama to go. If there are shows that can break through that and be brave, those are the shows that I personally enjoy watching. I try and do work that I would watch.Joe Dempsie Tv Drama Sayings By Joe Dempsie: I'm a big fan of unflinching drama and bold drama. If you shy away from
The secret to all drama, film, TV, or books - the thing that people respond to most, and the thing I find myself as a viewer feeling most interested in, is the idea of change.Jonathan Nolan Tv Drama Sayings By Jonathan Nolan: The secret to all drama, film, TV, or books - the thing that people respond

One episode of 'Game of Thrones' is equivalent to my film 'Centurion' in budget and scope. 'Centurion' has a longer running time, but that's kind of the only difference, and I think people now, if they want drama, they watch TV.Neil Marshall Tv Drama Sayings By Neil Marshall: One episode of 'Game of Thrones' is equivalent to my film 'Centurion' in budget and
My dad was an actor, and my older sister is an actress, and so I very much remember thinking, "Well, of course I'll do that as well." But I never imagined myself as an actor who would be in films. I always only thought of myself being in a play or a musical and maybe the odd episode of [U.K. '80s TV drama] Casualty. My backup plan was to do something with children, to start a nursery school or work with underprivileged kids. And I still dream of maybe doing that in some way. I've always got children in my house, always.Kate Winslet Tv Drama Sayings By Kate Winslet: My dad was an actor, and my older sister is an actress, and so I
Each form of the acting is different. I think it keeps your mind active. TV, film and theater are different disciplines, as are independent films, opposed to studio films. There are differences in the size and the genre, or a period drama as opposed to a contemporary drama, or the types of characters.Luke Evans Tv Drama Sayings By Luke Evans: Each form of the acting is different. I think it keeps your mind active. TV,
But now we live in a time and in a culture when mystery tends to mean something more answerable, it means a crime novel, a thriller, a drama on TV, usually one where we'll find out - and where the whole point of reading it or watching it will be that we will find out - what happened.Ali Smith Tv Drama Sayings By Ali Smith: But now we live in a time and in a culture when mystery tends to
Soaps are one of the few areas on TV that really embrace older women. In drama, there's this ridiculous invisibility for women between the ages of 40 and 60. Unless you're old enough to play a grandmother, there just aren't the roles.Amanda Donohoe Tv Drama Sayings By Amanda Donohoe: Soaps are one of the few areas on TV that really embrace older women. In
I know nothing about producing TV drama and any involvement on my part is liable to prove an obstacle to the producers, so I prefer to be a cheerleader and let them get on with it.Bernard Cornwell Tv Drama Sayings By Bernard Cornwell: I know nothing about producing TV drama and any involvement on my part is liable
It's drama, it's a lot of things, but you know it's always about every movie or every TV project ever made is meant to be watched. If people like it and support it, that's what it is all about, really it's sort of the important part about it.Will Estes Tv Drama Sayings By Will Estes: It's drama, it's a lot of things, but you know it's always about every movie
Sometimes I feel that in religious content, religious drama, it's almost told like a tale, like an account of facts, and in 'A.D. The Bible Continues,' it's drama, it's real drama that we like to see on TV today, seeing the characters struggle and doubt and be completely in conflict with each other, kind of like 'House of Cards.'Juan Pablo Di Pace Tv Drama Sayings By Juan Pablo Di Pace: Sometimes I feel that in religious content, religious drama, it's almost told like a tale,
'Days' has always been strong as an icon in TV history, and it's still going on strong and represents the genre of daytime drama so well. I'm proud to be a part of it.Alison Sweeney Tv Drama Sayings By Alison Sweeney: 'Days' has always been strong as an icon in TV history, and it's still going
It seems to me conspiracy is at the heart of dozens of TV dramas currently on. Maybe that itself is some kind of conspiracy.Hank Stuever Tv Drama Sayings By Hank Stuever: It seems to me conspiracy is at the heart of dozens of TV dramas currently
The essence of Reality TV is all about drama. So, I think bringing pressure is healthy whether it's a professional chef or a domestic chef. Because the only way ever to really identify the true purpose of how good they are is submerging them under pressure. So I say it's no different than a live football game because it's about the intensity.Gordon Ramsay Tv Drama Sayings By Gordon Ramsay: The essence of Reality TV is all about drama. So, I think bringing pressure is
The quality of TV drama nowadays is getting better and better. They've had to invent a new term for it: 'high-end television.'Robert Carlyle Tv Drama Sayings By Robert Carlyle: The quality of TV drama nowadays is getting better and better. They've had to invent
I think TV is all about caring, and if you don't care about a character in a drama or a person when they get voted out of a reality show, it's bad TV. I wouldn't care if you dropped a bomb on the 'Big Brother' house.Ray Winstone Tv Drama Sayings By Ray Winstone: I think TV is all about caring, and if you don't care about a character
Among all the complaints you hear these days about the crimes of the media, it seems to me the critics miss the big one. It is that especially TV, but also we of the print press, tend to reduce mess and complexity and ambiguity to a simple story line that doesn't reflect reality so much as it distorts it ... What bothers me about the journalistic tendency to reduce unmanageable reality to self-contained, movielike little dramas is not just that we falsify when we do this. It is also that we really miss the good story.Meg Greenfield Tv Drama Sayings By Meg Greenfield: Among all the complaints you hear these days about the crimes of the media, it
I had no idea what it took to be an actor. Then all of a sudden I found myself cast in a TV drama. The director was very harsh with me. One time, he told me this would be my first and last acting job. I seriously thought that acting was not the right career for me.Lee Byung-hun Tv Drama Sayings By Lee Byung-hun: I had no idea what it took to be an actor. Then all of a
Drop Out
detach yourself from the external social drama which is as dehydrated and ersatz as TV. Turn On

In Britain you're more used to challenging drama. In America, TV is just boring, and numbing, and bloody terrible.Michael Imperioli Tv Drama Sayings By Michael Imperioli: In Britain you're more used to challenging drama. In America, TV is just boring, and
I'd heard of Evergreen Care Center before. Cass and I had always made fun of the stupid ads they ran on TV, featuring some dragged-out woman with a limp perm and big, painted-on circles under her eyes, downing vodka and sobbing uncontrollably. "We can't heal you at Evergreen", the very somber voiceover said. "But we can help you to heal yourself." It had become our own running joke, applicable to almost anything.
"Hey Cass, "I'd say, "hand me that toothpaste."
"Caitlin," she'd say, her voice dark and serious. "I can't hand you the toothpaste. But I CAN help you hand the toothpaste to yourself.
Sarah Dessen Tv Drama Sayings By Sarah Dessen: I'd heard of Evergreen Care Center before. Cass and I had always made fun of

I come out of TV. I come out of live television, BBC drama: that's where I started first as a designer, then a director. Then I went independent TV, then television advertising.Ridley Scott Tv Drama Sayings By Ridley Scott: I come out of TV. I come out of live television, BBC drama: that's where
A story that is more interesting than any novel written by Nicolas Spark; a relationship that has more emotions than any movie made by Karan Johar; and a drama that is more exciting than any TV show...this what we have in our 15 years of marriage and 19 years of togetherness (?)...Sandhya Jane Tv Drama Sayings By Sandhya Jane: A story that is more interesting than any novel written by Nicolas Spark; a relationship
I don't remember a drama on TV that had shown a couple could be married but still love each other very much, spend every day as if they were still on their honeymoon, be sensuous, and have fun together.Aaron Spelling Tv Drama Sayings By Aaron Spelling: I don't remember a drama on TV that had shown a couple could be married
I did an episode of a show called 'Mind Games,' which is no longer on the air, and it was an intellectual comedy-drama. It was just really smart TV.Emma Dumont Tv Drama Sayings By Emma Dumont: I did an episode of a show called 'Mind Games,' which is no longer on
The reality of any location in Britain being used in a TV program of a film is that something bad is going to happen! That's the nature of drama. Most of the things that get made or basically grisly detective shows about murders, accidents or medical dramas.Ben Wheatley Tv Drama Sayings By Ben Wheatley: The reality of any location in Britain being used in a TV program of a
Out of perverseness, I jumped on the subway and went down to a sound stage on Fourth Street to watch the shooting of Kay Doubleday's big strip scene in Mad Dog Coll, a gangster film that can still, to my embarrassment, be seen occasionally on late-night TV... Kay Doubleday was in my class at Lee Strasberg's; it was in the interest of art, I told myself, to watch her prance down a ramp, singing and stripping her heart out.Brooke Hayward Tv Drama Sayings By Brooke Hayward: Out of perverseness, I jumped on the subway and went down to a sound stage
I think it's really important to have good quality drama on TV.Jaime Winstone Tv Drama Sayings By Jaime Winstone: I think it's really important to have good quality drama on TV.

When you're making a TV drama, the showrunner is God, and so however onerous and difficult and consuming that responsibility is, you're being treated with respect, so it changes your whole outlook to the production. You're being asked about costumes, set design, music, every aspect of the show.Michael Hirst Tv Drama Sayings By Michael Hirst: When you're making a TV drama, the showrunner is God, and so however onerous and
When I went to drama school, I thought that everybody would think I was only there because my dad was on TV.Linus Roache Tv Drama Sayings By Linus Roache: When I went to drama school, I thought that everybody would think I was only
I've really dreamed of doing television. All of us do television, coming up. But when I was coming up, television was a black hole for actors. Now, television has a certain cache. Now everybody wants to be on TV because they're doing adult dramas. If you're an actor, it's like, "Well, get me on television," because it's the only place you can do it and also make a living at it. If my kids need shoes, I better do a TV show because I damn sure don't make any money with independent films.Billy Bob Thornton Tv Drama Sayings By Billy Bob Thornton: I've really dreamed of doing television. All of us do television, coming up. But when

I'd been gearing up to working in theatre since coming out of drama school, but it was an exciting time for TV drama - it was the birth of Channel 4, and Brookside was very cutting-edge at the time.Amanda Burton Tv Drama Sayings By Amanda Burton: I'd been gearing up to working in theatre since coming out of drama school, but
I had a brilliant drama teacher while I was at Roland Park: Ann Mainolfi. But the school was mostly rich in academics. It wasn't like I was prepping myself for a life in acting. There, you prepped yourself to have a stable future. The school's piece de resistance is college prep - it didn't teach you how to audition for a TV show.Nicole Ari Parker Tv Drama Sayings By Nicole Ari Parker: I had a brilliant drama teacher while I was at Roland Park: Ann Mainolfi. But
We need more drama on Australian TV. We've actually dropped the ball on that.Gillian Armstrong Tv Drama Sayings By Gillian Armstrong: We need more drama on Australian TV. We've actually dropped the ball on that.

Just as it's unfair to review a taco stand for not being a four-star restaurant, I also have to be mindful that not every drama on TV is trying to be "The Wire."Hank Stuever Tv Drama Sayings By Hank Stuever: Just as it's unfair to review a taco stand for not being a four-star restaurant,
If you count my childhood appearances in a few TV shows and being the son of two well-known actor parents in the U.K., plus three years of drama school, you could say that I've been pretty much surrounded by the business of acting and performing my entire life.Linus Roache Tv Drama Sayings By Linus Roache: If you count my childhood appearances in a few TV shows and being the son

I feel very strongly influenced by long-form box-set TV drama ... I feel really excited that, at last, the novel has found its on-screen equivalent, because the emotional arcs and changes that you can follow are just so much more like a novel, and so many amazing shows recently have done as much as film can do to show the interior world.Eleanor Catton Tv Drama Sayings By Eleanor Catton: I feel very strongly influenced by long-form box-set TV drama ...
