Quotation of Gary Oldman

Quotation of Gary Oldman

Quotation of Gary Oldman


I got obsessed with classical music, I got obsessed with Chopin, with playing the piano.
Quotation of Gary Oldman

Quotation of Gary Oldman


It's always hard when you're playing someone for a lot of people out there who are going to see the movie after reading the books. There's a communion between a reader and the writer, so people will have an idea who Sirius Black is and I might not be everyone's idea of that.
Quotation of Gary Oldman


It's becoming increasingly harder and harder; there's no such thing as independent film anymore. There aren't any, they don't exist. In the old days you could go and get a certain amount of the budget with foreign sales, now everybody wants a marketable angle.
