Natascha Mcelhone Quotes / Quotations

I feel awful for women who are trying to raise kids on their own, with zero income and no fathers present - that's single motherhood.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


Death is final. No it is not just final, it's worse than that, it's diminishing: the dead continue to decrease, to occupy less space.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I think it's incumbent on actresses to bring something else to the part which isn't in the script.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


Growing up, I wasn't allowed dolls, and my brothers weren't allowed guns. I inherited my brothers' clothes. I was never dressed in pink, and they were never dressed in blue; there were none of those rules that people still bizarrely subscribe to.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I don't believe in categorising a gender, as it makes for discord. People always say, 'That's what men are like' or, 'That's what women do'; I don't really feel that at all. I think that's because I have two fathers, three brothers, a husband and two sons. I'm surrounded by maleness, and I couldn't possibly summarise them into a type.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I was brought up by a Marxist rationalist stepfather, so I don't believe in the supernatural or religion or horoscopes, and the absolute nature of death is quite helpful for me. My husband was there, then he wasn't.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


In terms of 'Solaris,' I didn't really think about the religious aspect an awful lot. There's one scene at a dinner party, and it's discussed, but it wasn't an overwhelming theme for me.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


Mum left school at 15, and after a few years of modelling and dating jazz musicians, was married by 21 to my father, Mike Taylor, a journalist on the 'Daily Mirror.' They had my brother and me pretty quickly and had split up by the time I was two. I don't really have any memories of them as a couple.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I have a massive divide between being a competent human being and being completely hopeless, when it comes to logic.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


My stepfather introduced me to The London Library when I was about 18; the clientele has definitely changed since then, but it is still a wonderful oasis in the middle of London.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I've always looked old for my age.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


It's how the '70s were for movies, the 2000s are for TV. I think it's a phenomenal time for TV and to be involved in it.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I always think I love work, and I knew early on that I wanted to be an actress. Then I meet people who have truly dedicated their lives to acting, and I realise that I'm so completely in the back seat.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I play Nitin Sawhney's 'Letting Go' repeatedly, nonstop. I find it transformative. I'm so glad iPods were invented so I didn't have to drive everyone around me mad with the repetition.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I'm not religious. I was as a child, and like lots of people, I suppose, rapidly became very disillusioned with the whole thing. I also feel that organised religion has caused far more problems than it has solved.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


Living with very limited expectations is a much more immediate way of living. You really do just make the best of everything you have. I guess kids have that ability; they wait in joyful anticipation of something rather than that sense of entitlement.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


My grandparents never understood why my mother Noreen chose such exotic names for her children: Damon and me. My granny insisted on calling my brother Dermot - a good Irish name - until she died; I was just known as 'wee one.'
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I first met my husband when I was 15. He was very cool, in a band, all that kind of thing, but he took a long time to grow up. Our paths crossed again 10 years later, and after about two weeks I knew that was it. I'm glad I met him when I did, even though I was fairly young. Because I think sometimes you can crystallise into singledom.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I happen to find motherhood a very natural state, but I know a lot of other people don't.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


Scribbling things down is my therapy. I filter later.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I always keep myself busy. I'm writing. Or I'm creating something. Or I'm doing stuff with the kids. I'm up incredibly early in the morning; I go to bed incredibly late at night.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I grew up with my stepfather in Brighton, but I did spend a lot of time with my natural father, and I was loved by both, so I suppose the advantage of this was that I wasn't bound by one set of experiences; I always had an alternative.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I think the difference between finding happiness, or moments of happiness, is how you choose to interpret things. That's a rather shocking responsibility. That we're responsible for our own happiness. It's not those around us.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I'm very different to my mum. I'm not as beautiful as she is, nor - she probably despairs about this - as groomed. I certainly rebelled against her idea of looking well turned-out. I spent several years with a shaved head in jeans and baggy shirts.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


My concentration span is truly that of a gnat. Some people have this ladder, and that's all there is - the ladder. I have the ladder, too, but there's a building around it with scaffolding, and lots of windows for me to peek into. Then suddenly I'll remember, 'Oh, there's the ladder. I should be concentrating on that.'
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


My granny was very concerned that we weren't baptised - Mum had been desperate to escape her own Catholic upbringing. But Granny thought we were blighted. Whenever we turned up at her house, she would flick holy water - from the font she kept by the door - over us, in the hope that it would save us from damnation.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


My kids always say to me, 'Can we watch TV?' I say, 'Absolutely!' because then I can get something done. But then they say, and I wait for it, 'But can you watch with us?' My moment of freedom vanishes. So not only do I not think TV's that great and I hate sitting in front of it, but I have to with them.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


Some actors are like flowers basking in the sun - they love the attention, and the fans get what they want. With me it's different. I know the fans aren't getting what they want. And I'm certainly not getting what I want.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I wanted to know whether the character was going to be 'the wife' or 'the girlfriend', which bores me to tears and is endemic. I think it's incumbent on actresses to bring something else to the part which isn't in the script.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I think I was ambitious. I still am. A lot of the stuff that was coming my way was stuff I just didn't want to do, so it might have seemed like lack of ambition to shy away from that, but if it sticks in your throat... I just wanted to do what I wanted to do and which I thought said something.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


Now I'm the sole breadwinner... I have to work. I have to try and work non-stop, actually, to make things work.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


Extraordinary things have come about since Martin's death. And I don't know if that's to compensate... it's also an attitude, it's how you look at things. It's a choice how you perceive the events of your life.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


My kids are still flourishing, it's remarkable to me. And growing and learning more and more. I did think that if perhaps the roots of the tree were gone, the branches would no longer flower, but they are. That's remarkable.
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


Somebody said something wonderful to me the other day, Martin's best mate, he said, 'But Tash, you talk about status quo, there is no such thing as status quo, things change all the time, and if this hasn't taught you that...
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


I think TV, I think right now, and I speak for many shows. Not just our show. That TVs now in it's zenith. It's how the 70s were for movies-the 2000's are for TV. I think it's a phenomenal time for TV and to be involved in it. And I, as you know, this show slightly preempted me that curve, but God am I glad that it worked out that way. Because I really, I didn't have much experience with TV. I had mostly done movies and some plays. So I was very lucky to end up in a show that was not only successful, but was sort of groundbreaking in its own way, or at least it pushed some boundaries!
Quotation of Natascha Mcelhone


[on '"Californication" (2007)'] David (Duchovny) always said the thing that drew him to the story originally was this idea that a couple met and they had 'it.' They had that thing, they had the spark. They were in love. And they lost it, destroyed it, and then tried to get it back. And couldn't. That maybe you don't get a second chance.
