Quotation of Tom Wilkinson

Quotation of Tom Wilkinson


There's only one shot you have at a movie, and that's your best shot. If you can't give it that, don't go. They're paying you! You gotta do a job for them.
Quotation of Tom Wilkinson


When I very first started acting, at university, I thought I could do anything. Because you are so ignorant, you don't know what a good production should be. You don't know what the rules are. And then, when you start doing it professionally, you learn the rules and become more intimidated.
Quotation of Tom Wilkinson


When you're an actor you don't really know what you have to do until you see what you look like.
Quotation of Tom Wilkinson

Quotation of Tom Wilkinson

Quotation of Tom Wilkinson


You know grief. You've had it in your own life. But I don't use it directly. It's processed through my acting instincts, the bit of me that knows about those things, so when it comes out it's not my grief that you're seeing, it's the grief of that character. It's active imagination.
Quotation of Tom Wilkinson
