John Thaw QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
I feel very proud to have created a character that is so respected. On the other hand, as an actor, I have more freedom now to do other things.
Quotation of John Thaw
I found a lady who taught me elocution, and then I went for a RADA audition and was offered a place.
Quotation of John Thaw
I like classical music and the poetry of A.E. Housman like Morse, but I can't do crosswords. And although I now don't drink at all, I have never liked beer!
Quotation of John Thaw
I think Morse is a little patronising to Lewis a lot of the time but he envies him. Therefore you've got a classic sort of double-act.
Quotation of John Thaw
I think Morse's thing about being a poor policeman but a good detective is a very good description of him.
Quotation of John Thaw
I think sadly that Morse thinks that he can exist on his own and he only realises at the end that he can't and never really has been able to. I feel sorry for him.
Quotation of John Thaw
I was involved in school plays, but when I left school I did a couple of odd jobs as a baker's apprentice and then as a fruit market porter in Manchester.
Quotation of John Thaw
I'm an introspective person. I'm not an extrovert.
Quotation of John Thaw
I'm not an instinctive actor.
Quotation of John Thaw
In the same way he's fascinated by crosswords, the puzzle of solving the murder is what drives him on.
Quotation of John Thaw
Morse is a walking dictionary, but he's also an arrogant man. He doesn't have any friends. His closest friend is Lewis, who's a workmate.
Quotation of John Thaw
Morse is an arrogant, rather pompous well-educated intellectual. Lewis is anything but. He's very straightforward, very down-to-earth.
Quotation of John Thaw
Morse's fallibility, both as a policeman and as a human being, I think we can all identify and empathise with him in some way and think, Oh thank God, he's not James Bond.
Quotation of John Thaw
Parts like Morse don't grow on trees. He's a great character.
Quotation of John Thaw
The writers have built up the Morse and Lewis characters, and their relationship. You're fascinated how these two men get to the result they get to.
Quotation of John Thaw
There is no more final end than death.
Quotation of John Thaw
Watch the mouth, it reveals what the eyes try to hide.
Quotation of John Thaw
We all know that somebody did it, but how did they find the answer?
Quotation of John Thaw
We were using a hand-held camera to film the scene when Morse collapses. The camera wouldn't start. Three times they said action and it still wouldn't work. To this day, they still don't know what was wrong.
Quotation of John Thaw
When he's solved that particular clue, then he's back to reality and he doesn't like it. I think that's why he drinks more than most.
Quotation of John Thaw
You can't say to someone with a brain like Morse, This is the way you do it, regardless of the circumstances; this is the way it is done.
