"I think there is definitely a desire for an actor to show that there are other parts of themselves."
"Somebody who has been doing television for so long, one wants to, you know -- if that is thin and light, then to add something thick and heavy to balance it out."
"One's hope is that everybody goes 'oh my god, a REAL actor.'"
"There are two places, aren't there? There's Broadway and there's the West End."
"They all come on one bloody night and that is the night you get reviewed. It's like facing... it's like the inhale of Darth Vader surrounding you on the stage. It's like (makes a sucking sound) a mixture of contempt mixed with this struggling spirit of goodwill from your friends in the audience. It just doesn't compare to the weight of this other force. And you can get just completely sucked into it."
"Words are so potent and it's like arrows on burnt flesh. Because ultimately, the goal of everybody is to encourage people to go to the theatre. If, you know, a good percentage of people perhaps will not go because of the reviews, then the reviews are not participating in the attempt to keep theatre alive in the city!"
*Playbill reports that there will be a U.S. Broadcast of this documentary:
"Theatrebiz plays on digital channel BBC4 on Sunday nights at 9 PM and again at 11:50 PM, Thursdays at 7 PM, Fridays at 1:55 AM, Saturdays at 11:55 PM and Sundays at 2:45 AM (episodes two and three will be first screened on Sept. 19 and 26). A U.S. run on the Trio channel will follow at the end of 2004, and a British terrestrial showing on BBC2 is thought likely by series co-producer Gina Newson.
XF in UK 10th Anniversary Celebration

X-Files in interactive push to mark 10-year anniversary
Media Bulletin, UK
LONDON - 'The X Files', the cult paranormal TV series, is to mark its 10-year anniversary by launching an interactive poll on Fox International Channel FX 289 to find the best episodes.
Fans of the show will be able to vote on the best Mulder, Scully, scariest and weirdest episodes, with the two most popular choices to be broadcast on September 18 and 19. Voting will commence on September 10 via text message.
FX 289 will also run an interactive 10th Anniversary X-Files Quiz that will incorporate eight mini quizzes and a chance to win a JVC home entertainment system, copies of 'The X-Files' Season 1-3 box sets and limited editions of artwork from the series.
Jason Thorp, vice-president of broadcasting and marketing at Fox International Channels, said: "'The X-Files' has always had a very local fanbase and what better way for us to celebrate its 10th anniversary than to let fans call the shots in terms of which episodes we show."
'The X-Files' premiered in the UK on September 19, 1994 and immediately assumed a cult status and helped to establish Fox TV as one of the biggest networks in the US.
