1(On his Idols) "For me Johnny Depp and Paul Newman. Their choices and their non-conformity attract and inspire me.."
2(On theatre) "It is such an education. The process of rehearsal means you learn so much and really get the chance to develop your work on a character. You can cover so many facets - try things out. For example, by the second week Tyler was different - he was much more level, and slightly standoffish He became more still, watching people. And he stood up for himself more. And night after night you find out more about the character, and get the chance to try things. In films there is never that time to really develop a role. You can get halfway through and think: "Oh, that's what I am about!"
3(On fans) "More odd than daunting. And worship is possibly too strong a word or perhaps I am a little afraid to acknowledge that. It is also very flattering & pleasing.."
4(On Stage mistakes) "During Saturday Night Fever at the end of the first act dance number I tried to perform a split-jump, only I can't do them so I ended up on my ass followed by the most unsightly backward roll out of it, followed by the cast falling over in laughter and a good portion of the audience too.."
