In big battle scenes, like 'King Arthur', you see the k
In big battle scenes, like ‘King Arthur’, you see the knights in all their fine armour, but they’re not in the thick of it: follow the perspective, and you’ll find some poor little sod, who didn’t want to be there, anyway, with his head split.

Michael Foreman
I don’t cover my scenes. We approach it visually. Sometimes we go out of our way to do awkward blocking so that we can tell whatever the emotional heartbeat is of that scene in the most interesting way possible.

Sam Esmail
I like doing fight scenes. I always have, and I insist on doing as much of that action as they’ll let me do. I think that’s easy for me.

Noomi Rapace
I think the grime scene is one of the sickest, most diverse scenes ever.

You think about D.C. as a boring stuffy place. That’s kind of its image. But if you grow up in that, you see all these energetic, fun people and crazy stuff that happens behind the scenes that no one knows about.

Kristin Gore
I love doing emotional scenes. As I’ve had a perfect life, I don’t really have much to pull from. But it’s really fun and not that challenging. It’s almost pretty easy. The hardest thing is to try and make people laugh. That’s a really hard thing.

Hilary Duff
I don’t miss scenes at all the way that I used to miss them when I was younger making a film. It’s actually quite fun to get rid of them now.

Paul Thomas Anderson
What I consider a good part for a woman and what some other Hollywood people think are good women’s parts are very different. I don’t want to play the supportive girlfriend who has nine scenes and just loves that man, maybe cheats on him in one scene but will always be there, and I mean – give me a break.

Laura Dern
To be honest I don’t watch the show, I don’t watch any TV, so I have no idea what the show is about. I go to Hawaii, shot my scenes and script and ‘Ciao.’ I’m not a ‘Lost’ fanatic and it’s a disappointment for thousands people and friends that are dying to know what will happen. They know more than me.

Sonya Walger
I had a novel in the back of my mind when I won an Ian St James story competition in 1993. At the award ceremony an agent asked me if I was writing a novel. I showed her four or five chapters of what would become ‘Behind the Scenes at the Museum’ and to my surprise she auctioned them off.

Kate Atkinson
I’ll need every ounce that I have to drive it through. Film and TV require that energy. Sometimes fight scenes can be pretty intense. When I was shooting ‘Heaven’ it was truly guerrilla film-making.

Karl Urban
The fans pay our wages and I want to give back to the fans. I have been telling them for ages that I want big fights and they haven’t believed me. They don’t know the politics that go on behind the scenes through no fault of my own.

Kell Brook
Intimate scenes on a movie set are just dry, bizarre things; people standing around.

Daniel Craig
The biggest difference for me is momentum. On a smaller film you get to shoot sometimes four or five scenes a day and you’ve got to do the tight schedule. I think I really feel the luxuries of a big budget film.

Joel Edgerton
In writing ‘William Shakespeare’s Star Wars,’ I had the freedom to go beyond the original script and add asides, soliloquys and even new scenes. The main characters all get a soliloquy or two – or in Luke’s case, several.

Ian Doescher
If you’re in scenes with a guy you know really well in a comedy, you tend to crack each other up too much.

Billy Bob Thornton
While it’s true that Washington would benefit from more civility, the Senate, behind the scenes, is an extraordinarily collegial institution.

Jon Kyl
People only see you on TV and riding around like stars, but they don’t see behind the scenes how much time you have to put in working out. The lifting, the eating habits, trying to change all that so you can be that guy on TV, to be a baller, that’s what people don’t understand.

Chauncey Billups
To make it more familiar to me, I ended up treating my swordplay scenes like choreography. So it was, ‘One and two and three and four and five, and turn and step and down and up and lunge.’

Catherine Zeta-Jones
It is very important to me to communicate with the fans and not hide what’s going on behind the scenes.

Sam Allardyce
I made tons of films. I did animation for my friends’ films. I animated scenes just for the fun of it. Most of my stuff was bad, but I had fun, and I tried everything I knew to get better.

Pete Docter
Filming scenes like that are always odd but I feel comfortable with Josh and care about him a great deal, so it could be much worse. Scenes like that are just part of the job.

Nikki Cox
Lara Croft is completely different; the way she does the action scenes and maintains her body in perfect condition… I can’t compete with her in any way.

Anushka Shetty
The ‘serial kisser’ tag that has been thrust on to me is a lame stereotype. It irritates me. Yes, there is sexual content in my movies, and I have never been apologetic about doing bold scenes. But it’s not fair to tag me this way because that can be very stifling.

Emraan Hashmi
I got caught up in doing records for other artists. I just stayed behind the scenes, and time just kinda passed.

Missy Elliott
Running my show is really like an actor being in repertory but where, in one day in one performance, you do scenes from a drama, a farce, a low comedy and a tragedy.

Dick Cavett
Watching the completed version of The Two Towers for example, I was very conscious of scenes – sometimes whole sequences – that I had seen being filmed or edited but which hadn’t made it into the final cut.

Brian Sibley
When we are filming, it often feels like we’re flying blind. As an actor, you have no idea if your choices are right or if they work. Some scenes feel like a complete Hail Mary. Imagine you’re blindfolded and cook a massive Thanksgiving feast with only new recipes – without getting to taste any of them along the way.

Lela Loren
I started out splitting my time between the Kansas City and St. Louis comedy scenes, which both had bluer sensibilities than other cities that I’ve worked.

Nikki Glaser
I love the smaller scenes. I love the smaller, slightly more theatrical scenes.

Martin Freeman
Like with ‘Starlet,’ we intentionally did not look at ‘Boogie Nights’ before making ‘Starlet,’ and I should have. Because there are one or two scenes that come too close and it looks almost like – because it’s about the same industry, and you’re going to be covering certain subjects.

Sean Baker
TV is so different from the movies. It takes a lot of stamina because you work such long hours. It is really challenging. You are learning the next day’s lines while you are shooting today’s scenes. I found courage I never realised I had. I hope to do more.

Sharon Stone
I’d say that ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ is the most challenging movie I’ve made. It was tough to figure out how to lead this large cast into some very sensitive, intense, emotional scenes.

Ron Howard
I watch a lot of movies, and I tend to be influenced by scenes that intrigue me, that make me want to use the same effects or technique.

Masashi Kishimoto
There are three kinds of people in this world: 1) People who make lists, 2) People who don’t make lists, and 3) People who carve tiny Nativity scenes out of pecan hulls. I’m sorry, there isn’t really a third category; it’s just that a workable list needs a minimum of three items, I feel.

Mary Roach
I don’t really take into account what the media says. People have their own opinions about what goes on, but they don’t see what goes on behind the scenes with an athlete and their preparation.

Sophie Pascoe
Action scenes get me so excited, and my adrenaline starts pumping.

Jodi Lyn O’Keefe
I love working with the Farrelly brothers. I’m a big fan and feel very lucky to have gotten to work with them a few times. One thing that I learned while working with them is that you have to keep your cell phone off when filming scenes, or you owe them a lot of money!

Carly Craig
Every other show that I’m on, they’re always rushed, and you feel this pressure to hurry up and get out of the scene, but I don’t feel that way on ‘Transparent.’ They like to linger in these scenes.

Rob Huebel
Death scenes are hard. Sex scenes are hard.

Paul Sparks
As far as behind the scenes, I absolutely want to get into making my own films and producing my own things.

Allison Mack
I liked a lot of the scenes I did with Ryan Phillippe.

Kieran Culkin
Let us say in the pocket of one of my old coats I find a movie ticket from many years ago. Once I see the ticket, not only do I remember that I saw this movie, but also scenes from this movie, which I think I have entirely forgotten, come back to me. Objects have this power, and I like it.

Orhan Pamuk
Some scenes you juggle two balls, some scenes you juggle three balls, some scenes you can juggle five balls. The key is always to speak in your own voice. Speak the truth. That’s Acting 101. Then you start putting layers on top of that.

John Burroughs
Watching the scenes out of New Orleans, if you turn down the sound it could be the Sudan or any Third World country. But it’s not. it’s the United States of America.

Al Roker
Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga’ was huge for me. Seeing how all the creatures were made, looking inside Jabba The Hut, all of the maquettes lined up, building the world… ‘This is a job?!’ I was always avidly watching special features and behind the scenes stuff.

Robert Eggers
I used to watch ‘Coming to America’ every day after school. I have full-on long-running inside jokes with friends and family about different scenes in that movie alone. Also, my brother and I loved ‘The Golden Child,’ so, yeah: I was a huge fan of Eddie Murphy growing up.

Gabourey Sidibe
When writing sex scenes, there is often no pleasing anyone, except perhaps the writer herself.

Lynn Coady
Rewriting isn’t just about dialogue; it’s the order of the scenes, how you finish a scene, how you get into a scene.

Tom Stoppard
I don’t remember scenes. I’m like, ‘Really, we shot that?’

Yvonne Strahovski
I went swimming the other day and my wife was watching and she said, ‘You know, it’s funny, it’s when you’ve got no clothes on, no one recognizes you.’ I said, ‘What are you saying? That I should do more love scenes?’

Eddie Marsan
I paint mostly from real life. It has to start with that. Real people, real street scenes, behind the curtain scenes, live models, paintings, photographs, staged setups, architecture, grids, graphic design. Whatever it takes to make it work.

Bob Dylan
I spent a lot of time in Chicago at a place called The Annoyance Theater, where we would develop one-act plays through improv, and you would just improvise scenes and then discover something about the character and use it in the next scene.

Matt Walsh
Whether we’re stuffing our faces with Kogi tacos or playing a pickup game of football outside the stages, there’s never a shortage of fun behind the scenes on ‘Murder In The First.’

Ian Anthony Dale
Intimate scenes are always super awkward – and that is the truth. I know everybody says it, but it really is true.

Meghann Fahy
I think we’ve shot scenes from every angle directors can think of to make it look like different villages. I’ve directed a couple shows on that set and believe me, it’s impossible not to duplicate some camera angles.

Vic Morrow
I don’t find intimate scenes more difficult than other scenes.

Joan Chen
I think ‘Baywatch’ will be a summer blockbuster, and I’m not just saying it because I’m in it. I saw a bunch of scenes right now, and it’s the funniest movie ever. Dwayne and Zac Efron have the best chemistry, and I come and interrupt their chemistry.

Priyanka Chopra
I need solid roles that provide scope for performance, even if it is just a few scenes.

I’m really bad writing the chase scenes or fighting scenes. I’m much better for writing, like, a more melancholic or tragic music.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
On ‘Game of Thrones’, the people that I’ve met, of the people behind the scenes, was not even a scratch of the vast crew that actually does work on that show.

Maisie Williams
I think the first thing I did was several scenes from Romeo and Juliet.

Sally Field
When I entertain, I want to have fun. But I’m also a control person. I don’t go in for those everyone-in-the-kitchen cooking scenes. So if I want to be with my guests, I have to do everything – or nearly everything – in advance.

Geoffrey Zakarian
I’ve heard many reports of police attending scenes of domestic violence where they’ve had to turn off music and televisions and radios. Noise tends to drive us a bit crazy.

Julian Treasure
I had never done anything like I had done in ‘Masters of Sex.’ Those are some very adventurous scenes.

Nicholas D’Agosto
When ‘The Thin Blue Line’ came out, I was criticized by many people for using reenactments, as if I wasn’t dedicated to the truth because I filmed these scenes. That always and still seems to be nonsensical.

Errol Morris
I really fancy Eddie Redmayne. I wouldn’t mind a few steamy scenes with him.

Sheridan Smith
In a way, the whole notion of a blueprint of a building is not that different from a script for a movie. A sequence of spaces, which is what you do as an architect, is really the same as a sequence of scenes.

Susanne Bier
I have to do so many scenes cooking that I wanted to learn how to chop like I know what I’m doing and do certain things around the kitchen that look right.

Kevin Dillon
When we have a lot of the running, which we do on green screen, that is actually the hardest… I swear I have, like, four separate scenes in a row running, and I’d only done one at a time before.

Keiynan Lonsdale
If my characters travel somewhere, I generally write about a place I know to give the scenes more authenticity.

Sara Shepard
I love finding balance. My favorite thing to do is action-driven, emotionally-charged scenes.

Geoff Johns
I’ve always just loved the Marshall/Lily relationship, and just exploring that, and the dynamic of a long-term relationship, and I just love our scenes together. I love it.

Alyson Hannigan
I am kind of the front man for a team of people behind the scenes who are working just as hard as me and are putting in just as much time to make this all happen. I’m not trying to be humble. I just want everyone to get credit where credit is due.

Sam Hunt
‘The Dance Scene’ is just a real look at what it takes. You see the award shows. You see the videos and you never realize what goes on behind the scenes. The reality and the preparation. The motivation I have to give each dancer on that set.

Laurieann Gibson
Before I’d written movies, I never could do big set-piece scenes with a lot of different speakers – when you’ve got twelve people around a dinner table talking at cross purposes. I had always been impressed by other people’s ability to do that.

Joan Didion
I do as much as I can. I even drive through the chase scenes several times to make sure the details are right.

Jeff Lindsay
Some scenes are just more people’s thing than others, and I know that my Gay New York is truly whatever I make of it. If I want her loud and lively, she’s there. If I want sunsets and starlight, Battery Park, here I come.

Gavin Creel
I’ve gone through my adolescence on TV so it’s pretty cringey when I look back on some pictures and scenes, but that’s part and parcel of being a child actor and growing up.

Kelvin Fletcher
We talked a lot about The Best Intentions and how we could shoot certain scenes in different ways with slightly different bits of dialogue and information, so that later on, we could cut the piece more easily and it would still feel complete, even though it was shorter.

Bille August
Poop humor is fun. If you do the toilet scenes well and commit to them, they can be really, really powerful.

Sandra Bullock
I have questioned myself about the brutality in the last few novels. Actually in ‘The Leopard,’ in hindsight, I feel I went a little bit too far with screaming blood. There are a couple of scenes that I regret and wish I had the chance to rewrite. ‘Phantom’ has less blood.

Jo Nesbo
‘Smallville’ was one of those things where we worked a lot of nights, and there were a lot of physical scenes. I was hurt a lot, but I loved it! The ‘Revenge’ cast was also one of the greatest, most gracious casts I’ve ever been a part of.

Justin Hartley
I’m the journeyman actor that you saw in one scene here, two scenes there. I’ve been eking out a living doing theater – Broadway, Off Broadway – film supporting roles, that I’m just excited to be a part of the conversation.

Viola Davis
Mike Tyson and I came up together in the streets, and being around people like him, I learned what goes on behind the scenes.

Eric B.
When you think Tink, you should just think of me as that around-the-way girl – relatable and honest. Even in my lifestyle, my entire aura is real. I don’t sugarcoat anything, whether I’m on stage or home in Chicago or just behind the scenes just chilling. I’m the same person you see on stage, always.

When you win a Grand Prix, it’s the culmination of everything coming together. Not just trackside, but behind the scenes.

Christian Horner
When I see sentimental scenes, I get emotional and tears start flowing from my eyes.

I think the first couple of times you do make-out scenes, you psych yourself out and it’s really nerve racking.

Hilarie Burton
Directing action scenes is really just pure visual storytelling that just makes sense to me pretty intuitively.

Hiro Murai
It turns out that my memory is just not that great, so for specific scenes with people doing stuff, sometimes I’d have the details all wrong or I couldn’t remember what happened exactly, so I just let that be.

Rick Moody
I can’t bear kissing scenes.

Olivia Colman
I think explicit love scenes are a turn off unless it’s the kind you read with one hand.

Colleen McCullough
I love doing fight scenes. I’ve been a dancer since I was 3 years old, so I think that helped me with the movements.

Emeraude Toubia
With the fight scenes, they would take a video camera and shoot alongside the camera so we would piece it together on the computer and had an extremely rough cut of what we were doing.

Kelly Hu
I can see myself doing production work and handling projects behind the scenes.

Moises Arias
Unless the story line carries the scenes, the scenes don’t really mean anything.

George Cukor
I’ve always been interested in directing, writing, and producing, so when I went behind the scenes, it was like a whole new world that I got to experience.

Marsai Martin
I’ve always enjoyed the big stunt scenes that I’ve had – from the barn fire when I first started in ‘Emmerdale,’ to years later when Victoria started a fire and Andy had to rescue people.

Kelvin Fletcher
It’s odd to grow up in a gaming town because… we know all of the tricks that are going on behind the scenes.

Madchen Amick
The properties of people and the properties of character have almost nothing to do with each other. They really don’t. I know it seems like they do because we look alike, but people don’t speak in dialogue. Their lives don’t unfold in a series of scenes that form a narrative arc.

Aaron Sorkin
I understand, certain scenes have to have a lot of takes. As an actor, I think it’s quite nice to have a handful of takes, because you don’t want to do it once or twice; I think once or twice sometimes is quite terrifying because you don’t really feel like you’ve given them what you want.

Luke Evans
I try to play serious scenes a little funny and the comedy a little serious.

Uzo Aduba
When people first started watching UFC, it seemed like a no-holds barred event… early on it looked like all the fighters were crazy. Actually, there are a lot of techniques, and the reality shows have let people see the fighters behind the scenes.

Randy Couture
Picking my topics is sort of a process of elimination for me. Most things don’t work for me. I like to cover science and unexpected things happening in labs. Also, theoretical research doesn’t work for my style. I need scenes and interactions. Then, humor. I’m having the most fun when I can have fun with my work.

Mary Roach
I always felt that, when I saw Denzel or Viola do scenes in their past films or past projects, that if it’s a heavy scene, and it’s requiring a lot of emotional weight, that we would have nothing but silence and incense burning in between takes just to keep things quiet.

Jovan Adepo
Fight scenes are hard, no matter what you do. You’re trying to make it look like you’re hurting someone without hurting them. It doesn’t matter how big and strong the guy is that you’re fighting or how small and feeble someone is that you’re fighting. You don’t want to hurt them. You’re working with them.

Zach McGowan
A lot of action movies today seem to have scenes that just lead up to the action.

Jason Statham
For many artists and critics, beauty is a discredited idea. It denotes the saccharine sylvan scenes and cheesy melodies that appealed to Granny.

Roger Scruton
It’s always weird doing love scenes. And the thing is, you can’t really photograph two people kissing naturally, because then you wouldn’t be able to see anything.

Annabella Sciorra
Shower scenes are great. Janet Leigh never took a shower again in her life after ‘Psycho’.

Katherine Waterston
On an independent film, you really learn about pace. You have so little time to do things, that you really have to know your scenes.

Juno Temple
When you’re working on a novel, you never think about how much it would cost to shoot one of your scenes. But that’s a huge consideration in film and TV.

Michael Connelly
I’m not looking to… I’d like to build my company and make a bigger company always, but I think in the behind the scenes arena is where I’d prefer to spend my time.

Joel Silver
Marriage isn’t about a collection of scenes over ten years of two people telling each other that they love each other. It’s about commitment.

Jeff Nichols
I supply a presence. There are never any long dialogue scenes to establish a character.

Charles Bronson
With modelling, a lot happens behind the scenes; all the fittings and hair and makeup. Then the runway takes two minutes – you just walk out and come back in!

Anna Ewers
The romance stuff is easy. A sex scene… that’s hard, because you don’t know what to do. Those scenes are awkward.

John Turturro
For ages, in my lunch hours, I would just go round and choreograph fight scenes. For fun. So now I’m very good at being thrown around. I bounce, in the words of my friends.

Daniel Radcliffe
I’ve never lived in Eastern Europe, although both my wife and I have ancestors in Poland and Russia – but I can see the scenes I create.

Alan Furst
For a producer, I’ve been behind the scenes my whole career.

I have notebooks and sketchbooks for ideas. I also have drawers full of envelopes covered in quick outlines, scenes or scraps of dialogue that I don’t want to forget. I tend to grab whatever’s to hand and just get the thing down before it’s lost. It’s not what you would call a streamlined system.

Steven Hall
I wouldn’t say I see things visually first, but what I do think is important, for a lot of screenwriters, is to not just think about the words on the page, but also the world as a whole and the vibe of the movie, rather than a sequence of scenes written on the page.

Evan Daugherty
With me, Bobby Fish, and Kyle O’Reilly, I know on-screen we are these brothers whose bond can’t be broken, and we are this faction. I promise you, it’s very real behind the scenes, too. I’ve known those guys for years. We travel together all the time; we talk every single day.

Adam Cole
To tell you the truth, while I do enjoy the grand-scale elements, it’s the personal scenes, the character moments that I really find satisfying. That’s where I get to delve into the characters’ minds and hearts. That’s where they become living, breathing beings to me.

George Perez
Harlem exists in retrospect, in the memory of grandparents or elderly cousins, those ‘old-timers’ ever ready with their geysers of remembered scenes. The legends of ‘Black Mecca’ are preserved in the glossy musicals of Times Square and in texts of virtually every kind.

Darryl Pinckney
Movement should be a counter, whether in action scenes or dialogue or whatever. It counters where your eye is going. This style thing, for me it’s all fitted to the action, to the script, to the characters.

Samuel Fuller
I think good radio often uses the techniques of fiction: characters, scenes, a big urgent emotional question. And as in the best fiction, tone counts for a lot.

Ira Glass
It’s hard in America as a writer of color, an actor of color, not to get caught up in race and culture. But you’re also supposed to be able to write characters and scenes in a way where it’s just a matter of fact, a component.

John Cho
I have kissed in almost all the films except in ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.’ I’m not sure if my kissing on screen has anything to do with the success of a film, but producers make sure to put a kissing scene or two. They feel my kissing scenes are my lucky streak.

Emraan Hashmi
When I do outdoor scenes, I tend to find a quiet space where I can sit and carve a walking stick that can turn out to be interesting for me.

Mads Mikkelsen
I just feel it’s important to make sure that behind the scenes is as filled with diverse voices as in front of the scene is.

Larry Wilmore
I’m too shy to do kissing scenes.

Shah Rukh Khan
Usually supply chains operate quietly behind the scenes.

Doug McMillon
People don’t actually see what’s gone on behind the scenes – the hard work, when you’re doing your rehab, when you’re sleeping on an ice machine – and yet they have an opinion on it.

Jonny Bairstow
An enthusiastic desire of visiting the Old World haunted me from early childhood. I cherished a presentiment, amounting almost to belief, that I should one day behold the scenes, among which my fancy had so long wandered.

Bayard Taylor
I have always felt that just to show love, you don’t have to make two people do intimate scenes. That is not the idea of ‘I love you.’

Ali Fazal
DVD ushered in this era when you had to have additional footage, deleted scenes, things like that. There was no call for that back when we were just doing VHS cassettes and LaserDiscs.

Paul W. S. Anderson
So many times you see beautiful lovemaking scenes with a lot of exposure or an awkward lovemaking scene, but I think it’s very rare that you see it private.

Ang Lee
I don’t want to smoke on screen, as I will be sending a wrong message to my fans, and I appeal to my costars too, to avoid smoking scenes if possible.

Mahesh Babu
Film is a lot different. You have the whole script in its entirety, and you have a couple of weeks to learn different scenes, really go over them and rehearse them so when you get to them they’re more fleshed out. But TV shows are harder.

Alycia Debnam-Carey
I feel like because I’ve done more gay characters, gay scenes, or gay projects than most straight actors, people see it as some sort of mission. It’s more of a case-by-case basis, and just trying to capture figures that I love. I guess that a lot of the figures that I love were gay.

James Franco
I steal scenes, I steal opportunities. I am the ultimate thief. I got sticky fingers, man. They all call me The Thief.

J. B. Smoove
I want to go behind the scenes as well as on screen. I think you have to make your own destiny in this world.

Avan Jogia
There was an email forwarded to me from a first-grade teacher, and she said she was teaching them civil rights for MLK weekend, and a little first-grader stood up, and he said, ‘I can explain segregation,’ and proceeded to explain all the scenes from ‘Hidden Figures.’ And I died because that’s everything.

Allison Schroeder
I think the most surprising thing about the Olympics would be the amount of interaction and partying that goes on behind the scenes. They have nightclubs at the Olympic Village. It’s like college all over again.

Misty May-Treanor
My wife knows that I love her too much, so she is fine with the intimate scenes I do. She also knows that only if my role justifies such a scene will I do it. She understands my work as an actor.

Barun Sobti
I’m trying to make perfect moments. And those generate meaning. If you go deep enough in how to make a moment, very quickly you come to how narrative works – to what we are as a species, how we’ve come up with telling stories in scenes and images.

Ira Glass
It’s always easiest for me as a writer if I know I have a great ending. It can make everything else work. If you don’t have a good ending, it’s the hardest things in the world to come up with one. I always loved the ending of ‘The Kite Runner,’ and the scenes that are most faithful to the book are the last few scenes.

David Benioff
If you think about it – if you watch a gymnast compete, you don’t see their training behind the scenes. You just see the competition. You see the final result when it’s polished. And that is very much what people experience with concerts. They go to the concert. And they see the final version.

Hilary Hahn
‘Cinderella’ the cartoon scared me. I watched the bits with the mice, and the scenes with the stepsisters ripping her dress apart scared me. Cinderella was never even my favorite character in ‘Into the Woods.’

Anna Kendrick
All of my friends at drama school were still sat on the floor doing voice exercises and I was doing scenes with David Tennant and Catherine Tate.

Tom Bateman
An Emraan Hashmi film has come to guarantee certain ingredients: An intense, grey central character, a beautiful girl – if he gets lucky, then two – couple of kisses, a few bold scenes, fabulous music and a climatic twist.

Emraan Hashmi
The great thing about Snapchat is your fans can get a detailed experience of what your life is like behind the scenes.

Antonio Brown
I’d never really shot action scenes before, but I realized early on that is very much like shooting choreography and dance.

Jonas Akerlund
It’s possible that I’ve matured as a writer, and I hope I’ve matured emotionally, but I always find myself revisiting these adolescent scenes.

Diablo Cody
You just want to get it right so badly, so it’s stressful when it comes to those vulnerable, dramatic scenes.

Rick Hoffman
No manager in the world gets good results all the time and you know there’s people always ready to have a snipe. In fact I’m my own biggest critic, I really am. Because my own standards are so high, I criticise myself behind the scenes more than perhaps I should, according to people who know me well.

Glenn Hoddle
I think I saw ‘Ghost’ at, like, 6 or 7 – like, a little too early to see ‘Ghost’ – but I would watch Whoopi over any kids’ thing. Everything she did was so funny, and all of her scenes are almost like sketches.

Nicole Byer
To me, as an audience member, movies always come to a screeching halt when they get to their action scenes. They always feel like they drag on to me.

Rachel Morrison
It wasn’t a leap for me to go from not wanting to be in my body as a teenager, not wanting to be in my house, to thinking, ‘What would happen if I had disappeared?’ And then going from writing scenes of angry kids to thinking a little more about the parents and what their lives would be like.

Charles Bock
If you ask me whether I can direct, I can. In fact, I have shot several songs, scenes and stunts. When certain directors of my movies were not able to be there for some reason and had asked me to help out, I have directed. But to helm an entire movie is a different art altogether.

We used to take two years to complete a film, and sometimes, we used to be told on the sets that the scenes are still being written. Everything today is pre-planned.

Dimple Kapadia
Often times people complain about the lack of time in television, but I have to say, you don’t have any more time to film in feature films then you do in television. It’s just a question of how many scenes you’ll be doing in the course of a day.

Andre Braugher
The real, raw, driven-to-tears type scenes have always scared me since I was very young working as an actor. And to this very day, I get tremendously neurotic making sure nothing is forced or fake.

Rick Hoffman
There are certain things that they say you can’t do, there are all these secret people behind the scenes who make things available for you to do. That’s why you have so much crime and violence.

Afrika Bambaataa
I find directing so incredibly rewarding and challenging and humbling and exciting and engaging. Scenes become challenging. Actors bring out the best of you. Circumstances demand you dig deep.

Noah Wyle
I do all of my own stunts in videos. The Jet Ski scenes, the fight scenes, all of them!

Mariah Carey
Tagging with Cesaro, I’ve just had fun. I don’t think about promos; I don’t think about backstage scenes. I just go out there and be me.

I’ve been stealing scenes all my life.

Mickey Rooney
Something I learned as an actor was which scenes needed to be rehearsed and which actors are good with rehearsal, which actors learn from it, and which ones grow stale because they start to second-guess themselves.

Angelina Jolie
After the Rodgers and Hammerstein revolution, songs became part of the story, as opposed to just entertainments in between comedy scenes.

Stephen Sondheim
Sleep is my best friend when we’re shooting ‘Game of Thrones’ because there are very long days and intense scenes.

Maisie Williams
Nude scenes aren’t fun.

Jimmy Smits
When I direct and have to look at filmed scenes of myself, I suck.

William Shatner
I’ve done a lot of fight scenes, and I always find that it’s better that they be meticulously choreographed. You want them to look as real as possible, but you don’t want anyone to get hurt. So I believe in really working it out in rehearsal, and when you get to the set, just go for it 100 percent.

Holt McCallany
In my day, people didn’t do nude scenes. I mean they didn’t exist.

Claire Bloom
My grandpa showed me how to build stamina onset behind the scenes on ‘Twixt.’

Gia Coppola
I write scripts in storyboard fashion using stick figures, and thought balloons and word balloons and captions. Then I’ll write descriptions of what scenes should look like and turn it over to the artist.

Harvey Pekar
I was doing a lot of boxing through ‘Lost,’ thrashing a bag at least three days a week. If I had shirtless scenes, I’d do it six days a week.

Josh Holloway
I think when you get on with the actors that you’re working with, even if you do have really intimate scenes, as long as you get on well, and have a bit of a laugh while doing it, then it’s fine.

Saoirse Ronan
I’ve got a role in the new Billy Bob Thornton movie that Billy Bob wrote and is going to direct called ‘Jayne Mansfield’s Car.’ I only have four scenes, but I have as much dialogue as anybody in the movie.

Ron White
I would love to continue working behind the scenes in music – to produce and manage up-and-coming musical talent would be a dream!

Connor Franta
As for me, it is interesting to play a role that is not human; it is nice to be all powerful without fancy action scenes. But, it is not funny to play God, even on film. You don’t speak much and just smile beatifically.

All I can say is that with ‘The Golden Compass,’ I didn’t get to make the movie I had planned to make. When I look at the film, at the casting and certain scenes, I’m very happy. As for the final product, I can’t vouch for that.

Chris Weitz
Basically, great directors know how to combine music with the scenes that they are working on.

John Gourley
It doesn’t excite me as a writer to write some swearing or sex scenes, because they don’t have any emotional content.

Jed Mercurio
I only make storyboards for action scenes. Once you make a storyboard, you don’t film; it can be a stiff move.

Anton Corbijn
I got to meet Mark Hamill. He signed some Star Wars posters for us. I saw the fight scenes he had. He was really into making fun of himself and Star Wars.

Shannon Elizabeth
First scenes are super-important to me. I’ll spend months and months pacing and climbing the walls trying to come up with the first scene. I drive for hours on the freeway.

Aaron Sorkin
It was one of the marvellous feelings of the film, having the music going in your head while doing scenes.

Dinah Sheridan
When I was shooting ‘The Dark Knight,’ I always felt like I was shooting an intimate drama for some reason. The scenes were all intimate, and they were always between a few individuals.

Ng Chin Han
The book came after the fall of the Taliban, it says something about Afghan family life. Those kind of stories – what happens behind the scenes on a TV screen – are important.

Asne Seierstad
In the happy scenes there were really fun times. Sean would say really funny stuff because he likes to improv. I would want to laugh, but you are not allowed to do that during the take.

Dakota Fanning
With things like ‘Dragon Ball,’ in the case of fight scenes, I’d take the panel layout across two pages when the book is opened and alter it by angling them, and making them bigger or smaller, to give movement to the panels themselves.

Akira Toriyama
I’m a big fan of Clint Eastwood, but the Westerns I draw from most directly come from an earlier period in Hollywood. I actually look back at movies like ‘Rio Bravo’ and others I’ve liked over the years, and I capture pictures from the movies and use them as a reference for the scenes I create.

Steve Sheinkin
If your reader has been given a rousing opening, he will usually then sit still for at least some exposition. But be sure to follow that chunk of telling with one or more dramatized scenes. That’s much more effective than being given section after section of telling.

Nancy Kress
Hardly anyone says anything real in the courtroom. Almost everything is decided ahead of time, and the truth is found behind the scenes.

Hirokazu Kore-eda
The bikini scenes in ‘Billa’ were vital because they showed me as a seductress. I’d like to say here that outfits define a character and help an actor, say, 30 per cent, the rest depends on one’s histrionic skills.

Anushka Shetty
Mississippi Mermaid was a very special experience because we only had the dialogues for the scenes we were shooting the night before.

Catherine Deneuve
A lot of my writing and my detailing of scenes are based on my observations of life in Nagpur.

Rajkumar Hirani
I love to do very long and complicated scenes.

Catherine Deneuve
I’m always impressed with the work of animators. You have to be able to draw the scenes in between movements. I’m impressed with the way they can do that – I don’t think I could.

Akira Toriyama
I stay very much undercover and behind the scenes – most places I go, people don’t know how important I am. But I will admit that my favorite piece of clothing to wear out is an old T-shirt from a Boston tour that does have a Boston logo. But that doesn’t change anything.

Tom Scholz
I’m a fan of music documentaries and I always love seeing what goes on behind the scenes. In kind of the new era of record companies and record releases and that sort of thing, there has to be way more content for the audience.

Israel Houghton
I enjoy fighting scenes. I like fighting in film. I like pretending to fight in films.

Martin Freeman
I’ve had scenes where I had to cry, and by the time I’ve cried for the 20th time, I’m exhausted.

Karrueche Tran
I don’t want to be Batman. Let Val Kilmer do it. I just want to be Uncle Batman. I have this whole ‘warm relationship’ plot in my mind. In the final scenes, the new Batmobile breaks down, the new Batman’s stranded on the side of the road. We grab our old Batmobile, pick him up and drive away.

Adam West
We all want to let fans behind the scenes. We just don’t want them following us around.

Kenny Smith
You realize, no matter how great, books are not shows or movies; each operates on their own different rules. ‘Game of Thrones’ is no different. Being forced to come up with those scenes on short notice helped how we were viewing the show and forcing it to come into its own.

D. B. Weiss
If it’s a modern-day story dealing with certain ethnic groups, I think I could open up certain scenes for improvisation, while staying within the structure of the script.

Martin Scorsese
That is one of the reasons one enjoys acting. Now and again, you get scenes where you work with somebody really good and you have a good time trying to make it really work and really work well.

Albert Finney
I don’t really worry about the size of the part much any more. It’s nice to have more time to work on the character, and to have big scenes to play. But if there’s something playable there, and if it’s interesting to do, then that’s nice.

Alan Alda
On ‘Angel’ I got to work a lot with Mike Massa, who was David Boreanaz’ stunt double, and Mike would let me do most of my stuff by myself. I did almost all my fight scenes by myself.

Christian Kane
In dialogue scenes, my favorite moments are when people aren’t talking because you can cut to the heart of the matter much more quickly, often with a look. People hide things in words. When you don’t have words to hide things in, it becomes much more direct and much more immediate of a connection.

David Lowery
Egyptians are quite incredible people. They have everything: the culture, the music, the scenes. So much of Arab music and art started there.

Yasmine Hamdan
The Knack were a very, very powerful band, and you got to understand, when they came in, all the punk stuff was still going on. There was an amazing conflict within the scenes.

Jon Taffer
I remember laughing an inordinate amount of time. Setting up scenes that involve ooze coming out basements, or pigs’ heads flying through windows is really fun. How could you not laugh?

Margot Kidder
‘The Levanter’ features some of the strongest action scenes to be found in Ambler – who can, in some of his fiction, stay in one place for a whole novel.

Alan Furst
You have to stay hydrated when you have crying scenes.

Claire Danes
I actually didn’t really go to college. I enrolled and never showed up. Being on a college campus where we shot some of the scenes in ‘The Goodwin Games’… it did make me wish that was an experience that I had.

Adam Rodriguez
I never do any television without chocolate. That’s my motto and I live by it. Quite often I write the scripts and I make sure there are chocolate scenes. Actually I’m a bit of a chocolate tart and will eat anything. It’s amazing I’m so slim.

Dawn French
No one really sees pro athletes behind the scenes. They don’t know how hard they work. They don’t see how you work on the basics. They couldn’t possibly know. You wouldn’t think that someone who hits like Alex Rodriguez needs to use a tee every day. But that’s how he stayed on top of it.

Patrick Mahomes
When we played Paris, the English punks would come over, and they got to know the French punks. There was some nice scenes in the back alleys.

Joe Strummer
I think good radio often uses the techniques of fiction: characters, scenes, a big urgent emotional question. And as in the best fiction, tone counts for a lot. But a lot of effective and interesting radio is based on one character who reacts to the world.

Ira Glass
More than the length, it’s the meat of the character that is more important. It does not matter if you are on screen, standing in the corner for the whole film, as opposed to doing something that stands out in two scenes.

Kunal Khemu
The thing I really love about ‘Saturday Night Fever’ is that the movie is a gritty drama. Most people just remember the amazing, whimsical fantasy dance scenes, but then, when you watch it again, it’s raw.

Max Joseph
‘Power’ is a beast to produce. Everyone behind the scenes brings a thoughtfulness and dauntless work ethic day in and day out.

Lela Loren
I like to rehearse with the actors scenes that are not in the script and will not be in the film because what we’re really doing is trying to establish their character, and good acting to me is about reacting.

Jim Jarmusch
For about seven years. I really like it there. There are a lot of great musicians. The scene is very open. A lot of stuff going on. People’s ears are really open, they are not closed. A lot of scenes here, people just get tunnel vision and are into one thing.

John Zorn
I’ll fly Away took place in the 50’s and 60’s in America’s South, and there are a couple of scenes where me and my friends are supposed to be skinny dipping with these girls.

Jeremy London
If action scenes just happen decontextualized, they lose their weight and the viewer can feel they don’t make sense and that they wouldn’t have happened that way.

Lisa Joy
From its conception, I wanted Bumble’s culture to match its values. If women were taking charge on our app, then they’d be running the show behind the scenes, too.

Whitney Wolfe Herd
It’s nice to create a character, not just within two scenes, but within the journey of a whole movie. It’s fun to do that.

Oscar Isaac
I’ve experienced some really very obvious, direct homophobia – when I was still trying to be an artist, behind the scenes, being told to be less gay, be less feminine.

Justin Tranter
If it’s not in New York, let’s say it’s in St. Louis, then they’ve got to find a place or get with someone who knows about the work… they’ve got to find a place like that and do scenes, and then try to get in plays.

Ray Walston
I like Robo Shankar – he evokes laughter, he has a unique body language and style. I loved all scenes of his in ‘Maari.’

I’m sticking my tongue out in scenes to try to make that work in 3D. I’m thinking I’ll try to get my tongue all the way out to the second row of the audience.

Nicolas Cage
When you have a Green Lantern mixing with a foil like Batman, you get scenes that are comic-book history. There’s the epicness of it all.

Jim Lee
I find that most of my scripts have a lot more scenes than most films, so the average movie might have 100 scenes, my average script has 300 scenes.

Steven Zaillian
There’s only one movie in my career I’ve had regrets with cutting it shorter, and I think some scenes maybe I shouldn’t have cut.

Ang Lee
I’m one of the guys that’s always behind the scenes and always low-key.

A. J. Green
After watching my Kannada film ‘U Turn,’ director Kannan narrated the story of ‘Ivan Thanthiran,’ and wanted me to attend the auditions in Chennai. He selected me after seeing me perform to two difficult scenes I was given during the screen test.

Shraddha Srinath
Hopefully, I’m not stealing scenes from other actors, because then they won’t want to work with me.

Rob Riggle
Exaggeration can lend action scenes more force, but I like to stick to more realistic figures: They help keep the cool in the action scenes, although they may be not as forceful as the exaggerated ones.

Masashi Kishimoto
I never thought I wanted to direct. I love the control of it. I love to dream of scenes.

Salli Richardson
Some scenes take days and weeks, and some scenes take an hour.

Chris Chibnall
I’d be lying if I said I never think about my female fans in certain shots and certain scenes. Like, when I’m topless, I might think: ‘This one is for the ladies.’

Jack O’Connell
I don’t write fight scenes in comics all that well. I think they’re a waste of space unless they can move a story forward in some compelling fashion. You’ve only got twenty-two pages to work with. Why throw that away on a set of meaningless punches?

Marjorie Liu
It was really an experience, being my first time directing a movie. The scenes that I was in, Brooke really directed me all the time. And the scenes that both of us were in, Brooke directed those. Come to think of it, Brooke directed most of the scenes.

Tony Shalhoub
Your fragile mind can’t have forgotten the terrifying technothriller series known ‘Scorpion’. Because it features the worst hacking scenes ever broadcast in any medium.

Annalee Newitz
I’m trained to button scenes and round things off, and I get rewarded for doing that.

Tony Gilroy
The more screenwriting you do, the more you become aware that particular scenes aren’t going to end up in the movie because they’re too expensive. That has perhaps changed the way I think about writing novels, actually, because now I write expensive scenes whenever I can.

Nick Hornby
I just don’t like filming scenes where it’s like, that’s not how people talk. People aren’t saying a joke every five seconds.

Dave McCary
I avoided nudity unless a film couldn’t be told without those scenes. If you look at my films, few of them have that element, yet nudity and male fantasies have become emblematic of my work.

Greta Scacchi
One of my favourite scenes ever is in Mr India – when the kids are hungry and Sridevi comes with the pastries etc, and they become friends. It’s impossible not to get teary-eyed.

Farah Khan
I was sad that Corpse Bride was so short. I would’ve liked to have had her around for way longer. She doesn’t actually have that many scenes.

Helena Bonham Carter
Emotional scenes can be especially difficult because I’m such a hyper, excited person, so sometimes that can be hard.

Noah Schnapp
Food scenes in movies are traditionally nightmares to shoot – you just can’t fake eating, and you usually have to repeat it a lot of times to get the angles you need. It’s actually quite a lot to ask of actors, and there’s really nowhere to hide.

David MacKenzie
The newly released movie ‘Noah’ features a retelling of the creation story that clearly depicts Darwinian evolution transforming a single-cell organism into a monkey. The movie also seems to show magic in scenes more reminiscent of the occult than of the Bible story.

Aaron Klein
If you have a good thing going behind the scenes, you’ll have a good thing going on-screen.

Dylan O’Brien
Once we were in the studio, we realized we were getting certain effects through the shooting of the dramatic scenes on video, shooting off a screen and then getting wave patterns and stuff like that.

Atom Egoyan
Writers divide fairly cleanly into those who only work through what they hear and those who are more visual. I am the latter, where I lie down on my office floor and play scenes through my head to – cinematically, several times with different elements – to see what works. I can’t write a scene until I can see it.

Jojo Moyes
I remember the first film I did, the lead actor would, in between scenes, be reading a newspaper or sleeping and I’d think, ‘How can you do that?’ But it’s so exhausting, you can’t be ‘on’ 12-14 hours a day.

Cate Blanchett
I always anticipated difficulties in order to avoid scenes.

Gloria Swanson
During ‘Race 2,’ I had to lean down completely because there was a lot of action scenes in it.

Jacqueline Fernandez
There were movies that always made me want to be a director. You see brilliant scenes and the way the emotions were handled. I thought, I’d really like to do that.

Bruce Beresford
The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.

Benjamin Disraeli
Fast cutting, loud music, blood spewing everywhere, and gunshots permeating the scenes does not necessarily make for a shocking movie.

Hirokazu Kore-eda
When I was a 21-year-old intern at CBS, I was told I had crossed eyes and shouldn’t try to be on air. That’s when I decided I was going to be behind the scenes.

Andy Cohen
When people ask me what I do, I tell them that I ‘do things in front of people.’ I don’t know why I do what I do. I’ve tried working behind the scenes. I felt left out!

Hari Nef
I’ve cut myself out… I’ve cut scenes out that I was in and that’s when you realize that you’ve got to make the best movie you can.

Jon Favreau
I never rehearse scenes with the whole ensemble, because I need to preserve some surprise. Instead, I work with the cast individually on their characters.

Arnaud Desplechin
I like the fact you can spend two hours setting up a scene that will only last a couple of seconds. And I like just sitting around and dozing between scenes!

Mackenzie Crook
My issue in the past with nudity was that these scenes had been written solely for box office draw.

Neve Campbell
I think my role, I want to have a presence both behind the scenes and in front of the camera. So I can’t say on one particular thing, so I’ll just name them all. I’ll be the jack of all trades and hopefully decent at one of them.

Octavia Spencer
On ‘Insecure,’ Molly works at a law firm, and there’s scenes where her boss doesn’t value her voice and doesn’t value her efforts. And we had a lot of women tweeting ‘Me too’ in that situation. We’re saying, ‘Hey, no more. Not on our watch.’

Yvonne Orji
With a documentary, you can cut away, you can do jump cuts, cut to a photograph at any point to bridge two scenes.

Christopher Guest
In ‘Maaya,’ I’m going shirtless for the first time in my career. My producer requested me to take off my shirt in one of the scenes. I have been working extremely hard to flaunt a perfect body for the scene.

Harshvardhan Rane
Because Blue Peter can get you access to places – if you go to somewhere like Nasa, you don’t just see what most people see, you can get a lot of behind the scenes access. You can talk to an astronaut.

Konnie Huq
In terms of graphic versus prose, I could probably do a lecture on that topic. But what stood out most was the difference in pacing the language and resulting scenes. One illustration can do so much for the reader.

Cynthia Leitich Smith
My idea of teaching literature is just to read great passages aloud or to look at it the way a writer does, which is what I try to do. Which is to say, ‘How does this writer do this? How did he order his scenes? Do you notice any pattern to his sentences?’

Ethan Canin
I love David Fincher – even though it was just two scenes, I loved the way we worked and could tell by the way he was shooting it that this was going to be an affective movie to say the least.

Richard Schiff
No nude scenes. No sex-symbol parts. I want people to recognize me for my work, not just for being pretty.

Robin Wright
I started my Twitter account for selfish reasons: I wanted to have a place to post updates on my book signing tour and stuff like that. I never realized that I’d have so much fun tweeting. It’s become the deleted scenes for my DVD of columns and podcasts.

Bill Simmons
Kiss scenes are one of the flowers of a drama.

Seo In-guk
I think I went more toward writing because that’s my talent. I don’t think I was a great performer… And I like being behind the scenes a little bit.

Harvey Mason, Jr.
In a lot of ways, TV writing taught me how to be a good storyteller. I learned about dialogue, scenes, moving the plot forward.

Maria Semple
In ‘Queer as Folk,’ we had three or four sex scenes in every episode, so I got used to doing that very early on. Those kinds of scenes can be challenging. They take a bit of time, and everyone’s a bit nervous.

Jeremy Podeswa
I like documentaries because there’s nothing to nitpick or criticize about scenes if they aren’t just right. It’s about honesty and real-life circumstances coming out. Granted it can be swayed by how people tell that story, but overall, I like it because it is true.

Steven Yeun
I’m just always learning lines. I’ve learned to flag the really crucial scenes, and I start figuring them out and committing them to memory as soon as I get them.

Claire Danes
It’s more fun in a way to do ensemble scenes, where you know your background, you know the scene, but you can’t prepare because someone else is going to say something that is going to lead you off.

Fred Willard
I didn’t find it difficult to live in the ‘Inherent Vice’ world or play those scenes, because they just seemed so real.

Katherine Waterston
There’s a bizarre comfort and safety in doing your last and most intimate scenes with the actor you’ve worked most closely.

Lela Loren
Let me completely condemn these sickening scenes; scenes of looting, scenes of vandalism, scenes of thieving, scenes of people attacking police, of people even attacking firefighters. This is criminality pure and simple and it has to be confronted.

David Cameron
I just shot my first dramatic movie in France, and for those dramatic scenes that I shot, I would not want to look at those. There’s a certain mindset you have to put yourself into for those scenes, and looking at the monitor would just take you out of it.

Lily-Rose Depp
Practicing going over scenes and in front of the camera just to see how that feels, and then ultimately just finding a way to expose yourself to people. That’s what I did.

Bridgit Mendler
I must have written 15 lyrics for ‘The Lion King,’ and only five or six were used. Some were scenes that disappeared, some were earlier versions of songs that didn’t work, or else the characters changed.

Tim Rice
Raquel Welch is someone I can also live without. We’ve got some love scenes together and I am dreading them!

Oliver Reed
The more people who see a film, the more life it has. But I don’t like when people watch DVDs and look at two scenes, but they don’t look at the whole movie. Or they sit and talk to each other. You should always watch a movie all the way through.

John Singleton
It doesn’t matter about the length of the role. I don’t do films for the number of scenes. I go for the quality of my character in the film and the impact that I will have.

Romantic scenes are a part of Bollywood cinema, and if the script demands some kind of intimacy, I have no issues with my daughter doing those scenes.

Too many actors try to get too much out of scenes that they ought to be leaving alone, just doing them quickly and getting the hell out.

Howard Hawks
In all the background scores I do, I take care to see that the theme enriches the storyline and does not deviate from the mood of the scenes, context, characters and the entire movie.

Nah, I’ve done sex scenes before, you know, like in video.

David Cronenberg
I’ve been in scenes with my brother where I’ve been absolutely emotionally terrified to go somewhere. But because he’s my brother, I feel safe.

Dean Winters
If I do too many takes, I’m too self-conscious. I think I’m better in first scenes.

Lea Seydoux
The thing is, when we do fight scenes, when we kill people in the movies, they bring in experts to choreograph it bit by bit, because you can’t really kill someone, and you don’t want to really hurt them.

Annabella Sciorra
I have two concerns with my work: having good things to act, and getting paid. In that order. Although if you’re not getting paid well, that order can change. But that’s what I’m concerned about. Good scenes. Decent money.

Terry O’Quinn
Some of our best writers are self taught. Screenwriting is a combo of craft and art. The craft part can be taught, about how to be visual and economical with scenes. However, finally it’s the individuality of the writer that will come into play.

Sriram Raghavan
I’ve had people ask me to come and work for them. I went to Vienna and did three scenes in a movie for a guy that I met at a retrospective of Cassavetes films. It’s a great way to travel, to meet people, to see different countries and cultures.

Seymour Cassel
I never meant to be in romantic comedies; it’s just what ended up happening. But they are tricky, in a post-1960s sexual revolution way. It was easier when you couldn’t have sex scenes: everything crackled very nicely. They’re not easy.

Hugh Grant
You see, one of the things about being a Housewife, and a New Jersey Housewife in particular, is that most of the drama seems to happen behind the scenes when the cameras aren’t around.

Teresa Giudice
It’s very interesting how life imitates art, and art imitates life; I find, whenever I read scenes of some magnitude, I’m like, ‘Oh, I feel like I’ve experienced this,’ or ‘I am experiencing this,’ or ‘I might start to experience it soon.’

Katherine Moennig
Every time one can write a self-deluded song, you are way ahead of the game, way ahead. Self-delusion is the basis of nearly all the great scenes in all the great plays, from ‘Oedipus’ to ‘Hamlet.’

Stephen Sondheim
Throughout my career, when I was finished with the drawing for one film I would go up to the story department and help develop sequences. Sometimes these were for scenes that I would animate later on.

Marc Davis
I’m drawn to scenes in movies where you just see characters turning off lights in a room or putting the groceries away; it’s like, ‘I understand that.’ We all have to get ready for bed, and we all do it in a different way, and yet it’s all strangely familiar and strangely human.

Abigail Spencer
Sponsorship is sometimes about people behind the scenes who are sitting in rooms determining your assignments and your next career step, and you don’t even know who they are.

Cathy Engelbert
I love directing scenes that I’m not in because suddenly I really feel like a filmmaker which is a different thing.

Lena Dunham
Usually climax scenes have emotional or action scenes but Podaa Podi’ has a climax with a dance performance.

Vignesh Shivan
David and Ellen Siminoff are legends in Silicon Valley – they are two of the most influential mentors to top executives and leaders behind the scenes, with long track records of success.

Joe Lonsdale
Things develop in front of my camera, and then I will try to do the best out of it. I am close, but in most of the scenes, I am trying not to be seen. I think that’s the trick. I think it starts in your heart, goes to the head, and the head puts it into the finger.

Anja Niedringhaus
‘Game of Thrones’ has kind of got the Midas touch, certainly for the lead actors and those recurring guest stars. It’s the show that can do no wrong because it’s so well produced. My contribution is short, but I think, in my mind, it was sweet because it involved such elaborate scenes.

Luke Roberts
I’m always seeing stuff and imagining scenes in my head when I’m making music.

Flying Lotus
I like talky scenes.

Martin Freeman
I write scenes – often quite long scenes – mainly because I still get seduced into writing six lines where one and a half will do.

Tom Stoppard
‘American Honey’ takes you into the feelings of a girl travelling through the United States while giddily in love. You see modern America through her intense feelings. But again and again the film pulls the rug out from under your feet – scenes never play out as you expect.

Adam Curtis
I don’t know which other actor has done as many hot scenes as I have. I pretty much have the monopoly in the bed scene market in Bollywood.

Emraan Hashmi
The only reason I was offered ‘Punisher’ was because I had made an indie film that was rated R for violence and was filled with fight scenes.

Lexi Alexander
For me, it’s difficult to even walk around in cotton sarees; imagine doing scenes in them!

Nikita Dutta
I start with the history, and I ask myself, ‘What are the great turning points? What are the big dramatic scenes that are essential to telling the story?’

Ken Follett
If the Russians masterminded fraud for 40 years at the highest state level in sports, operating behind the scenes to corrupt sports, what else are they capable of?

Bryan Fogel
A study by the Parents Television Council, a media watchdog group, found scenes of graphic violence and gore are increasing in TV dramas – and particularly on NBC.

Elizabeth Flock
It’s too bad I’m not a flirt. When I’m on the sets, I’m too busy working on my scenes to look at the ladies.

Randeep Hooda
I want to direct one day. I want to write my own thing and really be behind the scenes because you have more creative control.

Madeline Zima
Movies have to handle time very efficiently. They’re about stringing scenes together in the present. Novels aren’t necessarily about that.

Richard Russo
I like to give dimension to shots inside action scenes. It’s demanding because you have to rehearse a lot of things happening at the same time and frame all those things in a shot. But I feel like when you accomplish that then you’ve got a cool action scene.

Jose Padilha
One week I was in school and the next I’m at Leavesden Studios in Dumbledore’s office reading scenes with Daniel Radcliffe. Weird. And terrifying for such a huge ‘Harry Potter’ fan.

Evanna Lynch
During the course of the seven years I played scenes with an oil slick, I played a scene with a grain of rice. Sometimes with indescribable creatures. I remember having a conversation with something which was simply a smell, that’s all. It was part of our job.

Patrick Stewart
‘Raaz Reboot’ doesn’t have extreme boldness, but I was apprehensive about the kissing scenes.

Kriti Kharbanda
The best thing about being a film producer is I get to spend 99 per cent of my time behind the scenes.

Kevin Feige
Actors love to act all those death scenes.

Colin Baker
The pageant movie I’m obsessed with is ‘Miss Congeniality’, hands down! I could quote everything from that movie. I love so many scenes, but I always find myself quoting the scene when Sandra Bullock goes, ‘I really do just want world peace!’

Olivia Culpo
As a newspaper reporter, I covered and was around a fair number of crime scenes involving juvenile delinquents, and few things bothered me more than listening to their parents. Crying, ranting, proclaiming how great their children were despite being kicked out of school or previous run-ins with the law.

LZ Granderson
I couldn’t care less about who sees my bits… My friends asked how I could do scenes like that and not get excited, but it wasn’t like that. My bits looked the size of a cashew nut!

Colin Farrell
The tech titans and the tech guys who I most admire are the ones behind the scenes.

Andre Iguodala
It’s hard sometimes, especially with a book like ‘Scorch Trials,’ to truly adapt to the way the book is because so many of the scenes that take place in the book are really graphed and painted for the imagination. Trying to bring that to life is a really big task.

Dexter Darden
Everyone realizes when it comes to fight scenes, that’s gonna be my wheelhouse.

Food was supposed to be a slightly bigger part of ‘Heartburn,’ and it actually didn’t turn out to be because of me. I just didn’t find a way to make it a bigger part of the movie as I should have, and we cut several scenes in which food was a major character.

Nora Ephron
I don’t think there is a single character in ‘The Graduate’ that is not a phony, to one degree or another, except Benjamin and Elaine, and only in the scenes when they are alone together.

Ron Howard
Congress suffers a great deal of criticism for its partisan acrimony. But while we may disagree politically, and air our opposition in this chamber, it is the conversation behind the scenes that cements and defines our relationships.

Kay Bailey Hutchison
I have never done intimate scenes on any of my shows, and now, after marriage, it’s a complete ‘No.’

Kratika Sengar
I have these huge black foam boards on the wall, and tacked to them, I have these white punch cards with my story ideas, scenes and notes.

Robert Crais
What’s fun now is that I have a show at USA that I co-wrote called ‘Benched.’ I’m completely behind the scenes and not the actor at all.

Michaela Watkins
This was basically the first time I got to act in action scenes, with things blowing up all around me. It sounds corny, but I think every actor would like to – at least once in his or her career – play the person who saves the entire world.

Lukas Haas
I don’t go by the screen time. Even if I have one or two scenes, it is essential that people remember me.

Aishwarya Rajesh
In the following pages I have endeavoured to describe all that appeared to me most important and interesting among the events and the scenes that came under my notice during my sojourn in the interior of Africa.

John Hanning Speke
Usually, I don’t revisit a scene once shot. However, in ‘Gentleman,’ every morning on the sets, I had to revisit the last four scenes and then shoot for the next set of scenes.

I want to be behind the scenes, and learn more. What cameras to use, what lenses to use, what shots I want to get. And it takes time, so being on movies and sets, I just learn.

No more bare bodies in film scenes for me. For my children’s sake, I must stop. The other kids at school keep throwing it up to my children, and they are not kind.

Ellen Barkin
The fight scenes in ‘The World’s End’ have a certain balletic quality to them.

Nick Frost
Before that I wanted to be a magazine illustrator – I probably would have painted Gothic scenes.

Ira Levin
When we had the infamous mealtime scenes, food fights would inevitably develop.

Charlene Tilton
I like a twisted sense of humour. On ‘A History of Violence,’ David Cronenberg and I would be doing the grimmest scenes and laugh a lot.

Viggo Mortensen
I love doing scenes with two actors in an elevator, but sometimes I’m a little boy, and I like swinging a sword with 800 soldiers around.

Michiel Huisman
We went through all the scenes and they became kind of funny and they expanded a little bit and because it seemed to be working so well in the movie, they added a couple of things later on in the movie and that’s how it turned out.

Eugene Levy
I’ve gotten to work with people like Kristin Chenoweth and Chita Rivera… Seeing their process is so interesting. Seeing that these people aren’t immortal – that they go through the same motions as we do and ask for feedback and break down scenes… They have to work, too, and that’s really exciting to see.

Andrew Keenan-Bolger
I would say I was not working in the real sense in ‘Paiyaa.’ After doing very heavy scenes in my first two films, in ‘Paiya,’ I was romancing a girl, talking all sorts of funny things, and doing all light things just as if I were not acting!

You don’t often see fight scenes with people who have no idea how to fight.

Seth Rogen
If you gather a lot of stuff, then you write it, write in scenes with dialogue. Somewhere in the middle, rising from all this research like strong metal towers, is your opinions.

Jimmy Breslin
When I realised, on ‘The Straits,’ that physical work in the theatre takes much longer than directing scenes, it was like a eureka moment. If you want to work physically, you have to accommodate it, and it takes a disproportionate amount of time.

John Tiffany
My first student film was Orientation, which was basically the set-up for Animal House. There are a couple of scenes that we later borrowed in some form.

Ivan Reitman
Maudlin scenes where people pour their heart out to one another? I don’t want to see it.

Peter Hedges
I would have to say honestly I was very pleased to be in a film whether it was good or bad with De Niro, Norton and Brando even if I don’t have any scenes with them, I thought it was pretty good company to keep.

Angela Bassett
Directing is something I always wanted to do. I started when I was 13 directing scenes in high school and then plays in college with my theatre company.

David Schwimmer
I was so passionate about wanting the role in ‘Like Crazy,’ I filmed myself in the shower because that’s where one of the scenes was set. It just felt instinctive. It was a close up! It would have been strange if I’d sent off a wide shot of myself. That’s not the kind of work I want to do!

Felicity Jones
The stuff I’m designing, I want my action scenes to be intense.

James Wan
Sometimes you do complete run-throughs of scenes, sometimes you break scenes down into little bits. It just depends on what the actors like to do. It’s almost like jamming.

Andrew Dominik
The most boring scenes are the scenes where a character is alone.

Chuck Palahniuk
‘Twin Peaks’ was incredibly slow, methodic, taking shots that were uncomfortably long, with a lot of scenes where there was barely any dialogue. ‘Riverdale’ has a much faster pace.

Madchen Amick
The love scenes that worked, regardless of the director, were the ones where the actors weren’t fearful. When somebody was fearful, you could see it right away. It takes you out of the story, and that’s to be avoided at all costs.

Jennifer Beals
Anytime you’re rewarded for the success you have, you’re going to be happy because you put the body of work in. A lot of hard work. A lot of training. A lot of things you do behind the scenes.

Aaron Donald
War scenes are less difficult than love scenes.

Jean-Jacques Annaud
I had a scene where the chair was meant to slide off the table, but do you think it would slide off? No. We were running out of time and we had to get these scenes done urgently.

Dannii Minogue
‘Mr. Robot’ is more directly about technology, and ‘Homecoming’ deals more with the pharmaceutical industry, but I think they’re all part and parcel of this growing sense that things are happening behind the scenes at our expense, and we’re not aware of it.

Sam Esmail
When I was at Villa and I was captain there and I had the opportunity to go to City, it played on my mind I wouldn’t be as pivotal. So initially I didn’t want to go, but a lot of things happened behind the scenes and I realised I had to go.

Fabian Delph
Obviously, New York and Boston and Los Angeles have pretty vibrant entrepreneurial scenes.

Jason Calacanis
It is totally different making films in the East than in the West. In the East, I make my own Jackie Chan films, and it’s like my family. Sometimes I pick up the camera because I choreograph all the fighting scenes, even when I’m not fighting. I don’t have my own chair. I just sit on the set with everybody.

Jackie Chan
I write narrative nonfiction, creating lively scenes through action and the use of quotes from firsthand accounts, all based on rigorous research. If I say a character leaned against a fence on a windy day, than I have at least two sources to back up these details.

Jim Murphy
The thing about ‘On the Doll,’ I was doing ‘Nip/Tuck’ at the time, and I was doing only 5 or 6 scenes an episode. So I had some free time, and I wanted to do something completely different than what I’ve ever done before.

Brittany Snow
It’s hard to leave behind scenes and characters I am in love with.

John Harrison
I’m always surprised when actors say they don’t like sex scenes. It’s like a freebie. It’s fun to make out with someone. So yes, thumbs up on that.

Mackenzie Davis
E-Verify is a very commonsense reform that we can implement here in the state of Florida. I think I share a lot of Floridians’ frustration that it didn’t pass and a lot of the politics that were taking place behind the scenes.

Adam Hasner
Some of my earliest work was in comics. I tend to think in pictures and always like to write scenes possessing the dynamic you find in comics.

Michael Moorcock
When you do scenes that are just exposition, they feel false.

Gavin O’Connor
That’s what I love about those old movies – the music is like a constant companion. Even in scenes that aren’t particularly dramatic, like a woman checking her watch, you hear the music as a comment on that action.

Petra Haden
As for the herbal cigarettes, for the most part I don’t smoke as much as the guys do. I’m usually just strutting around a bit more so I don’t actually have to be inhaling it. I’m lucky because I do have scenes where the cigarettes work beautifully to punctuate certain things I’m saying.

Christina Hendricks
Some scenes cry out for a certain kind of treatment. The kind we’re conditioned by years of film-watching to expect.

Henry Mancini
I have done so many love scenes in the past that I have learned how to pull off a sexy smoulder on the dance floor.

Cherie Lunghi
My tutors at drama school commended and criticised my use of comedy in my acting for a long time at drama school. They said I had a tendency to somehow perform the most tragic of scenes in a slightly flippant way.

John Bradley-West
Half of ‘Mudbound’ were shots I stole in between other scenes.

Rachel Morrison
Mostly what you remember and enjoy are the scenes you played with people. And quite often, they’re the combative scenes!

Diana Rigg
The process of doing films is not my favorite, but I love television. Television is a quicker turnaround. You shoot more during the day, which makes me feel more productive. It would be like, ‘I did five scenes today and ten pages.’ That’s television.

Jaime Pressly
The way films establish the order of scenes is very artificial.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
The only time producers fed me lines on ‘Laguna Beach’ were more fake phone calls or pickup scenes. We’d film for nine months out of the year, and then they would start cutting episodes together, and they would realize that they needed a specific scene.

Kristin Cavallari
The divorce in my family was really amicable. There were no fireworks. It was all sort of behind the scenes, if you will. None of us kids ever saw any argument.

Adam Scott
In something like ‘Frank,’ which is a comedy, albeit a strange and emotional one, you can absolutely put in deleted scenes, and we did because they were just funny and great, but they weren’t necessary in the overall structure.

Lenny Abrahamson
Yeah, you know, if I’m having an emotional scene I do like to go off and be by myself; not to say that I’m a method actor or anything like that, but for scenes like that that are more emotional, I do like to take that night off and not be so social.

Shay Mitchell
I think L.A. actors don’t have much continuity, so you kind of have to force the issue by doing plays and putting up scenes and staying in class.

Mark Pellegrino
I don’t start with a list of historical scenes that I want to include in the book. At a certain point, the narrative totally takes over, and everything that I include I can only incorporate if it answers to the internal terms of the novel.

Rachel Kushner
I used to send away for eight-minute Super 8 movies of various Ray Harryhausen scenes advertised on the back of ‘Famous Monsters of Filmland’ magazine.

Peter Jackson
There should be more love in Toronto when it comes to the music and entertainment scenes instead of keeping that Screwface Capital name. There should be more artists eating together, more artists celebrating together and more artists making music together. That’s how I feel.

James Franco is a Method actor. I respect Method actors, but he never snapped out of character. Whenever we’d have to get in the ring for boxing scenes, and even during practice, the dude was full-on hitting me.

Tyrese Gibson
There were few people, perhaps, more passionately fond of travelling, and seeing fresh places, and new scenes, than myself; but now, since, by the grace of God, I have seen beauty in the Lord Jesus, I have lost my taste for these things.

George Muller
The downside to making movies at a gallop like we did with ‘Wish You Were Here’ is that we’re shooting four or five scenes in a day, and it’s very exhilarating, but you worry at the end of the day that you missed some details because you were moving too quick, and you just gotta trust and be ready straightaway.

Joel Edgerton
If you play comedic scenes like they’re really serious, then it’s so much more funny than if you’re going for a laugh.

Patton Oswalt
Over the years, I’ve trained myself to speak using the same language I would use if I were typing: meaning using full sentences in the way that paragraphs and scenes are arranged.

Kevin J. Anderson
He allowed us to choreograph the sex scenes.

Linda Fiorentino
Once there are more African Americans and Asian Americans behind the scenes as producers, writers, and directors, I think more inclusive casting will happen.

Nicole Ari Parker
I love ‘Breathless,’ and ‘Paris, Texas,’ and ‘Badlands.’ I was obsessed with those films in my teens. I remember watching ‘Badlands’ and being amazed that there were these scenes in which nobody said anything and the silence told the whole story.

Agyness Deyn
My mom was a model, so she’s been really good about giving me tips on how to navigate behind the scenes – like the importance of being nice to everyone on set and remembering people’s names, to how to be a positive part of the photo shoot and stuff like that.

Gigi Hadid
If you write a bunch of different characters with a bunch of different opinions, you end up with these long scenes of everyone standing around talking.

Michael Arndt
There are no crowds out there demanding to see smoking scenes in movies.

Joe Eszterhas
I like flawed characters very much. A lot of times I get asked to do parts that are kind of small but key – three-scene roles that are three kick-ass scenes. Growing up, watching as many movies as I did, I was always into character actors like that.

Bobby Cannavale
I made three or four different fonts during ‘Short Term 12’ -‘ it was how I’d calm my mind between scenes. I have graph paper and gel pens, and I would do the alphabet: just do ‘a’ over and over again until I got it perfect and then go to ‘b’ and then ‘c’.

Brie Larson
This is the way I look at sex scenes: I have basically been doing them for a living for years. Trying to seduce an audience is the basis of rock ‘n roll, and if I may say so, I’m pretty good at it.

Jon Bon Jovi
There’s something really fun about being scared, and I guess that was at least part of why I wanted to film certain scenes from my new book, ‘Skeleton Creek.’

Patrick Carman
There’s a lot of research behind the scenes that you don’t get to see, but I have an instinct that my dad nurtured from when I was born. I was very lucky then.

Steve Irwin
Apparently, I’m very good at firing a gun without blinking, which is unusual. That’s why so many action characters have to wear sunglasses during shoot-out scenes. That’s my party trick.

Kate Beckinsale
My last audition for ‘Baby Driver,’ I had to meet with Jon Hamm and go through the scenes. I was a bit nervous: ‘What if Jon Hamm dislikes me? This is the end.’ I also watched ‘Mad Men’ religiously, so that didn’t help with my nerves.

Eiza Gonzalez
You can’t steal every scene. There are scenes in which you need to sit back and do a lot less, verbally, physically.

Luke Pasqualino
You have to be able to bounce back and deal with disappointment, failure and weaknesses, and a lot of that happens behind the scenes for teams that are very successful.

Maya Moore
When I first read the scenes I got to audition, I just could tell there was obviously something there. The writing speaks for itself, but also it’s just the fact that ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is such an amazing story. I had never read the book before I auditioned.

Madeline Brewer
We help kids and fans of all ages find their social scenes. Find their place. Find their demeanor.

Shawn Crahan
Soaps have a schedule where you have to be done in 15 minutes. With an hour show, there’s no way to get off schedule. On a movie, it’s a lot easier to go back and reshoot scenes. I wasn’t used to that at all… taking the time to really make each scene as good as it can be, which you can’t do on soaps.

Lucy Deakins
I can only speak for myself, but you never set out to be funny. You just set out to play the scenes real, and hopefully the funny comes.

Jason Jones
In ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls,’ Hemingway cozies up to revolution by romanticizing it (and not only with those execrable love scenes).

Madison Smartt Bell
I always say one of the great scenes from ‘The Dirty Dozen’ is where Jim Brown has to get grenades in the chimney.

Joe Russo
When you have quick scenes, it becomes difficult to ascertain where your character fits and where they’re going. I always enjoy scenes that have a movement to them.

Benedict Samuel
All writers, in all viewpoints, must choose which information and scenes will be presented, and in which order. In that sense, the author is always represented as a point of view in a work of fiction. His hand can always be detected by the discerning.

Nancy Kress
I would always prefer radio or working behind the scenes where I don’t have to be seen. I don’t like how appearance oriented TV is (especially now that I’m middle aged!). But I am developing a show revolving around animal rescue which will hopefully entertain and maybe do a bit of good for the cause as well.

Susan Olsen
What’s important is to have more women creators behind the scenes, being producers and being in charge. That will ultimately help push this boys’-club, locker-room mentality out the door.

Phoebe Robinson
I think I’ve learned how to be a better boss. I’m the one running the show now, and in the past, I’ve always kind of been looking at other people to make the decisions. I feel more confident to run not just my show, but behind the scenes, too.

Maren Morris
I think football saves many people. It can give you a life of luxury, but people don’t see all the effort that goes in behind the scenes. That might mean not seeing your family or missing your mother’s birthday; many players are so focused that they miss the birth of their children.

Alexis Sanchez
Because of ‘Line Of Duty’s proper adherence to police procedure, by definition we end up doing some very long interrogation scenes which are difficult to learn, and require lots of concentration to sustain them across shooting.

Adrian Dunbar
Usually a video’s fun, but after a while, after a couple hours it’s like work because you’ve got to keep doing the scenes over and over and over again.

Ronnie Radke
I’d like to be played as a child by Natalie Wood. I’d have some romantic scenes as Audrey Hepburn and have gritty black-and-white scenes as Patricia Neal.

Gloria Steinem
I had fun doing it, but acting ain’t really my thing. I am more of a production/director type. I would rather be behind the scenes and organizing and putting things together like that.

Dr. Dre
I’m not really trying to get in the acting field that hard. I’m trying to really be behind the scenes and direct and produce.

In ‘Purab Aur Paschim,’ there’s one of the nicer patriotic scenes which is patriotic without going jingoistic. There’s a scene set in a rotating restaurant, where Pran, who has left India, is completely running India down and Manoj Kumar is taking up for India. And there’s that song ‘Jab Zero Diya.’

Farah Khan
In ‘There’s Something About Mary’ and ‘Dumb & Dumber,’ I ended up improvising quite a bit of my scenes, and later I didn’t even remember what I’d said because I just winged it. When I went and saw the movie, I was as stunned as everyone else was.

Harland Williams
When ‘Pune-52’ was offered to me, I liked the script, but I wasn’t convinced about the kissing and other intimate scenes. I tried talking to the director, but things didn’t work out.

Amruta Khanvilkar
What’s mostly left after a match? The scenes in front of the goal where the attackers are the highlights of the play. But doing the spectacular is not particularly important to me. I just want to play for my team.

Manuel Neuer
There are more and more adult subjects with explicit language or explicit scenes… Yes, I feel there should be a category for such films so that instead of cutting it, censoring it or deleting a few scenes we can show it in its entirety.

Sharmila Tagore
I’ve consciously taken on material that’s a bit too much for me but not an overreach. The first movie, just about performances. ‘The Town,’ I learned how to work broader material, develop tension, direct bigger scenes, action sequences. ‘Argo,’ I experimented with film stock, widened the scope of my geography.

Ben Affleck
Kissing scenes are never romantic or sexy. They’re actually super technical, like, ‘Move your head; you’re blocking her light,’ or, ‘Stop looking like an idiot when you kiss her.’

Will Poulter
I don’t understand what’s going on behind the scenes fully, but Chelsea’s a massive club, and I understand why chances don’t come so often.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek
Locations are all tough, all miserable. I never left the sound stage for 18 years at Warners. We never went outside the studio, not even for big scenes.

Bette Davis
These scenes deal with what happened before Hannibal Lecter was captured for the first time.

Dino De Laurentiis
I tend to stay in character between scenes… to be rather serious on set, but here’s why, and I think people will find it surprising. I’m one of the worst ‘corpses’ on a movie set, which means you can’t keep a straight face. You start to get the giggles and you can’t stop.

Christian Bale
It is, alas, chiefly the evil emotions that are able to leave their photographs on surrounding scenes and objects and whoever heard of a place haunted by a noble deed, or of beautiful and lovely ghosts revisiting the glimpses of the moon?

Algernon Blackwood
There’s scenes where I really want to get things right, and all the kids know me as the person who says, ‘Sorry.’ I think I’ve gotten a lot better with that, but it’s still the thing that I’m still worried about, trying to get the scene perfect.

Sophia Lillis
Chase scenes normally just have to be exciting and, you know, not a lot of emotion you need to go through. It’s just about getting from A to B with as much excitement as you can.

Hildur Gudnadottir
That’s the thing about awards – it’s for the people who do all the hard work behind the scenes. An award is just a clap at them.

Something that I learned from ‘Friday Night Lights,’ sometimes if you have four or five scenes in an episode, it’s not having less than having 10. It’s what you do with those scenes.

Jason Katims
