Famous quotes by Danny Boyle
A lot of film directors are quite scared of actors. They are a bit of a nightmare sometimes, but I like them. It looks like cunning, but you try to get extra things from them all the time, by stealth, by making them feel confident, so they trust you and you can push a bit.Danny Boyle
Actors are steeped in a world of agents and where the next job is coming from and what are their expenses and what is the hotel like. You want to take them out of that world and dump them into another world, so that when you meet them on the screen they don't seem like the guy who was in two others movies that year.Danny Boyle
I always think, when there's stuff that people don't like, I always say that if I have another success, I'll enjoy it more, but you don't really.Danny Boyle

I tend to score with songs from Western pop music.Danny Boyle
I'd love to do a modern-day musical that's full of original music. To get your contemporaries to sing and dance without looking foolish and for it to be transformational and magical and all those things a musical is supposed to be.Danny Boyle
I'm a big sports fan. Football. Cricket.Danny Boyle
I've sort of escaped my background, as people often do, through art and culture.Danny Boyle
It's a good place when all you have is hope and not expectations.Danny Boyle
It's not so much what you learn about Mumbai, it's what you learn about yourself, really. It's a funny old hippie thing, but it's true as well. You find out a lot about yourself and your tolerance, and about your inclusiveness.Danny Boyle
Movies about space raise those questions of what we're doing here, and that inevitably introduces a spiritual dimension.Danny Boyle
My dad was a labourer and my mum had exactly the same job as Noel Gallagher's mum - she was a dinner lady at our local school. Everyone comes over from Ireland and they get the same jobs.Danny Boyle
People say you never remember anybody who dies in movies, and it's true, you don't. You don't even remember people who disappear.Danny Boyle
Some of us are interested in directors, but really the vast majority of us are interested in actors. You experience the films through the actors, so they're all locked into your imagination in some kind of layer of fantasy or hatred or wherever they settle into your imagination.Danny Boyle
The extraordinary thing about India is that it's such a family place. It's full of families everywhere.Danny Boyle
The problem with being British... I don't know if it's me being British or being raised a strict Catholic, but you never really enjoy success.Danny Boyle
You can have great sequences with music, but if you don't have the acting you're bored after 15 minutes. Or not bored, but you're like, 'So what?'Danny Boyle
You experience the films through the actors, so they're all locked into your imagination in some kind of layer of fantasy or hatred or wherever they settle into your imagination.Danny Boyle
