On becoming the next James Bond:
"Yes, I think it would be wonderful. Daniel [Craig] is doing an amazing job and he'll continue to do it for a bit. But if it ever comes to that, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it."
On his stardom in America:
"I had no ambition to go to the US and be in a TV show. It's not like I've rejected something or decided that I've found something better. Your life just takes you off in strange and different directions. I would certainly hope that I Haven't been in my last Shakespeare play. "I just don't consider myself to be, you know, an American actor. I don't want that life. People jump from series to series to series and they make a great living doing that. That's not what I want to do. I want to do theater and film and direct my own things and develop. But essentially, I want to be in England."
On his childhood:
"As a boy, I was quite shy to start with, until I hit about eight. Then I was really not shy at all."
