Favorite Quotes from Mark Strong

“I’m very organized and tidy in my home life and I generally do something myself rather than farm it out to somebody else. I don’t have an assistant or anything because I think I can do it myself.” – Mark Strong 

“I’ve put my friends and family through the wringer over the years, I have to say, by doing unspeakable things to people, not the least of which was pulling out poor George Clooney’s fingernails in Syriana.” – Mark Strong 

“You need to try to find a way to humanize your villains. Genuine villains, in real life, still have mothers and daughters and sisters, and they fall in love. They don’t walk around with a big sign saying, “Bad guy,” on their head. They think they’re good guys. If you can play that, I think it makes it more interesting.” – Mark Strong 

“In the film industry you never really know if all the various ingredients will come together – sometimes they do, and sometimes they don’t. As an actor, you don’t have much control over those things. It’s a director’s medium in that sense. All you can really do is minimize the risks of being involved in something that might not work and look for something that also suits you.” – Mark Strong 

“I loved making The Imitation Game and it’s really gratifying to hear the audience’s response to the character that I play. It was just a little thing that I did because I really liked the film and I liked Benedict [Cumberbatch] and I loved Morten’s [director Morten Tyldum] previous film, Headhunters. For me, it was something I did thinking, “Wow, this is a lovely quality piece of work.” – Mark Strong 

 

3 Powerful Lessons from Mark Strong

1. The Past

You sign for a sequel for everything these days, just in case, options. In the past, you avoided them like the plague because it meant somewhere down the road you couldn’t take a job because you had to do a sequel. Now it’s a feature of pretty much any feature you do.

 

2. Acting Can Be Hard

Acting can be a very cruel mistress. It’s not a meritocracy. In other walks of life, by being good at what you do, you can achieve success. That isn’t always the case in this business. Every actor knows that.

 

3. The Right Time

When Strong talk to younger actors, and young people in general, who are holding off having children because they think they cannot fit them into their busy lives, he now knows, and he’s able to say to them, ‘You’ve just got to get on with it; there is never going to be the right time.
