I did a lot of musicals when I first started my career, so I can carry a tune well.
I went back over the sketch books I’d filled at Sheffield for ideas and discovered Wallace and Gromit, except Gromit was a cat then. I made them into Plasticene shapes and started ‘A Grand Day...
All the Warner actors were real actors. They started in theater and led very straightforward lives – you never saw entourages around. The MGM girls were the glamour girls, and they always had the makeup...

The things that I’ve done that have totally been remembered, they’ve always started with the same kind of engine, they’ve always started with someone saying ‘I have to make this film – I’m going to...
One thing I do personally started 20 years ago. I started meditating, and I know twice a day I can kind of let everything drop. It’s just about being quiet, like drawing back the day,...
It was failing part of my Ph.D. that led me into novel-writing. By then I was 29, had remarried and had a second baby. It struck me that I’d lost my path in life and...

Growing up, my grandmother did not want worldly music in the house. Then when I went out to California, I started listening to Spanish music, mostly Mexican music. But were I in Egypt, I would...
I started writing because I got so frustrated that there weren’t enough plays that had roles for young black women in them.

The real excitement and big deal for me started when I got cast in the first X-Men, which was sort of a fluke.
When I first starting conceiving series like ‘Courtney,’ ‘Polly,’ ‘How Loathsome,’ etc., I was shooting for closed story-arcs but open-ended concepts. Then I started realizing I was committing myself to potentially endless series.

I started a second novel seven times and I had to throw them away.
When we first started playing we did a lot of rehearsing. We used to write out everything. In fact, that’s the way everybody rehearses: we play the tunes and improvise.

There’s a plaque on our wall that says we’ve sold over 65 million albums, and I don’t feel I’ve accomplished anything. I feel like I’m just getting started.

Like patents – which also seek to protect the little guy – unions were started for all the right reasons. But like patents, they can be twisted into something that hurts innovation, competition, and ultimately...
I started out as a drummer, and now play with a back-to-basics rock band called the ‘Luddites.’ I’m happiest when I’m behind the kit.
I was interested in opera and it seemed to me that the only possible theatre for contemporary opera would be television. So I started working towards a kind of television kind of opera.
