Neil Jackson Quotes 2058487

I've played a lot of villains. The villains are always fun because you can just go fractionally bigger than life.

I wrote my first song on the guitar a few weeks after that. — Neil Jackson

It's funny - when I first started as an actor, obviously there were long periods of being idle and all you want to do is work.

Fitness has always been a big part of my life, so I train twice a day, every day, as I always have done, but also eating very healthfully. I don't eat sugar, I don't have caffeine, I don't eat wheat - I look after my body outside and inside. It's just a part of who I've always been. — Neil Jackson

I didn't have the money to put myself through drama school, so I thought - naively - that if I wrote a play and put it on at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, agents would see me and that would be my ticket to Hollywood.

When I was eight, my mum found me humming to myself and scribbling on a scrap of paper. When she asked me what I was doing, I got shy.
