I've done five films directed by women. I did like it.

I’ve been really lucky to have had a variety of roles, and I don’t think I’m in danger of being typecast as the romantic lead. I think there’s honour in working as constantly as you can. That isn’t easy. And I’m no matinee idol.
Tobias Menzies

Well, there’s just some universal truths in a way that I’ve just observed to be true. You read Voltaire. You read modern literature.
