1 [on making the unscripted drama Suspects (2014)] It was daunting to begin with. None of us had ever done anything like this before. However, it was quite electrifying, and now, looking back, it's hard to figure out a way we could have done it better.
2 There was a great speech at the start of the Young Vic's Faust. There was an old man in a nursing home saying, "I've played Hamlet, I've played Richard II, I've played Lear, I've played them all." I was sitting there thinking, "That is what I want to do." I want to be able to look back and say I've played amazing parts, worked with great actors and amazing directors. That sounds very cheesy, but that really struck a chord with me
3 I went from rarely ever reading plays, to reading one a day. I went from attending the theatre two or three times a year, to two or three times a week. And this was on top of 12 or 13 hours a day learning and honing my craft. I immersed myself. You could almost say I shut myself off from the world, so much was the singularity of my focus.
4 A great actor is a great listener. And that's something I am learning. Listening is the key. You can't react truthfully unless you listen. If I could have brought that to every show I've done so far I would sleep easier at night. Listen every day. Just as the curtain comes up, I always say "listen".
5 When you're on stage a deep breath is very much physicalized and in the body, whereas you can almost breathe through your eyes on television; you don't get that on stage
6 Acting is living truthfully in imaginary circumstances
7 I've learned to work my bollocks off. With auditions I read the play twice if not three times before. You work out the story and the character and the corners and the beat changes of the text, and I feel you have to want to try and make it as specific as you can, that this is Damien's version of the character.
8 A good actor is someone who gives everything. Don't be afraid to be vulnerable, don't be afraid to make a prick of yourself on stage, because that's what people want to see. That's what I try to bring.
9 I feel very privileged to be honest. It was a big leap of faith for everyone to take. Cast, crew and all the fans. When I got the job I was like - 'Oh no, don't replace Mitchell with another Irish Vampire!' But the characters are so different. We're just so excited that everyone has taken to it and really enjoys it.
