Brydon's father grew up on the same street as fellow Welshman Anthony Hopkins.
Brydon's brush with celebrities of the future occurred during his schooldays in Swansea, Wales. While attending his first school, he was one year behind Eddie Izzard, at his second school was then unknown Catherine Zeta-Jones, and at the third was his future Gavin & Stacey (2007) co-star Ruth Jones.

I think, if you've got children, that's your life. Your 'showbiz' life, if you want to call it that, is a separate thing, and it isn't everything to me.
When you're a kid, I think you want to be a film star. And I'm not as enamoured with that any more. The reality of that life is a lot of travel, and a lot of being away, which is impractical because I have four children, so I don't want to be away that much, not the other side of the world away.
Plus, I've always felt that, if the worst came to the worst in my career, I could always fall back to doing voices on the radio.
There are some people who only know me for cornflakes ads, and that's fine. I have a charmed life.
When you're doing stand-up, you can comment if something fails, get a laugh from that.
I don't think any of my kids would have a good word to say about me. I think they deny that they even know me. At school, they pretend they are Anton du Beke's kids.
I had a moment where I realised I could do silly voices, that lots of people I knew couldn't do silly voices, and that thus I must be able to make money doing silly voices.
I like witty people, people who can be witty on the spot.
I still have lots of friends from my pre-success days.
I'm a very, very handsome man, and have had to come to terms with it... um, do I like the way I look? In the right light, and with a following wind.
I'm prone to a more depressed outlook on life.
If you're a comedian, you are looking for material in daily life.
I think it's almost an indulgence to focus on the dark side of things. And as you get older, you want to focus on the positive.
Math was a two-part exam and I once didn't go for the second part. I knew I'd done so badly on the first it was hopeless. I re-took it about four or five times. I think I eventually got it by getting the top GCSE grade.
I just look like someone with a long face. Not just A. P. McCoy himself, but some of the horses he rides.
The thing is, when I had my first success it did coincide with the end of my first marriage, and because I went on to have a very, very unhappy two years, I don't think I equate career success with personal happiness.
I do seem to look like a lot of people.
