They pushed my limits quite often – once every day, I think! I think that played a big role in my breaking point being bigger than most players. Not all players.

As an actor, every opportunity, every role, everything that I do is an opportunity to have someone have a human experience with my work. I don’t just want it to be about a cute wardrobe and a high paycheck.

I wouldn’t say there’s a need for the Spice Girls, but I’d say there’s a place for the Spice Girls. There’s certainly a place for them, but you don’t promote the Spice Girls at the expense of promoting what I think are good role models for girls. You need to create some kind of equality.

Let’s face it: Most of us don’t realize it, but we are failing our kids as reading role models. The best role models are in the home: brothers, fathers, grandfathers; mothers, sisters, grandmothers. Moms and dads, it’s important that your kids see you reading. Not just books – reading the newspaper is good, too.
The very first show I did was ‘Fame L.A.’ Everyone had talent… it was either dancing or acting or something like that. I was a singer, so I got my first role.

Once I’m committed to a role, I will go very deep into it, even when I’m not at work. I’ll keep on studying the script, maybe 40 or 50 times. I might call a scriptwriter at three in the morning to say I’ve thought of something new.
I have spent many years of my life in opposition, and I rather like the role.
People thought I was trying to say that women had no say, no rights. I was not saying that. I was saying that women had a role, a duty. When they want to have a say in government – though in Africa they are not expected to do that – they are not discouraged. They can do what they want to do.
True fans of the Constitution, like true fans of the national pastime, acknowledge the critical role of human judgment in making tough calls. We don’t expect flawless interpretation. We expect good faith. We demand honesty.

This may sound conceited, but the more predominant the role, the more comfortable I am on set.
If the role is challenging enough, I don’t see why I shouldn’t play an older man or a father figure. It is not about playing what you are in real life. We are called actors for a reason!
I’ve changed for the better. I’m much more selfless and humble and you’re reminded about what life’s really about. You love your kid so much that you just want to be a brilliant role model for them. It cleans up your act a bit.
When I got a call from Hansal Mehta, the CEO of White Feathers, asking me to come for one of their films, I was very happy. I thought they’d have an interesting role for me.

I always knew I wanted to play golf and go to college. I try hard to be a positive role model, especially on the golf course. I try to carry myself well, and don’t do anything outrageous. I try to play the game like a gentleman and give everyone respect. That’s how the game should be played.
I am pleased that my work has been recognized, and I hope to be a role model.
One time, the teacher was the storehouse of knowledge. That will no longer be so. So what would a teacher do? A very good teacher will play the role of augmenter. Also, the teacher will be located anywhere and helping students.
I think bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are great ideas. They should be allowed to be traded freely and used freely to find their appropriate role in the economy.
Doing science at the highest level is hard for anyone. It’s hard for women, and it’s hard for the men. And we need to have supportive mentors and role models we can look up to.

Australia – not western in geography, of course, but in every other respect for sure (it certainly doesn’t want to be regarded as Asian, God forbid) – loves nothing more than to throw its weight around in South-East Asia by playing peacekeeper, carrying out its role as the United States‘ regional policeman.
You know, we never grew up with Asian American role models in the entertainment industry, unfortunately. I’d never seen an Asian face singing on TV.

All my characters are me. I’m not a good enough actor to become a character. I hear about actors who become the role and I think ‘I wonder what that feels like.’ Because for me, they’re all me.
Very often, we think of leadership being at the very top of an organisation. I think what’s unique about ABG is that we have a very strong cadre of leaders across the organisation who are highly empowered and therefore play a very major role in the growth and evolution of the organization.
We were raised as Christians, and religion plays an important role for us.
I’m a big fan of Purdue as an institution and in its role of educating the next-generation workforce.

Mike Huckabee and indeed many of the Christian conservatives in the U.S. have far more in common with the Muslim Brotherhood than they’d like to admit, in that all of them very much want to see a role of religion in society.
For ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam,’ Guru Duttji wanted to cast Shashi Kapoor in the role of Bhootnath. However, Guru Duttji wanted bulk dates from Shashiji because he had already built a huge set and had acquired Meena Kumari’s dates.

The role of a trustee is to ensure beneficiaries get the best returns, without the trustee benefitting.

When I read that Khal Drogo role, I was blown away. I couldn’t believe it was happening. I had to have that role.

When we teach in pluralistic ways, there are two wonderful dividends. First of all, we reach more students, because some learn best through stories, some through works of art, some through role play etc. Second of all, we show what it is like really to understand something.
My first big mission for UNICEF in Ethiopia was just to attract attention, before it was too late, to conditions which threatened the whole country. My role was to inform the world, to make sure that the people of Ethiopia were not forgotten.

It is the role of good journalism to take on powerful abusers, and when powerful abusers are taken on, there’s always a bad reaction. So we see that controversy, and we believe that is a good thing to engage in.

I’ve played a lot of bad guys in my time, especially in movies. It’s delightful playing the villain. It’s almost the most interesting and most complicated role in a film.
I need time to do whatever I want to do. What happens to an actor that has no life experience? They don’t know how to act as a different role. So, that’s really important to do.
There’s no particular role that comes to mind that I’d like to take on, but for me, it’s about playing interesting characters and not just two-dimensional ones.

I’m bad in front of the camera. However, if someone gave me a small role in a film with two dialogues and one scene, I’d do it.
Community colleges play an important role in helping people transition between careers by providing the retooling they need to take on a new career.
The ‘Doom‘ thing is to be able to come at things with a different point of view. I decided the mask would just add to the mystique of the character as well as make Doom stand out. I though it’d be an easy way for people to see and differentiate between characters, sorta like when an actor gains weight for a role.
It’s great to be somewhat of a role model. I want to be a positive and good role model and lead by example and try to do the best I can. Playing good golf definitely draws attention, but I want to have a good attitude on the course and do the right things.

All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.
I’m not a Method actor. I don’t believe acting should be psychodrama. I look within myself and see what I can find to play the role with. If I’m playing a blind man, I don’t go around blindfolded for days. A lot of good actors would, but I don’t go in for that very much. I like to just make it up as I go along.
I didn’t have parents, so I lived in people’s homes… And because I grew up with no parental role models, I learned to become my own friend, eventually my own father and my own mother.
I auditioned for ‘The Office,’ and I don’t know if it was a role I could do, but I liked the character. You do one take, and you’re reading with a person who’s just sitting in a chair and not really… you’re not playing off someone, which is what I like to do. I like to play around and find the moment.

I was always a clown. In the eighth grade I won a city speech contest by doing an Eddie Murphy routine. I’m no good at public speaking, but if I can assume a role and speak as that person, then I’m fine. When I had to give a book report, I always did it in character.
If someone called and the role was good and there was dignity and integrity in the piece, I’d be up for it, of course I would. It’s so hard for older women in acting so when you hear of an older woman having a renaissance in their career, I really applaud it.

Al Gore‘s problem, in my view, is that he never liked politics. He’s actually deeply uncomfortable in it but felt he had to do it because of his father.

No one can make you happy. No one can help you grow in life more than you can. I can love you to death, but I can only go so far. I can inspire and encourage you as much as I can, but when you play an active role to find that self-security and that self-worth, it makes the difference.

Back in the day, when the D.J. would be playing a record, I’d be on the mic trying to hype up the crowd.
