Work wise, as a stunt
woman, I enjoy telly
– or TV – because – and, as an actor – I kind of enjoy the urgency
of it. I enjoy the problem-solving

for hours. And, if something goes wrong
, we don’t have time to shoot
something else for four
days until we sort it out.

happy, choose that instead. I’m serious. Comedy is punishing

. If somebody else can find something else which we didn’t find, that, of course, is a duty
on their part, as is the truth. It will be the truth.
I think people are transient
. Back in the early
church, there was a ‘stick
and stay’ mentality

mentality of ministry
. If it doesn’t fit them or if it doesn’t fit in their schedule, they’ll move on to something else. That’s a norm in today’s time.
And that had a powerful appeal
to those who had been denied

I just always loved stand-up. It’s like magic. You say something, and a whole room full
of people laughs

in that… I don’t know, it’s just like magic.
GSP, that little syrup sucker
, he can come get this. He thinks he’s the greatest welterweight of all time

only serves so much, and then you want to fill
your well up again and be charged
by something else.
What I hope is that I don’t just become ‘Peter from ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.’ I want to try and do something else to be a good actor
and a respected
I love ‘Sex and the City,’ but it’s also wonderful that there’s something else other than ‘Sex and the City.’
You know, I had my mother and my father convincing
me that he would be going back to Hollywood and he’d be back with the actresses and dating them and that he wasn’t serious about me at all. So I had him saying one thing to me and my parents telling me something else.
I mean the only thing

I’ve realized through the years
that I just find happiness in other things, whether it’s my dogs

of not letting
me, and to be true to who I am, always.

on the merits

at that moment and aren’t just relying
on your success in doing something else, it’s all good; people will respect you.
to take on something else that is not you and make it very real and have others be able to associate
with it. It’s wonderful to provoke

once you become an adult. I’ll probably move on to something else.
Gold actually has properties
– you can use gold
for all sorts of things. People value

happy, choose that instead. I’m serious. Comedy is punishing

a relationship. Everyone came to my house.
Never eat while doing something else, because you won’t get the satisfaction

I love good balance, so being a collector
is a fun little thing
while we travel
this world. I mean, every night
, it’s something else. The other night, I head-banged a dude
on my rental car and drove
him through the curtain
in my rental car. So some moments are not as good as others, but they are all fun, that’s for sure.
I like to stand in my kitchen
with the script on a counter
that’s about chest high. Usually I do something else at the same time – make a chicken
or slice vegetables

long I just read it over and over and over.

who are going to tell them one thing and then when they get in office do something else.
But I find the best things
I do, I do when I’m trying to avoid doing something else I’m supposed to be doing. You know, you’re working on something. You get bugged, or you lose your enthusiasm

When I’m curious
about something, I do it full on and take it as far as I go, but when I feel like I’ve really explored
it, I’m OK with putting it aside
and going on to something else.
The audience wants to hear ‘Rock n’ Me,’ ‘Space Cowboy
,’ ‘Living in the U.S.A.’ When you start to play something else, you can feel the interest and enthusiasm go; the steam

that it’s this way in the U.S.

A lot of tragedy

‘ is the sound of me and the producer
in the studio doing whatever we like. There is no reference

It’s good to give people a jolt. If they’re expecting

out, but then they start to think, ‘This is not going to be conventional
. I’m going to enjoy this.’
In fashion design
, you can divide
people into two groups

.’ One season
it can be this; the next season it’s completely something else. I always knew I am more of a jumper.
I feel strongly
for the younger actresses when a lot of their career is based
on how they look. That must be hard when your looks begin
to go and you haven’t built up the wealth

to get into something else.
When someone gets closely related
to a character they play on TV, it’s very hard to break that mold
and go on to do something else.

again,’ even big huge actors, and so they’ll take something thinking that something else will never come along.
I have given up
the idea that there is an opposition-free church out there. But I have gained something else – an appreciation

everything of yourself. Then you can let something else happen.

Maybe I’ll paint, do photography, just something else. I can see that.
You have to force yourself to give up and to move onto something else. That’s the way you grow as a writer, by trying new things

People only look at you and say, ‘You are black and you are from the banlieue,’ and all the doors
. I had the desire to be something else. If I see a door that is a little open, I will find a way to get through.
I’ve been through so many different phases
because I moved around so much. I never found my identity based on where I was from. It was always pick up and explore something else.
As an actor, you express certain things
because they need to be expressed, and then you don’t really feel a need to do it again. I want to feel something else, you know?
I have a very strong imagination
and have since I was a little kid. That is where a lot of my world comes from. It’s like I’m off somewhere
else. And I can have a problem in life because of that, because I’m always off in some other world thinking about something else. It’s constant.
Usually I do a job, and, like, two weeks
later, it disappears
and is replaced
with something else, but ‘Get Out’ kept growing and growing and growing, and it keeps taking me to rooms
I could never get in before.
where I felt let down
and I was wishing it would be something else. Not that it’s their duty to please
me, but at the same time, I think a lot about what it’s like through the eyes

something else completely, obviously.
Phryne Fisher could walk down the red carpet
; Essie Davis
is something else.
If you try to multitask in the classic

much time you have, and then you have to give something else your full attention.
If you are a manager at the top level, there is pressure, but you have it because you want to be there. If not, you would do something else.

I see no point
something that I understand, know, love and think will have a great future

person, you’ll never come off looking unprofessional, whether it’s social media

; the pace of the game in the EPL is something else and rightly
for me is maybe the best league in the world.
Working harder is not a sustainable solution

. It’s time to get more creative. Instead of choosing one
thing we love over something else we love, we must ask, ‘how can I do both?’ And, then, we can find solutions
I’m always polite
, but I wasn’t like, ‘Oh, please give me the job,’ for ‘Robin Hood
‘ because I didn’t think I’d get it. I got told about the audition just a few days before I went to India to film something else. I must have been a bit cocky

Over the years, many young actors
have approached me: Vusi Kunene, Sello Maake ka Ncube, and Seputla Sebogodi. They all said, ‘Hey Bra John

, I’d just go do something else. I don’t have a commitment to it or to really, frankly
, almost any institution

to be a part of this team

from the project you’re working on the other 23 hours. That’s the thing – it replenishes you to do something else.

with something else, and it will make a story. But you never know when it’s going to happen.

I was playing, I started to really see the board. I don’t mean just seeing a few moves ahead – something else. My game started getting better
. It’s the patterns

anything with a uniform because I’ve done it so much. There’s a lot more I can offer. It’s just getting people to see something else.

point, and the pinnacle event
, you just need to go on, and something else will happen.
I didn’t make music videos
in order to make a movie. Music videos were the goal for me, so it was never a step to something else. I approached it seriously

is that I’m recognized all over the world through ‘Red Dwarf

there and see an Army tank
coming at you. You see it on a TV screen, it’s one thing. You see it at a movie theater

high and 180 feet long, now that looks like a tank.
