Quotes by: Danny Boyle

Danny Boyle
One of Dickens' biggest influences was the growth of London as a Victorian city, and the extremes being created as it expanded.
Danny Boyle
Actors are steeped in a world of agents and where the next job is coming from and what are their expenses and what is the hotel like. You want to take them out of that world and dump them into another world, so that when you meet them on the screen they don't seem like the guy who was in two others movies that year.
Danny Boyle
Both of my sisters have been teachers and they used to say you get asked between 300 and 600 questions every day which you have to answer. That's exactly what directing is. And the vast majority of those questions are not very interesting really, but they need somebody to make a decision - a good one or a bad one - and they follow it.
Danny Boyle
Some of us are interested in directors, but really the vast majority of us are interested in actors. You experience the films through the actors, so they're all locked into your imagination in some kind of layer of fantasy or hatred or wherever they settle into your imagination.
Danny Boyle

Always changing genres, making very different films is a good idea. It's a way of making yourself feel vulnerable again, getting back to that innocence. As is working within a circumspect budget.
Danny Boyle
Actors want to impress at the beginning, so you take advantage of that by suddenly saying, 'Right, you're here for two weeks.' What you're doing is creating a siege mentality.
Danny Boyle
I always think, when there's stuff that people don't like, I always say that if I have another success, I'll enjoy it more, but you don't really.
Danny Boyle
I learned with 'The Beach' that I'm a bit better lower down the radar.
