Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Eoin Macken Quotes. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
You never know with a new show. It takes awhile for shows to find their feet and for people to connect with it.
If you could do ‘Mario Kart’ as a really cool film I’d do that.
I learnt how acting is more about listening to the other person; it is about reaction. You learn to be a foil, and that helped when it came to directing.
I go through periods where I feel very confident about stuff but other periods that are insecure… I find doing different stuff removes the responsibility of focussing on one thing.
Youth is one of the most visceral times that I remember.
I think modelling helped me. I was very shy and self-conscious when I went to college, and I think in some ways modelling exacerbates those things – because it’s all about you being the centre of attention – but it also helped me travel.
With acting, you have to put in the groundwork, then maybe you’ll get lucky. It’s a slog but it’s also fun.
And even when I was 18, 19, 20 in college, I did a couple of plays in the drama society, I didn’t want to play the lead, I just wanted two lines, and I didn’t want to be there because I didn’t like it.
The fun of that sci-fi and adventure stuff is that it’s always somebody who’s not believed and is not being trusted. If you saw an alien walk across the street, who are you gonna tell? Who would believe you?
I was just fascinated with the brain and the mind, and I found psychology engaging for writing about people, and that fed into my interest in cinema.
When you watch ‘Alien’ you feel that they are touching stuff as opposed to ‘Star Trek’, where they’re clearly not.
When you write a book, people legitimise it by actually reading the book and so it’s almost okay to write another one.
I used to read a lot of Isaac Asimov and Philip Dick and ‘Inland Empire’s’ one of the earlier books I read!
And then modelling, because it pays you really well and you get to travel, I was forced to get used to the idea of standing in front of a camera and having six or seven people watching me and that actually allowed me to loosen up from an acting point of view.
In a modelling shoot you are trying to play a character, a role. There are models who are dead, who have no expression whatever. I think you need to use your physicality, your sense of humour and your emotion when you model.
Because if someone writes something and they have decided this is what it is, it’s my job to make it work unless it’s way out of left field.
A lot of fashion photographers are telling a story with their pictures.
I love Sci-Fi. It’s pretty much all I watch.
