Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Phoebe Fox Quotes. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
I like to do the whole gamut of emotions on stage – big crying, shouting, hair-pulling.
It’s incredibly frustrating to constantly read scripts where you’re the girlfriend who is there to further the man’s storyline.
I haven’t seen a lot of horror because I’m ridiculously sensitive and I get scared really easily.
People just need to go back to the ancient crafts. We should teach people to do whittling at school, or knitting.
My parents are actors as well, so I grew up around that world. It was always a very romantic, mythical world. They did a lot of theater, so to me an actor was getting to come backstage and dressing room mirrors with bulbs around them and trying on people’s costumes. It was very exciting to me as a child.
I admire actors such as Laura Linney, Cate Blanchett and Andrea Riseborough, who take risks and fight to not be defined by their gender.
I remember my parents were always around, and that was glorious, but as an adult and as an actor I look back now and see, no, they were at home for long stints because they were unemployed.
I don’t like water generally.
Sight by Jessie Greengrass was put up on Instagram by an acquaintance, so no one actually recommended it to me personally and yet it had a profound effect on me. The book deals with the conflicting emotions brought to the surface when you are deep in the throes of your ‘child-bearing’ years.
My first filming job was one of the first episodes of ‘Black Mirror,’ before anyone knew what that was going to be. It was this mad project with some great people behind it – and now it’s ‘Black Mirror!’ It was sort of baptism by fire.
I read somewhere that it’s scientifically proven that kids who read ‘Harry Potter’ grow up to be more well balanced and tolerant when they’re older.
You have to be able to hold up a mirror to your personality at drama school and recognise the flaws. That’s hard to do as a 17-year-old. But it’s easier to cope with when you’re a little bit older.
I tend to want to go quite big in my acting, which you just cannot do in front of a camera. It’s taken me a while to learn how to pull it back.
Something about the way I look screams ‘aristocrat, 1940s.’ It’s so strange, because I’m not.
I had horrendous teeth. I had 10 years of orthodontist treatment, everything you can think of.
I definitely don’t think I could be in an open relationship.
Christopher Walken would make a bed time story pretty interesting I reckon.
It’s refreshing to tell a story from a woman’s point of view which says it’s normal not to want kids.
The period characters I have played have all been these wonderfully forward-thinking women.
There are centuries worth of conditioning telling us that the thing that gives women status or importance is beauty.
I like Shakespeare, but it’s not my bread and butter. It’s not what fires me up about acting at all.A lot of the ingenue parts leave a lot to be desired, in my opinion.
The energy that you expend making yourself look frightened and feeling frightened is just as hard as crying and shouting and all the other extremities of emotion.
My first scene ever on camera was a dinner scene and I ate all the food. They yelled cut and the actor across from me was like, ‘You know you’re going to have to eat the same thing every single time.’ I learned the hard way.
I’d be happy just to do theatre work but it can’t pay the bills.
Women who are clever actresses have longevity because they’re amazing actors, not because the camera loves them.
My first play was ‘A Month in the Country’ at the Chichester Festival Theatre.
I have quite a dry sense of humour. It comes out when I’m feeling nervous.
I’m incredibly lazy. On a day off, I’m more likely to be sitting on our sofa reading a book than out and about being active. I sometimes do a bit of yoga but I find it hard to get motivated for any kind of physical exercise.
I’d always wanted to go to drama school.
My parents had multiple jobs.
