Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Robert Sheehan Quotes. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
I’m always going on about how I could just eat Japanese food and nothing else until the day I die.
I think people should feel less restricted by the perimeters of things like ‘menswear’ and ‘womenswear.’ It’s not something that I really give much credence to when I’m buying clothes. I buy mostly ladies clothes. I think to be yourself, first and foremost, that’s the easiest way to think about it.
One thing that I’m continually reminded of is just to always find something that will challenge you in a new way, a very new way, and that’s not the easiest of roads, but it’s the most exciting.
Acting is an incredibly gratifying, creative experience when you’re doing it. But in the off-season, you want to scratch that itch, and writing has become that to me. It’s a really pure form of creativity. It’s good for my mental health in the same way reading books is good for me. It makes the day brighter.
I’d like to be a steadily working actor and to do as many things as possible. I’m really enjoying the life.
The more I get used to my life, the more restless I become.
Who doesn’t change through their 20s? I changed probably more than the average person who lives in one place and has a job. But everybody changes significantly in maturity, we’d like to think, from 20 to 30.

John Hurt was pretty bad. I know it’s pretty terrible to besmirch the memory of a dead man, but he was really rude to me.
I’ll always be somebody who spends a lot of time in a lot of places; that’s just always going to be the way. But I try to spend as much time in Ireland as I can, because it’s lovely, and it feels like a release.
With supernatural type of movies, if they’re not done correctly, there are a lot of actors just running and screaming and looking scared for an hour and forty, and that can get a bit old.
There are actors who do various different shades of a similar character, which is fine. But I prefer the Cillian Murphy school of doing something that takes you so far outside yourself that it’s an incredible challenge and adventure.
I was a huge fan of ‘Fargo.’ I binge-watched the first two seasons in a couple of weeks. I loved that series.
When you work in a creative environment, people get protective about their ideas. Sometimes it’s justified; sometimes it’s about ego.
If you see a gaggle of teenagers walking towards you, you tend not to make eye contact, because you know they’re going to recognise you. You learn to adapt: 99.999 per cent of people aren’t looking to be harmful or unpleasant; they just want something, a photograph or an autograph.
I didn’t read a lot of comic books. But I was into ‘Dandy and The Beano,’ which were like a weekly pulp fiction that featured characters like Desperate Dan, Dennis the Menace, and Billy Whizz – pretty simplistic stuff but very entertaining.
I’m always nudging myself into discomfort zones as much as I can.
You can almost liken ‘Bad Samaritan’ to ‘Funny Games’ because it’s that theme of horror just down the street in your neighborhood.

Part of progressing in acting is turning down work, and that’s hard; it’s very, very hard to do. And I think you have to do that so as not to undermine your own sense of value.
There are instances where, in my mid to late 20s, I very often found myself going for roles that they didn’t want to cast me in, because I’d done good work, but in a producer’s eyes, I wasn’t high enough status. So I lost out.
