I've always wanted to play a spy, because it is the ultimate acting exercise.
You are never what you seem.
It's an interesting arc. You start with a character [Doctor Strange] who's likeable and charming but very arrogant and distant. He's funny but you can see there are massive holes in his life. It's a very painful transition and all that he becomes is tested so quickly and violently.
Talking about class terrifies me. There is no way of winning.
I think anyone who works in medicine has superpowers.
One of the best things about being an actor is that it's a meritocracy.
[Role of Dr.Strange] gives me an excuse as an actor to be learning with my character, which is something you can do authentically - I'm not a martial arts expert, I'm certainly no sorcerer, so all these things, the movement of the body, the physicality, the changes he goes through mentally and physically, obviously we're not shooting in sequence, but it's a great part.
Fame is a weird one. You need to distance yourself from it. People see a value in you that you don't see yourself.
I'm not very geeky. I'm quite homespun. I would say I'm more modern rustic than gadget-orientated. I like woollen things and log fires and whiskey

Because reading is one of the joys of life, and once you begin, you can't stop, and you've got so many stories to look forward to.
If I'd had fame early on, I'd have been able to abuse it in the way that a young man should.
People always want to knock you when you're up.
I think I've had very knee-jerk emotional reactions to things, and sometimes I've said things without thinking. Being overly emotional clouded my judgment.
[Doctor Strange] is a really rich character.
It's an easy thing to have a good old meal every day. It's great. Yeah, I'm excited.
I think I'm a very good driver. Apparently, the cause of road rage - as with most anger - is some kind of superiority complex, which, god knows, cars foster.

It’s not just the guy with guns—it’s the guy with brains.
It still makes me giggle that I'm paid to act.
I'm a high-functioning sociopath, do your research.
I always seem to be cast as slightly wan, ethereal, troubled intellectuals or physically ambivalent bad lovers. But I'm here to tell you I'm quite the opposite in real life. In fact I'm a f**king fantastic lover.
It's one of the things that attracted me to the role [Doctor Strange] is the fact that it's a really widely origin story, I mean this is part of it, but of course there's the whole chapter before where he's the neurosurgeon who has the accident. It's fantastic.
I can’t stop traffic on Fifth Avenue, not unless I walk in front of an oncoming cab.
Not that i had a big arse but even that was toned.
I try to work hard. I'm really proud of what I get to do as a living. I still pinch myself. But I also know it's a craft, and I can get better at it and learn every time I do it. So I try to work hard no matter what the task is.
I don't wear a mask, I don't have a suit.

Even though Doctor Strange is an established character, when you're doing an origin story there's a lot of room for manoeuvre.
I wanted to take the audience on a journey where that transition was funny and awkward. It's the same cynicism that [Strange] has.
[Doctor Strange] is still quite cocky by the end of the film.
No, I'd say the major curve for him is that he learns that it's not all about him, that there's a greater good. But what he thinks he was doing as a neurosurgeon, that was good because it benefitted people's health was really just a furtherment of his attempts to control death and control his own fate and other people's, but that's still driven by the ego.
It'd be really nice to wake up looking like, I don't know, Jake Gyllenhaal and think "Let's try this on for a day and see how it feels.
Being a posh actor in England you cannot escape the class-typing from whatever side you look at it.
The training gave me the building blocks to get through it.
A production of that scale, in a theater that big, you are going to struggle to keep your voice at first-run perfectness. All that work I did - the pull-ups and pushups - helped keep my body fit. Hamlet, the show, is a cardiovascular workout of about three hours, never mind the mental, soul-crushing element of it.

I'm a Prince of Wales Trust ambassador, so I'm all about giving youth an education, a voice and a chance to not take the wrong road.
I had parents who were working actors, who did really well in their careers, but it was a living. So it was a reality for me growing up; it wasn't a fantasy. It wasn't sitting there going, "I want to be adored." It wasn't that at all. Not to say that the screams of fans aren't a smile-raiser, but that was never the pull for me.
I had a very sparse comic upbringing - not because I was being whipped into reading Chekhov and Dickens, but I read Asterix on holidays when I was a kid, and Tin Tin was featured, I remember, for a few years.
There are moments when, like all of us, you get a bit self-conscious and you'd rather not be living any of your day in public. Those are the awkward times, but you've got to have fun with it.
Even the cerebral characters I play seem to have physical quirks.
They're all "physically inhabited," for lack off a better expression. For instance, Sherlock Holmes has very particular physical gestures which are drawn out in such detail.
I think the characters are supposed to be an open book, blank canvas.
