I think anybody would be hard pressed not to relate to at least one of the characters, because there's so many different multifaceted people populating this crazy world.— Michael C. Hall
The most strong Michael C. Hall quotes that are new and everybody is talking about
I like to think I am well-mannered. If I have the option at a breakfast place, I'll go with the grits. That's how Southern I am.
I don't think closeted homosexual morticians have the market cornered on self-loathing or sense of shame.
There are no secrets in life; just hidden truths that lie beneath the surface.
I certainly know there are people in positions of power in the business who lack imagination and, perhaps as a result of that, think of me as 'David'. But I wouldn't really want to work with those people, you know?
It's interesting to play a role where you don't really have to preoccupy yourself with any need to convince yourself that you're not acting.
Honestly, I think some of my family members of a certain generation were more skittish about me playing a gay character on Six Feet Under than watching me play a killer.
Dexter's a unique killer in that his father saw his dark impulses, shined a light on them, and told Dexter that he saw them, he accepted them, that Dexter is good and that he is worthy of love. And I think that's what enables him to focus his energies in this unique way.
Marriage, children-you never expect it to end in tragedy. Unless you're me.
For me, it was more a dramatic shift to go from the stage to the screen.
I think I had a shyness about me, I think I discovered acting as a way to break out of that and as a way of belonging, a sense of being special.
So it's really nice after about a year and a half to get back on stage and flex those old muscles.
I mean, the competition is really created by the buzz around the Emmys.
It's a totally subjective thing.
Sometimes men present a swagger that suggests a prowess, whether it's sexual or financial. L.A. seems to be a place where trying too hard is almost a given. Some people are unapologetic about how blatantly they represent who they are through what they wear or drive. Subtlety is in short supply.
As time passes, I feel more and more a sense of acting being a fundamental part of who I am.
Ultimately, I'm a mess. I don't mean I'm a mess, like, emotionally - I mean, I think probably everybody's a mess. David's a mess. But. I'm talking about... I'm messy.
My mother is a survivor who's had a lot of things happen in her life that have been very trying.
I'm very focused on "Dexter" right now. I want to make it as good of a show as we can.
I never really considered acting as a career until I moved to New York.
I think we're really - we're doing a really great job doing our show, and other shows are doing a great job doing theirs, and we'll just see what people have to say.
People feel like they know me from the work I have done, but it's not me.
I have this dream where Little Chino keeps showing up at my door.
I would have to kill him even though I was at home trying to have a nice meal with my family. Every time he (Chino) would come to the door, I'm like, 'you again!' But I was myself (not Dexter) in the dream. I'm rolling my eyes in the dream because it is so absurd. It was like, this is ridiculous because you (Chino) are not even real!
