Life Free Quotes BY Ben  Kingsley 

There is so much   to do on a film set. It is an extraordinarily invigorating and wonderful   place to be, when things are running well.

One of the   greatest things drama can do, at it's best, is to redefine the words we use   every day such as love, home, family, loyalty and envy. Tragedy need not be a   downer.

The camera does   not like acting. The camera is only interested in filming behaviour. So you   damn well learn your lines until you know them inside out, while standing on   your head!


I think I'm more   bonded, emotionally and in a craft sense, to films that tell extraordinary   stories about extraordinary destinies.

I think Romeo and   Juliet is uplifting. That's how much a son wishes to avenge his father. That   is how much two young people can love each other.

I just loved   playing a man who was unafraid of making an idiot of himself in the process   of falling in love. I found that admirable.

If I were to play   somebody who ran a fish and chip shop, I would not work in a fish and chip   shop for three months. Staring at chips is not going to help me in my   performance.
