Motivational Quotes From Ben Kingsley

There was one   titanic guiding light on the film set, and I was in the presence of a true   Mahatma, in the deepest and most profound sense of the word.

When I choose a   role it's either because I recognise the man, or that I'm very curious to   know him. If I neither recognise nor know him, then it is better that I don't   play him.

Fifteen years   before I became a screen actor, I was in the theatre. A lot of my work was   comedy, which I loved doing. It's harder.

I think that you   can fall into bad habits with comedy... It's a tightrope to stay true to the   character, true to the irony, and allow the irony to happen.

But filming is   good for you, because the crew isn't allowed to laugh. You can't get addicted   to getting the laugh.

I was fortunate as   a young actor, to go straight to the RSC, where I learned that being an actor   can bring with it wonderful responsibilities.

I think that most   actors, and they're a very strange lot actors, very strange people, but I   think that they attempt to keep in touch with the child.
