  • A good comedy’s very hard to make, so good comic writing I really enjoy.

    "Colm Meaney Manifest Destiny". Interview with Emma Brown, June 7, 2012.
  • Normally when I'm sent a script I'll read it through to see how it hangs as a story and then I'll go back and read it through again and look at the character.

  • I do go back to Ireland, and I'll probably be doing a film in Ireland in January, and I guess that kind of keeps me classified as 'the Irish actor,' but the last four or five projects that I've been in are either American or English, so I don't feel terribly trapped in that. But sometimes, yeah, you would like to not be called 'the Irish actor.' You'd prefer to just be called 'the actor.'

    Interview with Will Harris, December 4, 2009.
  • As an actor, I like to get a bit of momentum going with a character and kind of work a bit quicker. I mean, not crazy-fast, but, you know, five or six pages a day is a nice pace.

    Interview with Will Harris, November 4, 2011.
  • There are so many burning issues to be dealt with that it's completely understandable and natural that a character is struggling with these issues themselves. In that struggle, you inform the audience. The thing about this writing is that it's very easy to learn. Good writing always is.

  • Colin Morgan gives a stunning performance in Parked; he plays Merlin in the BBC TV show and he says the two characters are like night and day. Watch him. He’s got everything it takes to be top notch.

  • You never know when the publicity people will feel it is a good time to release the film.

  • I kind of have an interest in all history. And I suspect it comes from being Irish - we like stories, we like telling stories, which makes a lot of us lean towards being writers or actors or directors.

    "Q&A – Colm Meaney (Thomas Durant)". Interview with Brian Fegter,
  • I usually read a script from an audience perspective first, and then look more closely at the character only.

  • The digital revolution has changed the way we do things because you're not under that pressure that film is precious and film is expensive.

  • I suppose I look for humor in most situations because it humanizes things; it makes a character much more three-dimensional if there's some kind of humor. Not necessarily laugh-out-loud type of stuff, just a sense that there is a humorous edge to things. I do like that.

    "Colm Meaney’s Manifest Destiny". Interview with Emma Brown, June 7, 2012.
  • Even in drama, I like to try to find the humor because I think it's very human. Even in the depths of dreadful situations, there's usually something rather comic, or something you can laugh about afterwards, at least.

  • I do probably 80 or 90 per cent of the cooking at home.

  • I do like working on independent films where it is a smaller budget and less pressure. The pace is also quicker than that of a big budget film. You are shooting at a fairly fast pace. Sitting around for three or four days can be quite draining. So I guess in terms of film or television, I would say filming an independent feature.

  • If you're playing a historical character that's in the public consciousness, then obviously you've got to make an effort to look like that person and there's a huge amount of historical record there that you have to kind of comply to.

  • My old manager of the Irish National Theatre said 'Don't worry about being a star, just worry about being a working actor. Just keep working.' I think that's really good advice.

    Stars   Thinking   Worry  
  • Well, Ive always been a character actor, you know, and you always get your share of character actors who are bad guys.
