It’s shocking to say, but the cinema is quite a while away from me, and I haven’t got a car yet.
I’d like to own my own garage and my own fishery. I’d also like to be a professional fisherman. But I’ll take whatever happens.
I’m going to change my image – backward caps, the lot.
I think I’d take a human butler over a robot one.
Well, my closest friends are still the ones that I went to school with, but it’s nice to go to work, at the studios, and have people there that you’re willing to talk to and have a good conversation with.
I had been working for eight years and all I had to show for it was this horrible debt. At one point we had the bailiff at the door.
I have done a bit of recording and the songs are available on iTunes, and I’ve got some nice comments. It’s something I enjoy doing, but I’m not looking for a singing career any time soon. As long as one person gets enjoyment out of it, I’m happy to make it available.
I hope to be scaring children for the rest of my life.
If young children boo me, that makes my day.
I’m always buying gadgets, especially at airports.
It took us a lot of man hours to get that bloody white hair out, so it’s good to get rid of it.
There are a couple of carp fishing books I’ve been reading. I’m very interested in that line of books, because I think they write very well, carp anglers, about the general environment.
One thing that people keep on saying to me is that the wealth and the fame must have made up for missing out on my childhood. But the idea of money – putting a price on your childhood – is ridiculous. You will never get those years back and you can’t put a price on them.
If someone tried to take the hierarchy thing too seriously – for example, being lovely to producers but moaning to runners about the tea – that would not be accepted on ‘Harry Potter’; someone would pull you aside and have a word.
I’m a keen musician. Me and my mates have a great times jamming and recording stuff. We have a great band behind us and have turned my nursery-rhyme songs into quite credible pieces of music.
