Anne-Marie Duff Quotes

Any kind of conflict draws me to a role.

Your heart ... it's a very fragile muscle. You have to take care of it, be old-fashioned about it.

— Anne-Marie Duff

Healthy love, I always think, is ... wanting the person you love to be more of themselves. And I think for a parent that's a challenge, because you have to let a baby spread its wings.

— Anne-Marie Duff

I try very hard not to take work home, but it can be tricky. Sometimes it feels as if you are wearing your costume underneath your own clothes! I suppose things are always ticking away in the back of your mind.

— Anne-Marie Duff

I am very lucky. I have known wonderful romantic love in my life but to actually see this little creature and find him to be the most beautiful creature in the world. I know all mothers and fathers feel that way.

— Anne-Marie Duff

I'm someone who laughs a lot and cries a lot.

— Anne-Marie Duff

I didn't really know anything about Margot Fonteyn. I'd never really been a ballet child, so I had no idea what an incredibly huge icon she was, not just in terms of a creative icon - she was also a style icon. I had no idea she was up there with Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis in terms of that kind of image.

— Anne-Marie Duff

I think creative people need to do a bit of, you know, tuning into every radio station - you just do, otherwise you don't know much about other people. You kind of have to learn a bit about yourself so you can work out how we all behave and why we do the things we do.

— Anne-Marie Duff

The level of sacrifice in the world of dancing is incredibly intense, that work ethic if nothing else - get up, go to class, rehearsal, performance, get up, go to class - that's your life, and it's like that for a finite time, usually.

— Anne-Marie Duff

I think it helps to have a good old-fashioned trajectory, plodding along. Obviously one has an ego and it's really easy to have that ego tickled, but what helps me get through the night is if I concentrate on just quality of work so that I don't panic about my profile.

— Anne-Marie Duff

I was quite shy. I used to write stories all the time, and I think that was a worry for my parents.

There are some roles you just don't say 'no' to. Those compass points: you get them so rarely as an actress.

— Anne-Marie Duff

When I started drama school, theatre was the main draw. I never had any movie star notions. Not that there were family ties to the theatre, either.

— Anne-Marie Duff

People can be a bit flagrant when they're having an affair. Most of the time, there's an element of it where they want to be discovered because they're in crisis. They need the boil to be burst, in some way, for a resolution.

— Anne-Marie Duff

You want to have enough of a profile to be able to do all the work you can, but at the same time you want to have your own space. But there are a lot of actors who achieve it, a lot of movie stars even, people like Emily Watson and Cate Blanchett. They seem to be able to carry on with their lives and still produce wonderful, high-profile work.

— Anne-Marie Duff

The experience of having a child does crack you wide open. I felt like I suddenly had to rebuild the skin that I'd grown over the years before having a child. Perhaps that might be quite interesting in terms of acting.

— Anne-Marie Duff

There are people out there with three jobs and small children. Being an actor is a walk in the park compared to working as a cleaner overnight. I'm lucky I'm not plucking chickens.

— Anne-Marie Duff

You just grow up and learn to think instead of just feel.

— Anne-Marie Duff
