"You know, I’ve knocked around in this business 70 years, and I still haven’t quite figured out what it is I do. But it’s been – the years have just been full of surprises for me. And a lot of fun. Aren’t we lucky to have found a line of work that doesn’t require growing up?"

"And when I was prowling around the idea and wondering whether I could take the risk of doing it, for some reason the guiding principle of the Hippocratic Oath kept nagging at me: First do no harm. And with that modest but important ambition, I set out.

­Daniel Day-Lewis, Male Actor in a Leading Role
