Frases Laurence Olivier

„If I wasn't an actor, I think I'd have gone mad. You have to have extra voltage, some extra temperament to reach certain heights.“

— Laurence Olivier
Context: If I wasn't an actor, I think I'd have gone mad. You have to have extra voltage, some extra temperament to reach certain heights. Art is a little bit larger than life — it's an exhalation of life and I think you probably need a little touch of madness. As quoted in Laurence Olivier (1979) by Foster Hirsch, p. 166

„Acting is illusion, as much illusion as magic is — and not so much a matter of being real.“

— Laurence Olivier
Context: Acting is illusion, as much illusion as magic is — and not so much a matter of being real. I mean, I would probably shock Lee Strasberg. As quoted in Famous Actors and Actresses on the American Stage (1975) by William C. Young, p. 885
