Quotes of Jeffrey Jones

#Quote
1(On the box office and critical failure of Howard the Duck (1986) ) There's no point in worrying what you've just done. What you've done is done. I'm proud of it and I'm happy with my part in it. Onto the next.
2I don't think I have a particular style or acting technique. What I think I have is the ability to fiddle with my own character and make it do different things.
3I didn't so much learn how to act at the London Academy as I did about speech, movement and how to relax. Their attitude was that the acting was basically up to you.
4My intentions as an actor are always to make whatever I'm doing work. I look for the piece to be good as a whole and then, hopefully, to have something good for myself as an actor. I've always been intent on giving to both the project and myself.
