“I think becoming an actor is a ridiculously insecure profession to go into. Most of the books I like involve people I could never play in a million years.” — Hugh Dancy

“Just looking at a girl felt awkward. When you feel like an oddball, it never really leaves you. Even now, I’m better around people who are uncomfortable with themselves, the misfits.”

“We are completely the puppets of all the actors, okay? They’ll be writing the script for us. Especially the six-year-old, she’s not gonna buy a word you’ve written.”
- Tarsem Singh, on the set of The Fall.
Tarsem Singh spent 8 years searching for the right actress to play Alexandria before he began shooting the film. Alexandria’s charming and enigmatic character was, according to Singh, the driving force that could carry the film’s story. The interactions seen between Roy and Alexandria are essentially unrefined and natural, and the chemistry between the actors is very tangible. The development of their onscreen relationship in the resulting scenes corresponds with the relationship Lee and Catinca built in reality, as the hospital scenes were filmed consecutively.
