Tim Curry is an English actor and singer. He believes that "a silly evening in the theatre is a good thing”. The view is not at all surprising, coming from a man, who had decided to become an actor before he joined University of Birmingham with English and Drama. Although known mostly for his villainous roles, he has actually portrayed various kinds of roles in theatre, film and television, declaring in an interview that “Contrary to popular belief, I don't just play dreadful old villains.” Unlike many actors, he does not believe in getting too close to the character or undertake much historical research because it may lead to a conflict with the author’s view. Let us now look into some of his famous quotes on theatre, dream, imagination, childhood, music, business etc.
