Christopher Lambert's Quotes

  • It's not a matter of becoming a superstar. Fame and money aren't the purpose of all this. No actor's going to say, "I don't want to be famous." But the main purpose for doing what I'm doing is the passion in the work.
  • It may be a mistake to say this, but I know my limitations as an actor and I know what I can and can not do. Robert De Niro can do everything. I can't. A "Highlander" movie is basically my thing. What I'm attempting to do is develop my ability as an actor and try to be the best I can be in the fantasy/action genre. I would love to do a "Rain Man," but I think ultimately this is my thing.
  • [Advice to struggling actors] The most important thing is to be passionate and ready to accept the pains that sometimes go along with the business.
  • Acting is still, of course, what I love to do most. The beauty of it is that by changing characters, it never gets boring.
  • [2010 - On if always being questioned about Highlander bothers him] No. It's like, would people like Clint Eastwood be upset because they talk about Dirty Harry? Or Mel Gibson because they talk about Mad Max or Harrison Ford because they talk about Indiana Jones? I think in some ways it's good to have at least one thing for which you could be really immortal, you know?
