Harald Zwart's Quotes

  • There are so many rules in Hollywood. I'm not allowed to talk to extras. If I do, then suddenly they can claim higher pay. One time somebody fooled me. He asked: "Shall I stand like this?" I said "OK" and then it was done. The extra got pushed higher up in the system and got three times as much pay.
  • It's weird not being home in Norway in the summer. I miss 'Reiseradioen' on NRK (legendary Norwegian summer radio show). Almost every day I check the internet to see what the weather is like back home.
